Umm @soledadobrien question

#FoxNews #CNN & #MSNBC don't broadcast OTA using #FCC controlled radio spectrum

Do they still have need of an @FCC license?

I ask because Obscenity Rules yet HBO

@soledadobrien @FCC Those of us of a certain age can remember the earliest days when The Divine Miss M aired on HBO. It rattled people. It blew away #CommunityStandards to hear @BetteMidler use profanity. And her #NakedButt


@soledadobrien @FCC @BetteMidler Following the Superbowl presentation of Janet Jackson's Sun Medallion Embraced Nipple (One had to look hard to see nipple in replay)
#Slate did a piece about a #NewRegime at the #FCC
But it suggested there could only be a limit on Satellite broadcast

@soledadobrien @FCC @BetteMidler It seems there has been much evasion around the limits of the #FCC in controlling broadcasting content that does not include the traditional OTA spectrum. We see an occasional butt or tit flash, but there are content based rules that allow such

@soledadobrien @FCC @BetteMidler There is discretion on the part of the #FCC to allow or not certain content.

But, to deliver content over a restricted, paid and or encrypted system where it is not available to everyone, does the #FCC reserve a right, or is it even allowed a right, to control & License?
