Fact of the Day: Fairness Doctrine

The Fairness Doctrine was a U.S. law that required any major news station and journalist to present controversial issues in a manner that was suppose to be honest, balanced, and equitable. The Fairness Doctrine was eliminated in 1987 under President Ronald Reagan.
