The article reports on the preparation of Republican lawmakers to fight anticipated Democratic efforts in reviving rules requiring stations to balance conservative hosts in the U.S. The conservatives fear that forcing stations to make equal time for liberal talk would reduce profits resulting in radio executives to return to conservative programs. The Democratic leaders want to revive the Fairness Doctrine which requires broadcasters to deliver opposing views on controversial political issues.
