Schumer: Talk Radio Needs to be Regulated Like Pornography

November 4th, 2008 2:34 PM

Did you know that talk radio needs to be limited on the airwaves just like pornography?

According to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) it does.

I kid you not.

At least, that's what he said on Fox News Tuesday morning when asked his position on the Fairness Doctrine (video embedded right):

Do you think we should allow people to put pornography on the air? Absolutely not. Particularly on television and radio...The very same people who don't want the Fairness Doctrine want the FCC to limit pornography on the air. I am for that. I think pornography should be limited. But you can't say government hands off in one area to a commercial enterprise, but you're allowed to intervene in another. That's not consistent.

Wow. Can you see where this is going, folks?

Is it still Halloween?
