22. The same FCC that took the Fairness Doctrine off the books a few months ago?
"The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission's view, honest, equitable and balanced. The FCC decided to eliminate the Doctrine in 1987, and in August 2011 the FCC formally removed the language that implemented the Doctrine."

Sorry, I think contacting them would be futile and believing otherwise is potentially dangerous.
