Since when is it the GOVERNMENTS/ OUR TAX DOLLARS responsibality to make sure everyone has a TV?


Hey, iMike, consider a few rhetorical questions:

Who owns the broadcast spectrum?
How much have TV broadcasters paid for use of that spectrum?
Who decided to transition our broadcast system from NTSC to ATSC?
Who profited from the auction of spectrum freed in that transition?

Thus, it became our government's responsibility when our government decided to dismantle the current NTSC system of free OTA TV so that it could profit nearly $20 billion from the auction of public airwaves made available by the transition to ATSC free OTA TV.

Do you know what a "straw man" is?
