A Real Home of Real Fake News - WhoWhatWhy
The Under-the-Radar Media Company Trump Loves
Lately, the media is just as much in the news as it is covering the news. Most of it we see. The power of Fox and Friends. The daily scoops from The New York Times and Washington Post. Sean Hannity and his talk-radio acolytes, the progressive mantra of MSNBC.
But one outlet is more pervasive than all these. Its 173 television stations, soon to be 216, broadcast into the living rooms of three-quarters of American homes. Its stations feed a daily diet of Trumpisms. Former FCC Chairman Michael Copps, has called it “the most dangerous company most people have never heard of.”

FCC “apology” shows anything can be posted to agency site using insecure API | Ars Technica
FCC API could be misused to host malware on FCC's domain.
The Federal Communications Commission's website already gets a lot of traffic—sometimes more than it can handle. But thanks to a weakness in the interface that the FCC published for citizens to file comments on proposed rule changes, there's a lot more interesting—and potentially malicious—content now flowing onto one FCC domain. The system allows just about any file to be hosted on the FCC's site—potentially including malware.
The application programming interface for the FCC's Electronic Comment Filing System that enables public comment on proposed rule changes—such as the dropping of net neutrality regulations currently being pushed by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai—has been the source of some controversy already. It exposed the e-mail addresses of public commenters on network neutrality—intentionally, according to the FCC, to ensure the process' openness—and was the target of what the FCC claimed was a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. But as a security researcher has found, the API could be used to push just about any document to the FCC's website, where it would be instantly published without screening. That was demonstrated by a PDF published with Microsoft Word that was uploaded to the site, now publicly accessible.

Don’t Trust in Antitrust Law to Protect Net Neutrality | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Back in 2014, we considered many possible ways of protecting net neutrality that would not rely on the FCC, including antitrust law. Unfortunately, U.S. antitrust law is not up to the challenge.
Antitrust law is an economic doctrine that gives little if any weight to freedom of expression and other noneconomic values secured by net neutrality. Antitrust law defines harm in terms of higher prices and diminished product quality. If antitrust law deems that a practice is not harmful to competition, it does not matter how much it represses speech, distorts access to knowledge, or intrudes on privacy. Antitrust law has no concept of the "gatekeeper" problem posed by an ISP's control over your conduit to information.

Stop the Cap! American Enterprise Institute's Shallow Formula for Broadband Nirvana ·
The American Enterprise Institute wants the FCC to judge to quality of America’s broadband based on what customers are able to buy today and how much they are willing to pay to get it.
Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 requires the FCC to report to Congress whether broadband “is being deployed to all Americans in a reasonable and timely fashion.” As part of that process, the FCC must determine if Americans are getting internet connections capable of providing “advanced telecommunications capability.”

A Title II opponent explains why Ajit Pai’s plan won’t protect net neutrality | Ars Technica
Pai says antitrust will protect net neutrality—here's why it probably won't.
The Federal Communications Commission plan to repeal net neutrality rules depends partly on the argument that antitrust rules can protect consumers and websites from bad behavior by Internet service providers.
"I think that antitrust and consumer protection authorities stand at the vanguard to make sure that consumers and competition are protected," FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a recent interview with NPR.

FCC Denies EchoStar Request for Co-primary Geostationary Orbit Ka-band Designation | TvTechnology
"The FCC's International Bureau last week denied a Petition for Rulemaking filed by EchoStar Satellite Corporation requesting the commission modify its Ka-band plan to permit geostationary satellite orbit (GSO) fixed satellite service (FSS) operations on a co-primary basis in the 18.8-19.3 GHz and 28.6-29.1 GHz bands designated for non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) FSS. EchoStar's petition received support from SES AMERICOM, Hughes Electronics Corporation, and Hughes Network Systems, which supported EchoStar's assertion that the spectrum is lying fallow and co-primary use could lead to the introduction of additional and innovative services."

From Boeing to SpaceX: 11 companies looking to shake up the satellite space | FierceWireless
"Companies filed with the FCC last year to launch 8,731 non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) communications satellites, according to Parabolic Arc. Not all of them are proposing to connect the unconnected to the internet; some are geared toward IoT and others are looking at serving the space industry. Performance is expected to be far better than previous satellite generations, with fiberlike speeds and lower latency."
