I agree with William H. Corken (12/23, Letters) that the Fairness Doctrine is a bad idea. The Obama administration will have far too much to occupy them, though, thanks to Mr. Bush and friends.
However, the more rigid talk radio hosts such as Rush Limbaugh (who is already hoping Obama will fail) could be a little more diplomatic. These are, after all, the same people who thought the liberal commentators were too critical of Bush.
If it is the office that deserves respect, Obama deserves it until he screws up.
