The fairness doctrine forces broadcast media to give both sides equal airtime; in length and quality.
he Fairness Doctrine had two basic elements: It required broadcasters to devote some of their airtime to discussing controversial matters of [ public interest, and to air contrasting views regarding those matters. Stations were given wide latitude as to how to provide contrasting views: It
