Religious broadcasters have major concerns about the new Obama Administration, warning members they see a possible return of the fairness doctrine, hate crimes legislation and other potential game changers. While the National Religious Broadcasters said it supported recently-introduced bills to block reimposition of the doctrine, it also said in an announcement Monday that it was prepared to go to court, lobby Congress, or take its message to the public, which would suggest the electronic pulpit. Sounding a little like David preparing for Goliath, the NRB said that it was "girding itself for a major battle over broadcasting freedoms."
