For August 5, 2007.  Twenty years ago today, the FCC enacted new regulations which spelled the end of the Fairness Doctrine as it had existed for almost 40 years.  I discuss the reasoning behind the Fairness Doctrine, the reasoning behind why it was killed, and my perceptions of the effect this has had on both broadcasting and public life in the United States.

Today's episode music is from "Fallen Angel," by DJ Topshelf.  Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
