31. Not Complaining
I'm just telling you the facts and this fallacy that we somehow own the airwaves just isn't true! Remember when Clear Channel banned The Dixie Chicks from all their CW stations? What good did the FCC do during the Bush years? Unless they get bombarded like they did when Powell Jr, was going to again loosen rules on ownership, they backed off.

Clinton let Clear Channel go from owning 80 stations to 1200.

The FCC is a worthless agency for the consumer, all the do is grant licenses to gigantic media corporations.
