        • Newcastle NSW Australia

          Why does the media glorify and reward the convicted drug dealer Shapelle Corby. The media doesn't realise the damage Shapelle was doing smuggling drugs, damages that drugs do to our children and yet the MEDIA would reward her.

          I TRULY BELIEVE THIS IS COMPLETELY WRONG AND SHOULD BE DISCOURAGE. THE MEDIA IS GIVING THE MESSAGE TO THE SOCIETY THAT IF YOU DO WRONG WE WILL REWARD YOU.

                • Gray, Georgia

                  The local newspaper in Gray, Georgia which is a town with less than 5,000 residents, refuses to remove public arrest records from its online version even after notifying residents that the paper's policy is for removal after 6 weeks.

                  This newspaper's outright refusal to comply with its own policies is an abuse of Freedom of the Press and Reporter's Privilege. The owner's sole purpose for keeping these records online for longer than 6 weeks is to embarrass and defame, and this should be against the law.

                    • Mozelle, KY

                      I have Dish Satellite tv. I live in Kentucky, but my 'local' stations are from Tennessee. Now, Tennessee news is interesting up to a point, but not what I want to see or hear. The satellite reception is good, but I don't receive local news or weather. The Tennessee stations do not give weather for my location and do not follow severe weather warnings and watches. This can be critical in some incidents when high water or ice storms are imminent. If it is the law that I receive these stations, then why are they not required to give me…

                      • Havana, Illinois

                        There is nothing new about broadband in rural America. FCC should recognize most of America is rural. I think if a company can provide 100T to Paris and London it should also be able to adequately serve the rural areas it pretends to serve. I know of two small communities outside of the last mile that have no landline, no cable, and no cell tower in range.

                        Companies say this a business decision. I say it a travesty to not be able to call 911 from home.

                        • Havana, Illinois

                          I live in a rural county dominated by crop and cattle. Our Internet is a duopoly of phone companies. One sells cable and VOIP the other sells DSL and landline.. Both are expensive. If service was superior the cost would be tolerable. it isn't but we have no choice as there is no competition.

                          I live in a location that cannot receive the local radio. My solution was to purchase the NPR Livio Radio. It gives me all the access I need to news. The balance i can read in a local and regional papers.

                                Dear FCC, I am writing you in response to the upcoming renewal of the broadcasting liscense for 105.3 “The Fan” radio station in Dallas, Texas. I understand that the public is encouraged to voice concerns about the station to the FCC prior to the renewal of their liscense. I am writing to inform you that this station, like many talk radio stations in this country, discriminates against the hiring of young African-American broadcasters.
                                Like many talk radio stations, they’ve tried to mask their hiring agenda by only hiring African-Americans that only cary a specific stature such as former athletes or…

                                    We are a very rural community that is located on Lake Gaston. We are having major issues with our long distance and wireless calls coming in. Our community is full of locally owned businesses that survive solely through communicating with our customers on the telephone. As a matter of fact, during this time of the year 80% of our business is from telephone calls. Since, Bracey borders the Virginia and North Carolina state line 3/4 of our customers are from North Carolina. We have filed complaints with everyone we know to complain to. Something has got to be done with…

                                      I don't have much to say but needless to say.....Cox communications is the only provider we have in majority of South Louisiana and we have no other providers to choose from so Cox is raping us and hitting us all over the head with their ridiculous charges and of course they don't have to offer competitive prices because they have no COMPETITION. Again, if the FCC would step in regulate this monopoly, I think Cox would definitely be a more economical and cost effective service provider and realize that they do have competition because in other major metropolitan areas, there…

                                        Nothing works with any of these companies for actions of NOT allowing people like myself to get on air and VOICE truth truth which is TRUTH everybody must and needs to know. This needs to change because i believe people that wants to know deserves to know the accurate truth broadcasted globally.

                                        • Steele, Mo 63877

                                          The only local news I receive are Memphis,Tn. stations. I have Dish satellite and have spoken with them and they say it is FCC regulations. I have bought a digital antenna but the Cape Girardeau,Mo. KFVS-12 station is to far to get a reliable signal. Are any other options available?
