54 Libertarian FAQ: Should the government regulate radio, TV, or the press?

America's free press is envied by freedom-starved people everywhere.
Dictators use a controlled press to silence opposition and to feed
lies to their citizens.

Americans would not like it if the government here owned or controlled
the newspapers. Why should we like government control of TV and radio
any better? As with printed words, broadcast words can and should be
regulated by the free market.

Americans should be able to freely choose what they will watch or
listen to, without Big Brother making those decisions for them. [3]
