BRING ON the fairness doctrine.

That's precisely what op-ed columnist Fatimah Ali would wish for. What she can not bring herself to accept is that the reason Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Michael Savage and other conservative talk-show hosts are so popular is that some of us on the right must have a forum for our views and beliefs.

Most of the newspapers around the country as well as most major TV stations have a decidedly liberal bias. Therefore, we must turn to these voices of conservative ideas to bring fair and balanced news reporting.

Ali must further come to the realization that the reason liberal radio stations are so few is that few were listening. Thus no revenue for the station!

Ali might wish with all her heart to silence the likes of Rush Limbaugh, but we as conservatives will raise our voices even louder so that we will be heard.

We will not be silenced!
