When Americans get frustrated with their media, they often feel inclined to take their gripes to a higher power. That would be the government. Commentators, journalists, pundits, etc., drive news consumers over and over to dial up or e-mail the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) — the better to lobby for relief from all these experts. The Erik Wemple Blog a while back requested a cross-section of complaints and hereby continues a series showcasing the best ones.
On June 25, 2010, a news consumer from Garrison, N.Y., submitted the following complaint to the FCC regarding Fox News:
CTR 277: The consumer stated the picture broke up and pixelated and words came across the TV screen, “Your [F___ing] Crazy.” The consumer said the other stations were o.k. This was during the Beck program approximately 05:44 p.m. and was on about a minute or minute and a half in big 2 – 2 1/2″ white lettering across the screen.
