He’s making a general point about government’s responsibility to oversee the public airwaves. If you’re willing to concede that they have the power and duty to keep one type of material off the air in the interest of the common good, then at least theoretically you’re willing to extend that principle to other types — like, say, political speech, to ensure “balance.”
This clip’s an even better turnout motivator than the Ayers clip, isn’t it?
At least he’s only talking only about the public airwaves, not cable or the Internet. I think.
