FCC Monitors Media

(image) In the face of a major backlash, the FCC has retreated from investigating media bias. The plan which was introduced in May 2013 has only recently garnered attention. Fear over media censorship and the implications of a government agency interfering in journalism sparked the concern of at least 16 House Republicans, who directly addressed a letter to the FCC.

The FCC released a statement on the matter claiming, "Any suggestion that the FCC intends to regulate the speech of news media or plans to put monitors in America's newsrooms is false."
