Ahead of the vote, we take a look at the transparency controversies surrounding Trump’s Federal Communications Commission and how FOIA requesters are contributing oversight.
A FOIA request to the Federal Communications Commission reveals that conservatives really do not like when comedian and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel talks about politics.
A request for FCC complaints for InfoWars turned up a handful of indignant Alex Jones fans furious that their fearless leader was so rudely disrespected by the hosts of other shows.
While outrage fueled FCC complaints are usually a source of glee for people who love to laugh at people who take things too seriously, some of the umbrage directed against Stephen Colbert for referring to President Trump’s mouth as a receptacle for the genitalia of Vladimir Putin made some good points.
There are a lot of stupid FCC complaints, but some of the stupidest are complaints about superhero and comic book TV shows. Things like a citizens crime-stopper group taking on the Flash for calling somebody a dick are too far-fetched to appear in a show with an evil mind-controlling gorilla, but that didn’t stop an Orlando based group from trying to do just that.
