The biggest enemy of western people is not war or terrorism, it is their own governments lack of regulation of public health and safety. — Steven Magee

The Fcc Quotes By Russ Feingold

People whose terms go for five years or longer, like FCC commissioners. That's a higher standard. Then district judges, who are appointed for a lifetime but can be overruled. Then Court of Appeals judges. They're not the highest level, but they're almost the final word. And then, of course, the Supreme Court. — Russ Feingold

The Fcc Quotes By Marvin Ammori

Carl Bernsein, Bob Woodward — Carl Bernstein

by the FCC's own reckoning, the cable companies will soon enjoy an uncontested monopoly over broadband Internet in much of the United States beyond the East Coast, and they are also seeking control of more Hollywood studios and television networks. — Tim Wu

The Fcc Quotes By Seth MacFarlane

[With R-rated movie] you're not dealing with the restrictions imposed by the FCC. They're self-imposed. In a way, that does make it harder. You actually have to think about it, as opposed to just taking for granted that you're not going to be able to do this. — Seth MacFarlane

The Fcc Quotes By Glenn Beck

I'm the crazy one? This country has gone insane. Read about it. FCC orders NBC newsrooms to partner with Soros funded non-profits. That's how the deal went through. — Glenn Beck

The Fcc Quotes By Montel Williams

There was a time when the FCC tried to require a certain amount of television and media to be educational, a certain amount to be newsworthy and a certain amount of it to be public access. — Montel Williams

For years, my colleagues and I - primarily Republicans but also some Democrats - have introduced legislation and written to the FCC asking the commission to cease attempts to regulate the Internet unless given the clear authority to do so by Congress. — Mary Bono

The issues of wireless versus wireline gets very messy. And that's really an FCC issue, not a Google issue. — Eric Schmidt

We have FCC, abandoned alimony payments, assault and battery, Homeland Security escalation, and that's before we invite the IRS to take a walk on your wild side. — Ken Goldstein

The Fcc Quotes By Frank Zappa

Sometimes a radio station will get ONE phone call from ONE person who screams that he is going to complain to the FCC. Instead of the guy at the stating thinking about how many listeners love the song, want to hear it again, and will support the station for playing it, usually the guy panics
and takes my records off the air. I object that.
It has never mattered to me that thirty million people might think 'I'm wrong.' The number of people who thought Hitler was 'right' did not make him 'right.' The same principle should be applied to anyone who has an individualistic attitude. Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are? — Frank Zappa

The Fcc Quotes By Marvin Ammori

The FCC can't enforce press-statement principles without adopting official rules, and those rules must be based on the legal theory of reclassification. — Marvin Ammori

The Fcc Quotes By Colleen Hoover

Mom says the FCC is responsible for inventing cuss words just for media shock value. She says if everyone would just use them enough, they wouldn't be considered cuss words anymore, and no one would ever be offended by them." This kid is hard to keep up with! "Your mother encourages you to cuss?" Gavin says. Kiersten nods. "I don't see it that way. It's more like she's encouraging us to undermine a system flawed through overuse of words that are made out to be harmful, when in fact they're just letters, mixed together like every other word. That's all they are, mixed-up letters. — Colleen Hoover

The Fcc Quotes By Marvin Ammori

The FCC should obviously not propose bad rules that will be struck down; it should propose good rules that will be upheld. — Marvin Ammori

The Fcc Quotes By Chellie Pingree

The FCC can and indeed should do more to protect the Internet as the free and open environment people have come to expect and depend on - which is why we need to stand up to attacks on the FCC's authority. — Chellie Pingree

The Fcc Quotes By Ayn Rand

FCC power rests on ... nonobjective law (which) delivers men's lives, fortunes, careers, ambitions into the arbitrary power of a bureaucrat who can reward or punish at whim. — Ayn Rand

The Fcc Quotes By Marvin Ammori

The current FCC chairman, Tom Wheeler, is highly regarded, but some distrust him because he is the former head lobbyist of both the cable and wireless phone industries. He's also made some statements suggesting he doesn't understand or opposes network neutrality. — Marvin Ammori

The Fcc Quotes By Bernie Sanders

[T]he Federal Communications Commission should reestablish two principles that formerly served this country well: the public service requirement and the fairness doctrine. Every television and radio station should once again be required to devote a meaningful percentage of its programming to public service broadcasting. The public, after all, owns the airwaves through which signals are broadcast, and the rights-of-way in which cables are strung. And every television and radio station should once again have to follow the fairness doctrine: those with opposing views should have the right to respond to viewpoints expressed on the station. — Bernie Sanders

The Fcc Quotes By Tim Walberg

Do we really want the FCC to conduct investigations and issue warnings to radio talk show hosts nationwide who simply discuss the important issues of our time? The Constitution says 'freedom of speech,' not 'freedom of government-approved fair speech in rationed amounts.' — Tim Walberg

The Fcc Quotes By Marvin Ammori

The FCC banned throttling for good reason, namely that Internet service providers should not bias their networks toward some applications or classes of applications. Biasing the network interferes with user choice, innovation, decisions of application makers, and the competitive marketplace. — Marvin Ammori

The Fcc Quotes By David Limbaugh

Michael J. Copps, acting FCC chairman, has denounced the lack of racial and gender diversity in the broadcast industry as 'a shameful state of affairs.' Unsurprisingly, his proposed corrective is to force the transfer of station ownership to greater numbers of minorities, who are statistically more likely to carry liberal talk shows. — David Limbaugh

The Fcc Quotes By Fred Upton

For those broadcasters who are less than responsible, the FCC needs to have sharper teeth to enforce the law. — Fred Upton

The Fcc Quotes By Marsha Blackburn

FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell has said that several foreign dignitaries personally spoke to him about creating a new Internet user fee to subsidize an international universal service fund at the expense of traditional end users. — Marsha Blackburn

The Fcc Quotes By Marvin Ammori

Thinking about free speech brought me to media regulation, as Americans access so much of their political and cultural speech through mass media. That led me to work on the FCC's media ownership rules beginning in 2005 to fight media consolidation, working with those at Georgetown's IPR, Media Access Project, Free Press, and others. — Marvin Ammori

The Fcc Quotes By David Letterman

The FCC has delayed the decision on the Time/Warner Comcast merger. So how do you think those folks like being put on hold? — David Letterman

The Fcc Quotes By Doug Ose

Currently under FCC policy, indecency determinations hinge on two factors. First, material must describe or depict sexual or excretory organs or activities. Second, the material must be patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium. — Doug Ose

The Fcc Quotes By Marvin Ammori

The Open Internet principles were not legal rules adopted by the FCC; they were effectively a press statement posted on the FCC website. — Marvin Ammori

The Fcc Quotes By Maria Semple

I conducted an off-site consisting of 25 parents in the Seattle area with an income of $200K+ and whose children are entering kindergarten. The headline is that Galer Street is considered a second-tier school, a fallback option for those who don't get accepted to their first-choice school. Our objective is to move the needle on Galer Street and kick it up into the First-Choice Cluster (FCC) for Seattle's elite. How do we achieve this? What is the secret sauce? — Maria Semple

The Fcc Quotes By Reed Hundt

The Department of Justice should resolutely bar monopolizing mergers in all markets, including telecommunications, but they are not in a position, as is the FCC, to promote new competition by selling the airwaves in auctions. — Reed Hundt

The Fcc Quotes By Paul Boutin

Unlike the phone system, the Internet has no Ma Bell or FCC to mandate new policies for the entire system. Not even Microsoft can make us all upgrade our routers. I think. — Paul Boutin

The Fcc Quotes By Cory Doctorow

Every telecomm company is as big a corporate welfare bum as you could ask for. Try to imagine what it would cost at market rates to go around to every house in every town in every country and pay for the right to block traffic and dig up roads and erect poles and string wires and pierce every home with cabling. The regulatory fiat that allows these companies to get their networks up and running is worth hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars.
If phone companies want to operate in the "free market," then let them: the FCC could give them 60 days to get all their rotten copper out of our dirt, or we'll buy it from them at the going scrappage rates. Then, let's hold an auction for the right to be the next big telecomm company, on one condition: in exchange for using the public's rights-of-way, you have to agree to connect us to the people we want to talk to, and vice-versa, as quickly and efficiently as you can. — Cory Doctorow

The Fcc Quotes By Fred Upton

You shouldn't have an overbearing FCC. Let the market work itself. By allowing companies to compete in an unregulated forum, you're going to allow the faster deployment of new services and new equipment consumers are going to want. — Fred Upton

The Fcc Quotes By Marvin Ammori

There is just one exception to the FCC's no-throttling rule - if a company can prove that throttling is 'reasonable network management.' — Marvin Ammori

The Fcc Quotes By Steven Magee

I have no faith in the USA corporate government systems of protection of public health and safety. — Steven Magee

The Fcc Quotes By Vint Cerf

Although the FCC has tried to introduce net neutrality rules to avoid abusive practices like favoring your own services over others, they have struggled because there has been more than one court case in which it was asserted the FCC didn't have the authority to punish ISPs for abusing their control over the broadband channel. — Vint Cerf

The Fcc Quotes By Marsha Blackburn

Inserting the FCC into our states' economic and fiscal affairs sets a dangerous precedent and violates state sovereignty in a manner that warrants deeper examination. — Marsha Blackburn

The Fcc Quotes By Emma Caulfield

We love having the freedom that we have with the web; I mean, we don't have to answer to anybody. We have complete creative control; we don't have to worry about FCC regulations. — Emma Caulfield
