The war on (conservative) talk radio has just begun. The Fairness Doctrine was voted down in the Senate; that would have required some "talk police" to balance every conservative and liberal statement 50-50. However, Senator Dick Durbin's "diversity" proposal passed. In practice, it will be even more destructive of conservative talk radio--Durbin's one true aim.
