    31 horsemen of talk radio's apocalypse?

    The Federal Communications Commission has announced the roster of a new advisory committee on "diversity" in communications, a move many critics have warned would mark the beginning of government regulation of talk radio and a reinstallation of the "Fairness Doctrine" by another name.

    As WND reported, a think tank headed by John Podesta, co-chairman of Obama's transition team, mapped out a strategy in 2007 for clamping down on conservative talk radio by requiring stations to be operated by female and minority owners, which the report showed were statistically more likely to carry liberal political talk shows.

    Therefore, the report concluded, the best strategy for getting equal time for "progressives" on radio lies in mandating "diversity of ownership" without ever needing to mention the former FCC policy of requiring airtime for liberal viewpoints, known as the "Fairness Doctrine."

    "Radio is a sound salvation
    Radio is cleaning up the nation.
    They say you better listen to the voice of reason.
    They don't give you any choice because they think that it's treason.
    So you had better do as you are told,
    you better listen to the radio".

    Anyone remember the time he sang it on SNL? I don't think he's ever been asked back.
