Blackburn Talks Fairness, Broadband

Feb 26, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., in a speech at the Free State Foundation in Washington, argued against reviving the Fairness Doctrine, which would require broadcasters to air both sides of a controversial issue, saying it should be “avoided at all costs,” Broadcasting & Cable reports. She also supported federal investment in making broadband more widely available, estimating a 7% increase in connectivity would create $134 billion in economic gains, B&C says.
