    Yeah, that explains why FOX is so timid in the face of FCC control.

    That's a much different issue. The FCC doesn't give monetary support to broadcasters, it regulates them. This issue is about the federal government providing money to failing media outlets.

    Someone obviously is unable to comprehend the issue at hand. I suggest you cease posting on this issue, lest you look more ignorant.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    News-gathering is a public service?...

    Further proof that there is no limit to how far Progressives will go to control a nation.

    How about you engage in debate instead of being a troll? Explain what the issue is at hand. Or maybe I have a new issue to add.

    In one relationship financial assistance is given to an entity.

    In the other, guidelines and standards are given to an entity.

    You are ignoring the relevant issue, of Government funding, directing, and "saving" media and bringing irrelevancies. I am not being a troll, I am marginalizing your points as they well should be.

    Are you serious? You don't see a difference between the implications of government paying for a select group of media outlets and FCC regulation of all media outlets?

    so the troll accusation is an excuse for censorship around here. that doesn't seem to jive with the spirit of libertarianism, now does it?
