Why aren't there more conspiracies about the FCC?

The FCC basically is at fault for letting the media be owned by 8 major corporations. Their rule give existing cable companies a monopoly and they cut off non cable companies from exercising their opinions or showing their programs on television itself. You don't believe me? Just take a look at their own website.


Before commencing operation, a cable system operator must send the following information to the Secretary of the Commission for each community to be served:

(1) The legal name of the operator, the entity identification or social security number, and whether the operator is an individual, private association, partnership or corporation. If the operator is a partnership, the legal name of the partner responsible for communications with the Commission;

(2) The assumed name (if any) used for doing business in the community;

(3) The mailing address, including zip code, and the telephone number to which all communications are to be directed;

(4) The date the system provided services to 50 or more subscribers;

(In order to comply with the requirements relating to aeronautical frequency usage, a system must register in advance of providing service to any subscribers, so that a subsequent aeronautical notification may be timely filed pursuant to § 76.615(b)).

(5) The name of the community or area served and the county in which it is located;

(6) The television broadcast signals to be carried;

(7) A certification that the applicant is not subject to a denial of federal benefits pursuant to Section 5301 of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, 21 U.S.C., 853a, or, in the case of a non-individual applicant (for instance, a corporation, partnership, or other unincorporated association), that no party to the application is subject to a denial of federal benefits pursuant to that section; and

(8) For a cable system (or an employment unit) with six or more full-time employees, a statement of the proposed community unit's equal employment opportunity program, unless such program has previously been filed for the community unit or is not required to be filed based on an anticipated number if fewer than six full-time employees.

A registration statement must be signed by an authorized representative of the cable television company. The Commission issues a public notice setting forth the details of each registration statement as it is received. The cable television operator is not required to serve the registration statement on any party and may begin operation immediately upon filing the registration statement. However, commencement of operation is entirely at the risk of the system operator. If violations of the rules are subsequently discovered, appropriate regulatory sanctions, including imposition of a monetary forfeiture and/or the issuance of a cease and/or desist order, may be employed.

I was just thinking about how the FCC controls the airwaves. If the media is in the current state it is in- it is that the FCC prevented other competition from joining the ranks of the media conglomerates and kept them from being nationally syndicated channels.

Why isn't the FCC more frequently discussed around these pats? I would think that for a website that seems to be so critical of the mainstream media that at the very least there would be more discussion around this site- and other conspiracy sites about the people who got them to where they are.

Same reason why there are not more conspiracies about the Dept of Justice and FBI. because each head of these bureaucracies are appointed by executive branch to do their bidding. Anyone who does not play along is fired.
