Review from the Left: The Right Frequency Does an Excellent Job Describing History and Impact of Fairness Doctrine
The left-leaning website Prairie Fire had nice things to say about The Right Frequency in a review from the left of a book about conservative talk radio.
The influence on the political landscape of Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and their long line of conservative predecessors is the subject of Lucas s book, which explores the history of talk radio in America. … Lucas leans heavily right in his assessment of commentators throughout radio history whose names H.V. Kaltenborn, Walter Winchell, Father Charles Coughlin, Fulton Lewis, Jr. Billy Hames Hargis, Joe Pyne, Bob Grant — may or may not ring a bell. … Lucas does an excellent job of describing the history and impact of the so-called Fairness Doctrine adopted as part of the 1934 Communications Act; but it was never really a law” but a rule adopted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
