The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is charged with regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. The FCC may penalize licensees for knowingly broadcasting false information.
As public trustees, broadcasters may not intentionally distort the news. Broadcasters are responsible for deciding what their stations present to the public. The FCC has stated publicly that “rigging or slanting the news is a most heinous act against the public interest.”
If you would like to contact the FCC, or file a complaint, the applicable information has been added to FNB.
