The article criticizes the decision of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to take away the television licenses of the Radio-Keith-Orpheum (RKO) broadcasting company. It presents information on the amount of fine imposed on RKO for alleged clerical misbehavior. It questions the claim of an editorial of The Wall Street Journal that the FCC action is politically motivated.
