Conditional Support For "Fairness Doctrine"

I could (As a conservative and strict constitutionlist) bring myself to support a First Amendment violating "Fairness Doctrine" if, and only if the following conditions are first met:
1. That the broadcast media part of this process be first tried out, for a minimum of three years on NPR and all publicly owned broadcast operations which use the public airways; AND,
2. As newspapers use the public roads (Paid for by all tax payers) to distribute their editions, the editorials of all daily newspapers be subjected to the same three-year test---Before it is inflicted on magazines or "talk show radio"

Should I hold my breath for such conditions?
