Is it time to return to the rules of the "Fairness Doctrine"

The FCC could return to the rules of the "Fairness Doctrine."The rights for the FCC to make available opposing views on all broadcasts were never taken away by the Supreme Court as the FCC was given those rights back in 1949.Though the rules of the doctrine were done away in the days of Ronald Reagan in the 1980's it wasn't challenged in a court fight.A return to those rules would mean that Limbaugh, MSNBC, FOX, and the rest of opinionated programming would have to give equal time to those with an opposing view point.Should we return to the rules of the "Fairness Doctrine" or should it be challenged and over turned at the Supreme Court level?
