It all started when I wrote a column criticizing the conservative advocacy group for its decision to actively support the Sun News Network's application for a "mandatory carriage" license. My point was that such support runs counter to the NCC's stated conservative principles.

To me, it's obvious: forcing citizens to pay for a TV channel they may not want to watch violates an individual's right to free choice. Conservatives are supposed to support free choice.

At any rate, a few hours after my column appeared, NCC director Stephen Taylor responded to my argument with a well-reasoned, thoughtful defence of his group's action.

Ha, just kidding! What Taylor really did was go on Twitter and lob personal insults my way.
