So You Wanna Do Radio News?

Under some interpretations of the Interstate Commerce Clause, 'thinking' is an economic activity.

Similarly, in the world the FCC would like to create, news outlets should:

“...prove they have made a meaningful commitment to public affairs and news programming, prove they are committed to diversity programming (for instance, by showing that they depict women and minorities), report more to the government about which shows they plan to air, require greater disclosure about who funds political ads and devote 25 percent of their prime-time coverage to local news.”

If you think otherwise, the Commerce Clause kicks in and you go directly to jail.
