Ohio Democratic Representative and perennial presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich has been named head of a new House Domestic Policy Subcommittee which will look at a reintroduction of the Fairness Doctrine.

The Fairness Doctrine reborn has long been a dream of many on the left since the rise of talk radio and the conservative dominance in the field.

It seems so odd that those who seem to champion the First Amendment the loudest are so supportive of a measure that is clearly anti-free speech. But seeing the contorting liberals go through in backing this measure, it becomes clear that they have successfully deluded themselves on an Orwellian level.

I’m just waiting for the slogan:

Free Speech is good, but Fair Speech is doubleplusgood.
