ABSTRACT
The article reports on the legislative petition of U.S. House Republicans that protects the conservative radio talk-show hosts. The initiative was undertaken after the Democrats accused host Rush Limbaugh of disparaging the American troops as phony soldiers in the Iraq war. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin expresses that broadcasters should give both sides of the issues to the public, which is essential in making informed decision.
