O-Day +28: Fairness Doctrine

A White House spokesman tells President Obama opposes any move to bring back the so-called Fairness Doctrine.
Ah, a 'spokesman' said it, not Obama. We've already seen his history of changing his story when a "spokesman/staffer/etc." makes a comment and not the Lightbringer himself:, March 31, 2008: "Sen. Obama didn't fill out these state Senate questionnaires - a staffer did - and there are several answers that didn't reflect his views then or now," Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for Obama's campaign, said in an e-mailed statement. "He may have jotted some notes on the front page of the questionnaire at the meeting, but that doesn't change the fact that some answers didn't reflect his views. His 11 years in public office do."
My sodium levels are going to go through the roof with all the salt I'll need to take for this current stance.

Spokesmen are useful tools, easily rendered irrelevant, easily over-ridden and easily replaced once their usefulness has passed...
