As I reported  on the main site today, conservative media figures’ fears that the left will use Tucson to clamp down on them are not entirely unfounded.
Rep. Jim Clyburn  wants to bring back the Fairness Doctrine  – a move aimed directly at talk radio – while Media Matters CEO David Brock asked Rupert Murdoch to rein in or possibly even fire Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin.
It’s hard not to read today’s news  that Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee plans to ban state employees from appearing on talk radio during work hours within the same frame, though Ben Smith points out  that likely has more to do with local beef than the current national debate about “tone.”
