  •  You don't understand the FCC (0+ / 0-)

    This doctrine and the Fairness Doctrine came at a time when radio pretty much had a monopoly on news and information. The purpose of these doctrines were to make so that there isn't an advantage in exposure due to the fact there were less channels. Since many platforms and channels are open, it can be argued that their isn't a monopoly on wide exposure through media.

    Like I said, you could try but I don't see this getting anywhere.

    In terms of the FCC they are for regulating media and not really concerned with the public at large. In addition, if you don't think that Congress and the broadcast media industry wouldn't want to apply the rules to everybody equally, you're mistaken.
