The Equal Opportunities Rule is a matter which is strictly political in nature. The rule applies only to candidates of public office, and is another law that seems absurd with the abundance of media favoritism for both major parties of government. There are few exceptions made by Congress for this law, which include legitimate newscasts and on-the-scene coverage of authentic news events, but this rule exists, in essence, to ensure that no speculation of impropriety can be made toward elections (Dominic, 2009, pg.381-382). Whether or not the law exists, all major candidates of an office are going to have their supporters and supporting broadcast networks. Conclusion As I have described, legal language can be quite confusing. After reading this essay, do you have any clearer ideas about how obscenity and indecency actual differ? In a world where just about anyone with access to the Internet can post any sort of material, where can the lines be drawn? And who is to decide? It appears that even the highest court in the land is certain about only one thing: that their interpretations of the meanings are continually changing to fit the times. Two more laws governing broadcasting were reviewed. These two statutes (one repealed) were made to ensure that significant events and electoral candidates receive fair and reasonable and/or equal broadcast time. Once again, with the changing times and access to the web, everyone is going to get their fair share of broadcast time and supporters.

FCC’s Control 8 For my final paper I have chosen to use the industry of broadcast television. The actual profession I have chosen is that of the journalist. I came to this conclusion because this is ultimately what I would like to do as a career. I would like to go even deeper and choose a sports journalist, but I assume that you will have to read this and let me know if I can do that. The Industry I chose broadcast television because it has been a huge part of my life since as long as I can remember. I always imagined myself being involved in TV, one way or another. I plan to start with the advent of TV, and, if you approve my sports journalist as a profession, I would like
