Senator Bernie Sanders
U.S. Senate
Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Senator Sanders:

Your appearance at the so-called “media reform” conference, where you called for the use of the fairness doctrine against conservatives in the media, was a disgrace. It is now clear that your “socialist” approach to public policy includes government control of media that you object to. Would you please explain to me how your approach differs from that of the old Soviet Union, where the Communist Party dictated coverage of current events and news and information?
