If you can't beat 'em, shut them down

Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) has announced that she fully supports the fairness doctrine and its extension to include cable and satellite as reported...but only Truthbomber cares to speculate as to why.

Could it be because just over a week ago, Eshoo tried to espouse the idea that harsh interrogation methods should be forever banned on The O'Reilly Factor back on December 3 and was given a good thrashing by O'Reilly and his other guest, Congressman Peter Hoekstra (R-MI)? Truthbomber saw the episode and her argument was -- to put it nicely -- a dangerous mix of utopian and naivety. We're talking puppies-and-unicorns-level clueless...and she was appropriately and calmly taken to the woodshed.

So I guess for Congresswoman Eshoo, getting embarrassed in front of the largest cable news audience was enough for her to not look internally for any flawed ideologies or conclusions about how the world works, but instead blow the train whistle for Fairness Doctrine so further holes cannot be blown into the fatally-designed ship known as the U.S.S. Democrat.
