Mamet: Fairness Doctrine The End Of Free Speech

Writer/Director David Mamet, who last year had a political awakening, gives his thoughts on the Fairness Doctrine.

The great danger here, as in all government, is a default not to the rule of law, but to the administrative committee, acting - whether "good-willed" or not - in reference only to its own wisdom. This is the beginning of the tyranny of the police state. The government is not made of geniuses, it is not made of the wise. It is a natural and necessary adjunct of human life but it is made of politicians and bureaucrats.
