Actually one does if one meets the requirements and there is available bandwidth. The government can't pick and choose who it gives a license to based on content.No one has a right to a FCC license.That's censorship, and not what we are talking about.There needs to be regulation and breakups, along with a major restructuring of the FCC, with more funding and authority over what can be broadcast over publicly-owned airwaves and digital frequencies. The people own the frequencies and will not allow them to be abused or used to spread lies to the American public.
Fascists gotta fascist.
The regulation's purpose isn't to filter content, but to stop broadcasters from overriding each other on a signal spectrum.
Given that most people don't get their TV over the airwaves, this form of regulation is rapidly becoming archaic.
