Fred 'Gets It'

One of the reasons I like Fred Thompson as a possible President is that he 'gets it'. He understands the potential and influence of the internet and it's social implications. So far he is using it with mastery.

The June 29th piece about the Fairness Doctrine is on the money:

"I understand how the left feels though. For most of my life, the big broadcast television networks and almost all the major newspapers and magazines presented only one side of a lot of issues. Talk radio is a relatively small part of a bigger media picture, but I imagine it aggravates the new congressional majority to hear their opposition’s arguments without the old filters. "
