  PASS THE PRINDLE 2.0 EXAM THREE STUDY  GUIDE As always, special thanks goes out to you, the Terms definers for coming through immensely  and getting your definitions addressed and handled as early as possible. Without your help and  hard work, there certainly would be no PTP 2.0 Study Guide, and I thank you all for making the  test just that much less difficult by helping out. Remember, the actual terms themselves are in  red ; the factual definition is in regular font; and the relevance/ significance to the ‘bigger picture’  is in  bold . If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me at any time.  Remain blessed, and I look forward to “PASSING THE PRINDLE” with you all one last time! Federal Communications Committee (FCC)  - The FCC was established by the 1934 Communications Act, to allow  government to regulate media. It grants licenses to broadcast based upon whether or not stations are broadcasting in  “the public interest.”  This is important because the FCC is potentially very powerful and is politically  influenced; the FCC also reinforces that radio and TV airwaves ‘belong to the people’/are owned by the  public.  Public interest, convenience, and necessity –  belief that the FCC is charged with making sure that broadcaster do  what they do according to the public interest. When stations get licenses, they have an obligation/necessity to  broadcast “in the public’s interest.”  This is important because granting a license is like saying someone is going  to get rich; therefore, lots of people want to get licenses. “Power of the purse” –  Refers to the Constitutional power that Congress can raise and spend money. Such power  means that Congress could cut the FCC budget and it would go away. Congress can also pass certain laws that the  FCC must abide by.  This is important because ‘power of the purse’ gives Congress power over the FCC and,  therefore, power over what is broadcasted. (Tele) Communications Subcommittee -  A House of Representatives subcommittee (of the Committee of Energy  and Commerce). It watches information transmitted by broadcast, radio, satellite and other modes of

communication. It also watches the FCC: if it does something the subcommittee doesn't like, it can cut off FCC  funding.  This illustrates the big influence Congress has over the FCC because Congress controls the purse  strings.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
