I never saw where it was the job of the FCC to PROTECT consumers.
The FCC seems to believe it is one of their primary goals. Many of your examples of their roles and responsibilities are related to the fundamental description of "consumer protection", either directly or indirectly.

"The goal of protecting and empowering consumers is among the Commission's most important responsibilities," said Chairman Genachowski at the time.

Yes, someone might want to tell the recently created consumer protection division within the FCC (run by the former editor of Consumer Reports) they don't actually (and/or shouldn't) exist. I'm sure they'll enjoy that.
