Fairness Doctrine - Liberal media

Today I sent an email to my local radio station asking for a time slot.  I shall see if I am allotted time on the station. I have asked in person and via snail mail. 

I asked for a slot on the new Urban radio station that broadcasts football games of the private academies created after Brown v. Topeka....  I live in a very conservative area, hence the name of my blog.  The media where I live is much the same as the rest of the United States, not liberal.  Reagan's elimination of the Fairness Doctrine allowed conservative media owners to change the narrative presented to the American people. The people here for the most part are under informed or choose not to engage with the local media because it is skewed against free thinking.

Please wish me well.  Although I have blogtalk radio, I wish to be able to reach the people in my area as well.  Many here do not have broadband or access to a computer.  Currently offline radio and print media still have value in this area when it comes to informing the population. 

I am also looking into my own station should I need be able to get a slot on the  existing airwaves. 

Regards,
Libby

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.
