What a strange column from George Will:

If reactionary liberals, unsatisfied with dominating the mainstream media, academia and Hollywood, were competitive on talk radio, they would be uninterested in reviving the fairness doctrine. Having so sullied liberalism’s name that they have taken to calling themselves progressives, liberals are now ruining the reputation of reactionaries, which really is unfair.

Nobody is trying to revive the fairness doctrine. I’m not sure how many times this can be said.

Meanwhile, how dominant can liberals really be in the mainstream media if we can’t even stop George Will from just making stuff up about us in his widely syndicated Washington Post column?
