FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell raised that as a possibility after talking
with bloggers at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. McDowell spoke
about a recent FCC vote to bar Comcast from engaging in certain Internet
practices - expanding the federal agency's oversight of Internet networks.

McDowell told BMI the Fairness Doctrine isn't currently on the FCC's radar.
But a new administration and Congress elected in 2008 might renew Fairness
Doctrine efforts, but under another name.

"The Fairness Doctrine has not been raised at the FCC, but the importance of
this election is in part - has something to do with that," McDowell said.
"So you know, this election, if it goes one way, we could see a
re-imposition of the Fairness Doctrine. There is a discussion of it in
Congress. I think it won't be called the Fairness Doctrine by folks who are
promoting it. I think it will be called something else and I think it'll be
intertwined into the net neutrality debate."
