Petition asks FCC to deny license to Fox affiliate in Philadelphia

A petition filed with the Federal Communications Commission would deny the license renewal of Fox TV station in Philadelphia. The petition says that the station is not just a business but also a public trust: “It is crucial to our democracy that broadcasting remain a trusted source of news. A company that knowingly and repeatedly presents false news just to placate its core viewers undermines that sense of trust. The false news presented by Fox has done grievous damage to our country and its citizens.” (Deadline, July 6, 2023, by Dominic Patten)
