Re: Challenging FCC authority more than rules themselves

said by hottboiinnc:

Congress needs to slap the FCC and tell them they need to start doing what they were created for to regulate the public airwaves for public radio. NOT the Internet.

I guess you haven't read what Congress wrote in the 1996 Telecommunications Act, and before that in the 1934 Communications Act that created the FCC. They gave the FCC far more authority than just over the public airwaves. It pretty much covers the whole sphere of communications. They just happen to have limited authority over "information services" like ISP's.

Re: Challenging FCC authority more than rules themselves

So are you saying that the FCC is above Congress and the courts?
