It is interesting, the newspapers have been defended as having free speech rights but the courts. But broadcasters, don’t really have free speech rights, according to current precedent. Broadcasters are licensing the airwaves from the government, as such they don’t have the rights one would normally associate with the press. Look up the “fairness doctrine,” the FCC repudiated the doctrine the memo explaining they were not gong to enforce the rule anymore, but Red Lion Broadcasting Co. v. FCC upheld the doctrine as constitutional. It is a little unnerving, and worrisome, when you look at the way the newspapers are going, and how the government has the power to regulate the internet like it does TV and radio.
