Give the government the power to crack down on the news?
Pardon me, but what do you think the FCC does?
No rush. I'll wait.

I must admit that your clever response has caused me a great deal of anguish now that I know the FCC punishes news broadcasters for factual inaccuracies. I have a question though, could you cite a case or a regulation or a law that says this?
To answer your question I think the FCC does the following:
Regulates telephone companies that provide interstage service, regulate cable companies in conjunction with cities, allocate spectrum, develop telecomm policy and regulate broadcasters. I was unaware that ancillary to the FCC's authoirty over broadcasters that they regulated the news. Help me out with a cite wouldn't you?
