NO. and that’s because the Fox News Channel is distributed only by cable. not by broadcast over the airwaves. (Local Fox-owned TV stations are regulated because they use the airwaves.) The FCC regulates who can use airwaves because the spectrum of broadcast frequencies available is limited. There are only so many stations that can broadcast television signals in a given area—limited mainly by the physics of how broadcasting works and how one station’s signal could interfere with another station’s signal. Thus the frequency spectrum is considered a public resource that is allocated only to broadcasters who agree to certain public service requirements.
