Unlike newspapers, TV and radio broadcasting is subject to government regulation in the form of the FCC and the Fairness Doctrine, which requires stations “to devote a reasonable amount of broadcast time to the discussion of controversial issues” and “to do so farily, in order to afford reasonable opportunity for opposing viewpoints.” In this provocative book, Fred W. Friendly, former president of CBS News examines the complex and critical arguments both for and against the Fairness Doctrine by analyzing the legal battles it has provoked.
