The "fairness doctrine" is a long-standing policy which requires broadcasters who present one side of a controversial issue to provide an opportunity for presentation of conflicting views as well. The FCC has proposed that broadcasters be required not only to announce the availability of such opportunities on the air but actively to seek out opposition spokesmen and offer them a chance at rebuttal. The broadcaster himself could choose to present the conflicting view, the FCC said, but he is not required to do so. USE TRIBUNE WANT ADS ssence of Springtime.
