It is your LOCAL NETWORK NEWS STATION that holds the license, not the NBC Nightly News, not the CBS Evening News, nor the ABC World News Tonight. They don’t even have to be licensed.

So just what is your local broadcaster responsible for?

As public trustees, broadcasters, your local NBC, CBS, and ABC, News stations, may not intentionally distort the news. The FCC has stated publicly that “rigging or slanting the news is a most heinous act against the public interest.” The FCC can act to protect the public interest when it has received documented evidence, such as testimony from persons who have direct personal knowledge of an intentional falsification of the news. Without such documented evidence, the FCC generally cannot intervene.

What if I have comments or concerns about a specific news broadcast or commentary?

All concerns or comments about a specific news broadcast or commentary should be directed to the local station so that the people responsible on the local level, for making the programming decisions, can become better informed about audience opinion. Additionally, they can exert tremendous pressure on the news shows such as the nightly news that they broadcast on their frequencies.

So it is the Local ABC, NBC, and CBS stations in our community the must police the FAKE NEWS?

Yes, they are the ones that stand to lose their FCC Broadcast license if found allowing slanted news, if found be allowing FAKE NEWS to be broadcast on their frequencies!
