Contents The media cornucopia and its critics -- The unfairness doctrine -- Network socialism -- Neophobia -- Campaign-finance reform's war on political speech
Summary The rise of alternative media over the last 20 years has broken the liberal stranglehold over news and opinion outlets. The Left blames much of the Democratic Party's electoral woes on the influence of the new media's many vigorous conservative voices. Yet, instead of fighting back with ideas, today's liberals quietly and relentlessly work to smother this political discourse under a tangle of campaign-finance and media regulations
