"As liberals love to remind us, broadcasters make their living over “public airwaves.”
The majority of the garbage televised by the Leftstream Media is done, not over "public airwaves", but over private services, delivered by cable or fiber optic line or by encoded satellite transmission, and in each case under individual contract on a fee-for-service basis. These media are not part of a public trust, any more than the Internet is part of a public trust.
In other words, ABC, CBS, and NBC are different birds than CNN, MSNBC, or Fox News. Such prevaricators as Drama Queen Matthews, Lawrence O'Dumbo, Ed Schmuck, Rachel Maddog, and Apostate Al Sharpton aren't subject to any manner of regulation.
