I don’t think there is any way I can ever support this mandate. The idea in itself is great. I would love to have conflicting views on the airwaves. The problem is that regulation quite often has the opposite effect of its intention.
If a radio station cannot present a view without presenting an opposite view, it will not present any views altogether. Station operators will not go through costly and time-consuming procedures to meet the fairness requirement. When we did have the fairness doctrine, stations decided that providing viewpoints hurt more than it helped.
I also object to the impracticality of hiring more public employees to monitor different mediums, decide what constitutes an opinion and decide what constitutes a sufficient response.
