Life isn't fair.

George Will is, well, hilarious in his op-ed today about the Fairness Doctrine. Quoth Will:

"Because liberals have been even less successful in competing with conservatives on talk radio than Detroit has been in competing with its rivals, liberals are seeking intellectual protectionism in the form of regulations that suppress ideological rivals."

The phenomenon of conservative talk radio is a fascinating one -- and one that I'll likely discuss in the future (when my life isn't consumed by final papers). For those who are interested, however, see Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Joe Cappella's The Echo Chamber, for an interesting analysis on that same subject.
