The Federal Communications Commission is prohibited from determining broadcast content before the fact (prior restraint). However, beginning with the 1927 Radio Act broadcasters were held responsible for content due to the scarcity of frequencies and past abuses by broadcasters. How do past and present cases serve to guide future efforts by the government to influence electronic media content. Who can and should best determine content: Government, market forces or the media?
