9. I think shutting down RCTV was a bad move but
what would we all want if (hypothetical)in 2009 during a fascist coup against the Obama government, FoxNews initially covered Bush's return to power and then subsequently played Tom and Jerry cartoons instead of covering Obama's restoration to power?

Would any of us think that extending Fox's license served the public good?

Because if you think that would be unacceptable, thats exactly what RCTV did during the 2002 coup.
