Milwaukee WITI FOX-TV station apparently violated the existing federal law for NOT providing equal time to Deaf Bilingual Coalition (DBC) last weekend to offer the opposing viewpoints on controversial issues regarding the options for language acquisitions among deaf babies and youngsters with cochlear implant (CI).
The Fairness Doctrine law created by the U.S. Congress to require the licensed broadcasting industry to offer opposing viewpoints on controversial issues without appeared biased toward anyone or favor particular individual or group.
Why the new AGBell president, Jay Wyant, solely appeared on the Milwaukee WITI FOX News' Health Center segment without someone from the DBC to offer the counterargument on the ongoing controversy on the educational method and language acquisition and development?
Please check out the AGBell website - http://www.agbell.org/ for viewing the video clip from the WITI FOX-TV station and see for yourself for new AGBell President's first television interview.
SHAME on AGBELL for not providing any kind of transcript or captions for its own members and general public on her website regarding the exclusive clip of new AGBell President's television interview! Many AGBell members and parents of deaf youngsters do use the television captions to keep abreast of any current events and news within the society at large.
To understand the Fairness Doctrine much better. Please check out any ISP- Google and Yahoo and spell out Fairness Doctrine. The Wikipedia site have an excellent description and summary of the Fairness Doctrine.
