FCC Finally Responds to Public Demand to Deregulate Cable and Broadcast Companies

Ajit Pai, the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, said on Tuesday that he will address the top complaint that Americans have about modern cable, TV, and internet companies: That the companies need more freedom to do what they want.

Standing in front of a crowd of unemployed Americans whose stories don’t get told on the news, and impoverished Americans who don’t have affordable internet access, Pai got visibly emotional as he pledged that one of his top priorities will be, “To remove unnecessary or counterproductive regulations from the books…We want to make sure that our regulations match the realities of the modern marketplace.”

Pai’s comments were not covered by TV news.

One Trump voter in attendance, Joe Btfsplk, told reporters he was just happy that the new FCC had voted to make sure the public would no longer be able to see any of the files that cable and broadcast companies used to have to make available to the public. “We don’t need that kind of trash from our TV and radio companies. This is a family-friendly country. Now that Trump has his people running the FCC, I can sleep at night knowing that our regulations match the realities of the modern marketplace.”
