FCC's distortion news policy dichotomy
The policy for combating news distortion requires insider knowledge of the event. Without an actual rule in place, the FCC's policy offers no whistle-blower's protections, yet requires a whistle-blower to file the distortion complant.
Jane Aker filed a complant against Fox, and lost the appeal due to FCC's lack of clear policy concerning news distortion. The FCC has been sued many times for this lack of clearity, both of content and enforcement, and has lost. It is time the populus is protected, not the corporations. Solidify in to rules the basis for the distortion policy, provide the protections the whistle-blowers need, help them maintain their jurnalistic ethical commitment.
