Video: Megyn Kelly punks Bill Press on Fairness Doctrine

posted at 2:35 pm on February 16, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

We got a lot of e-mail about the confrontation between Megyn Kelly and longtime libtalker Bill Press over the Fairness Doctrine, and for good reason. Watch as Bill Press tried to explain Air America’s failure as “running out of money” but avoids Kelly’s conclusion that failing to get listeners was the cause of the cash drought:

“Where they want it, [liberal radio] succeeds, and where they don’t, it doesn’t.” That seems clear enough to everyone except Press, who responds by naming a list of markets where people don’t support libtalkers. He complains twice about the death of libtalking Obama 1260 in DC without mentioning the fact that its ratings were so low it took a microscope to find its listeners. In fact, Obama 1260 carried the entire list of libtalkers Press names as examples of brilliant voices silenced by an evil conspiracy of conservative radio station owners, and the station owner dumped the format because he couldn’t sell their air time to advertisers.

Second biggest laugh: Press won’t apply the Fairness Doctrine to NPR. He wants government dictating content to commercial radio stations, but not to government-subsidized radio stations. Huh?

Biggest laugh: Press says he doesn’t want the Fairness Doctrine, but the “Fair and Balanced Doctrine”. That’s why libtalker marketing needs government intervention to survive. I’ll stick with the free market, thank you.

If the “Fairness Doctrine” is introduced I don’t suppose we can assume that it will be soon implemented in the newspapers or TV either (not that I want that either).

Crazy.

First off Megyn Kelly is a gifted lawyer as well as being one of the finest Anchors on Cable News. Ms. kelly ripped Bill Press to shreads as he failed to make any coherant argument otherwise.
We should welcome these battles being waged by the left, the more they over reach the more they will suffer in 2010.
Bottom line any radio show that can find an audience,get sponsors and make profits for their respective stations will do so no matter what ideology is being broadcasted.
The first things that Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and Daniel Ortega did when they got power was to eliminate any opposition being put out by media. If Obama wants to go down this road he will further embolden those of us who believe its about free speech and free markets.
Obama doesn’t like it when he gets called a Socialist. By Obama using the FCC and Liberals in Congress to stifle any Media opposition will help to bring to light his appraent Socialist Agenda

GEEVEE50 on February 16, 2009 at 8:21 PM

It’s Fox, go figure on them wanting to be a right-wing mouthpiece. I heard this and it hardly was anything close to being a “punked” moment. She couldn’t accept whatever his answer about the airwaves, so she tried to cut him off. She’s just a bad imitation of O’Reilly in a different package.

How long until this lady asks for Fox viewers to spam a competitor ala O’Reilly?

sethstorm on February 16, 2009 at 6:22 PM

You mean as opposed to the left-wing mouthpieces on CNN and MSNBC? Criticizing Megyn Kelly doesn’t make up for Press’s answers and non-answers. Suppose you fill us in. Should NPR be subject to the FD? Should CNN? The NYT? Why not?

Press won’t apply the Fairness Doctrine to NPR. He wants government dictating content to commercial radio stations, but not to government-subsidized radio stations. Huh?

Why is that, sethstorm? Are you going to tell me that NPR is the very model of “fairness” already?

Go Megan. Love the banter…

daverenkel on February 16, 2009 at 8:56 PM

Forgive me if this has been stated already.

Press kept arguing that by accepting the broadcast license, the station was to operate “in the public interest.” He cited the lib bastions where there is an audience for their viewpoint.

What should be used to counter that is the county by county red/blue map. If you look at that map, I’d say the airwaves reflect what is of interest to the public.

TugboatPhil on February 16, 2009 at 8:59 PM

Bill Press is an idiot! He doesn’t understand the free market. When Kelly tried to tell him that the free market controls where radio is successful and not government, he tried to argue that there are plenty of places where “progressive” (leftists HATE the word “liberal”) radio is popular, i.e., Chicago, Seattle, etc. He doesn’t know that the free market determined the popularity of those radio markets! What a friggin’ idiot!

Listening to it, that’s about all she did.

As for the NPR bit, you can always put them on in the middle of the night. They are on, just not when most in the US are awake. Thus it would be no problem to apply it to NPR should they be asked to provide time.

That’s not “fairness”. I want to hear Mark Steyn on there as much as Daniel Schorr (who must be about 124 years old now). If conservatives have a problem with the slant of NPR reporting, I want them to be given equal time in the regular broadcast day, not in the middle of the night. I want to see every NYT editorial by Frank Rich countered by Ann Coulter. I want to see every column or article by Joe Klein countered by Victor Davis Hanson. You want fairness, we can have fairness.

ddrintn on February 16, 2009 at 10:01 PM

This is Press attempting to get Barama to force what the market has already rejected – the Bill Press Show. What a douchebag.

Bill “Pressed” his luck with Megyn…AND STOPPED AT A WHAMMY! Keep your eye on the 3rd Whammy in this video.

This UNFAIRNESS Doctrine is nothing more than the fascist enabler media’s attempt to TRULY take over all the corporate media. They would do so by censorship and government control.

BobAnthony on February 16, 2009 at 10:20 PM

How about the progressive liberal shows get a single “seed” station in each city and leave the other stations alone. If there is demand, there will be growth, and if not, the lack of interest will be self-evident. The libs can yak all day long to no audience.

cando333 on February 16, 2009 at 11:00 PM

The strongest argument for the “Fairness Doctrine” is that the public airwaves should be managed for the public good, and should not one-sided. Proponents miss the point that the free market is what decides what shows are carried, and there is certainly no lack of other forms of media giving the opposing opinion.

Nevertheless, can someone explain to me why these people think that broadcast radio should be subject to the “Fairness Doctrine”, but that broadcast tv should not.

Say for the sake of argument that we all agree with this idea of the “Fairness Doctrine”, that anything that goes out over the public airwaves should be somewhat balanced.

The NY Times, CNN, and Internet blogs are not publicly owned airwaves. The Fairness Doctrine as it used to be in place would not touch them.

But CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, etc. all broadcast over public airwaves. Why shouldn’t Charlie Gibson have to give up half his show to Brit Hume? Why shouldn’t Katie Couric have to share the anchor’s chair with Megyn Kelly? Why shouldn’t 30% of the reporters at NBC have to be members of the Republican party, 30% Democrats, and 30% Independents (instead of 90% Democrats)?

And what about NPR, who is completely publicly OWNED?! Why shouldn’t Bill Press have to co-host with Rush Limbaugh?

willamettevalley on February 17, 2009 at 12:22 AM

I’ll admit MSNBC is liberal if you people will admit Fox is conservative……….didn’t think so.

athensboy on February 16, 2009 at 3:25 PM

Oh, you don’t have to admit anything. We already know MSNBC is liberal; we don’t need any admissions to validate that.

My favorite kind of music is Christian 80′s New Wave and Punk (DA, One Bad Pig, Steve Taylor, Scattered Few, 77′s, Adam Again, etc…)

I don’t know if there are ANY radio stations that play these. There certainly aren’t in the Seattle/Tacoma area.

The music radio stations aren’t, according to Mr. Press, operating in my “public interest.” They need to be forced to play my kind of music or none at all.

29Victor on February 17, 2009 at 1:11 AM

She asked him about NPR and he said no, no, we are talking about public airways… uh.. WE pay for PBS and NPR — how much more public can you get? So, yes if they do this then NPR and PBS should have to carry conservatives.

Rapunzel on February 17, 2009 at 2:06 AM

Megan is so hot that it takes me several replays of my tivo to actually listen to what she is saying. Fox news has to start hiring more babes that look like Helen Thomas in order to get me focus on the message.

Lets be honest the politicians in Washington do not want an informed public. So they need to kill talk radio. It makes information availible to those of us who are willing to voice our opinion. Shut off the information, Shut off the opposition. Its a basic communist strategy. I don’t care if they have an R or a D beside their name. Pay attention to those who are crying for the return of the fairness doctorine. Those people have something to hide. No press,No exposure.

Lest we forget, this will effect more than just political speech.

Christian talk radio will have to have gays, muslims, atheist on too.

Mercy4Me on February 17, 2009 at 8:24 AM

This is the straw that will break the camel’s back. I cannot believe that Americans will sit back while “content” on a radio station (or anywhere) is dictated. If Americans will, in fact, blindly accept this censorship, then all is lost.

Politically, I cannot imagine that the 0 administration wants to go there. I think that they are floating the idea (via Press, Stabenow, and others) and will watch for public reaction.

I say we better give them a strong, loud angry reaction or they will proceed as planned.

Conservatives are DEAD if this BS is allowed. We either grow a set and march and demonstrate and get vocal or we lose The Constitution of the US… First talk radio, then guns… This is not a wack job right wing fanatic ranting, it’s happening RIGHT NOW!

This guy Press seems to think there is somebody keeping liberal blather off the air – unfairly- and can’t see the reality as megyn makes so clear that where there is a demand it makes it and where not, the FREE MARKET causes it to fail. Just let “the government” decide where theres a market I guess is what he and his ilk would like to see?

When Fairness Doctrine 2.0 passes does that mean I will be required to listen to ‘X’ amount of hours of ‘Progressive’ radio for every ‘X’ amount of hours I listen to ‘Conservative’ radio? Maybe I can hire someone to do this for me? That would generate a lot of new jobs.

All right, then, which portions of Megyn’s points were BS? It’s a fact that liberal talk radio has failed in several places. Even in far-left Austin, Air America was lucky to pull a 0.5 rating; it’s long gone here now.

The portions in which she didn’t care about the answer, but cut him off in mid-sentence. Wouldn’t mind seeing her on the other end of that kind of exchange, the end unable to “press button to remove dissent”.

The part where NPR was introduced would be a good point to start.

sethstorm on February 17, 2009 at 11:10 AM

Whenever these “progressives” said its in the “public interest”, they sound like the fascists of the 20′s and 30′s. Besides, who said government knows whats in your best interest?

Libertarian Joseph on February 17, 2009 at 11:36 AM

Mr. Press brought a knife and Ms. Kelly brought a bazooka. She wiped the floor with the guy. That felt like an amateur player going against an all-star. What I don’t understand is how the logic of not changing NPR is OK but censoring commercial stations is just fine. Arguments like this show what the “fairness” doctrine is all about.

txaggie on February 17, 2009 at 11:42 AM

Megyn’s a cute gal and I like her on The Factor, but I don’t think she did her best work here. The Fairness Doctrine is a target rich environment with such great conservative winning points that there’s no need to
cut off anyone’s answers.

Press’s arguments were the same weak ones we’ve heard from the start. The left’s agenda is so obvious it stinks.

Ernest on February 17, 2009 at 11:51 AM

She was dealing with a child who obviously has zero concept of the free market. Like most of you. There is no debate. Liberal..errr..progressive talk radio failed in MOST, but not ALL markets. End of debate. Nothing else to talk about. For him to keep whining that it is not true is no different than him holding his breath until he passes out. That is why he was getting cut off.

I’ve finally watched this clip and wish that I hadn’t. This complete arsehole has proven Megans’s point over and over again HE is the one NOT listening. Who cares if the license if free? Regional markets decide who to air based on advertising revenue. Lib radio is alive in the markets that want it. It has failed in the markets that didn’t want it. Bonehead here refuses to acknowledge that fact.

I just wish that Megan would have brought up the woefully unfair ratio of liberal television and print media properties.

cannonball on February 17, 2009 at 12:37 PM

Has anyone checked out the Bill Press website to see how his poll about the stimulus is going?

cannonball on February 17, 2009 at 12:38 PM

That guy keep proving Megan’s point over and over again — yet he’s too dumb (or more likely simply refuses) to realize it.

And he also says he doesn’t want Government running the stations – but with the ‘fairness doctrine’ that is exactly what will be going on.

I wonder if he would like the ‘Fair and Balanced’ doctrine to be applied to NPR (also supposed to operate in the ‘public interest’ or the network news (also supposed to operate int he ‘public interest’). Funny how he leaves those out.

CrazyFool on February 17, 2009 at 12:49 PM

Here’s what I love about this clip. Press says the Portland, Oregon has seen a huge success in progressive talk. And he’s right. But then he turns around and says companies are attempting to suppress liberal talk.

Does Press know who owns the liberal station (KPOJ) in Portland? It happens to be Clear Channel, the same people who own the conservative station in Portland. They also happen to own more radio stations than any other company in the country. Clearly they’re not attempting to silence liberal talk radio.

TheCurrent on February 17, 2009 at 1:13 PM

Pardonme but this so called “fairness doctrine” assumes that it will bring about something that is FAIR. Has anyone else ever questioned this word FAIR? Can it be defined in a manner that is acceptable to all? Perhaps our esteemed politicians who use the word so freely on the floor of the House and Senate can once and for all define FAIR and give it legal force so that when FAIR is used in a discussion it will be unassailable. While you are at it please also provide a definition for the word EQUAL so that it is also unquestionable.

Pardonme on February 17, 2009 at 2:01 PM

As opposed to the unbelievably fair MSNBC and CNN stations who never interrupt people and give all sides a change to voice their opinion?

txaggie on February 17, 2009 at 3:33 PM

Cable and newspapers wouldn’t come under purview of anything like that because they are private enterprise, and do not need any stupid federal license.

The only reason they can wrap their hands around broadcast radio and tv is that the FCC owns the airwaves.

The internet is kind of on the fence, currently on the side of newspapers and cable, but if say DSL lines get nationalized they can push for it.

kerncon on February 17, 2009 at 4:37 PM

TV stations have the same “public interest” character as radio stations, so let’s insist on “fair and balanced” programming on network television; we evaluate the political spin of prime time TV dramas, and if there’s too much liberal spin (as there always will be) we insist on conservative script writers. Same with the Internet: if the hits on Daily Kos and Huffpo exceed those of conservative sites, let’s insist that they carry conservative opinions equal time.

Of course, they’ll never agree to it, but that’s because the arguments they’re raising are flat-out lies. They’re doing this to silence Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Quinn and Rose, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, etc. But if they start seriously planning “equal time” for radio, I’m going to start ratcheting up “equal time” for TV and the internet, really, really loudly.

philwynk on February 17, 2009 at 5:46 PM

I just got around to watching this video…Megyn sooooo cleaned his clock.

What a freakin’ doofus!

ladyingray on February 17, 2009 at 7:15 PM

A good remedy for this would be for Rush and Hannity etc to buy up Satellite radio and move their programs there. I hear that Satellite is doing poorly so they could probably get a good deal. Not only would this be an excellent way to protect our 1st amendment rights but would be out of the reach of the Libs. I would be more than happy to go out and buy one of Satellite radios if it screwed over the Dems plan to infringe on my rights.

SGinNC on February 17, 2009 at 8:49 PM

Why is NPR supposed to be treated or considered differently? My God, how many NPR stations are there? Press wants to make some distinction about commercial radio and just keep blinders on a about taxpayer funded public radio.
And the fact that radio stations don’t pay anything for the frequencies that they are assigned gets under his craw. Never mind that there have never been fees charged for spots on the radio dial. It just burns his ass that something goes untaxed.
What a loathsome tool.

thegreatbeast on February 17, 2009 at 9:25 PM

Conservative radio works because it has an audience….Americans at work.

Liberal radio doesn’t work because it’s potential audience is split between “The View”, MTV, BET, Oprah and the Cartoon Network.
