Obama hints at Fairness Doctrine on Sunday shows

The Astute Blogger features this quote by President Obama from his marathon rounds on today’s news programs, and feels this is code to suggest that regulations are on the way:

“I do think part of what’s different today is that the 24-hour news cycle — and cable television and blogs and all this — they focus on the most extreme elements on both sides. They can’t get enough of conflict. It’s catnip to the media right now. And, so, the easiest way to get 15 minutes of fame is to be rude to somebody. In that environment, I think it makes it more difficult for us to solve the problems that the American people want us to solve.”
