NEWSMAX The Fairness Doctrine, which the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) implemented in 1949 to require broadcasters to present both sides of controversial issues, became less relevant as cable TV exploded in the 1980s.

BURTON FOLSOM, JR. The Great Depression dominated the 1930s, in large part because President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs failed to create jobs.

We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work"... (more)

Blacks are discovering that what a man or woman does is what matters, not the color of his or her skin.

But blacks themselves have been the ones having the hardest time letting it go... (more)
