This Week in Regulation: September 19, 2020 to September 25, 2020

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Sun 27 Sep 2020 5:04 pm

Here are some of the regulatory and legal actions and developments of the last week of significance to broadcasters, with links to where you can go to find more information as to how these actions may affect your operations.

  • The day before 2020 annual regulatory fees were due, the FCC extended the deadline from 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 25 to 11:59 p.m. on Monday, September, 28. (Public Notice)
  • Broadcast trade publication TVNewsCheck published “A Broadcaster’s Guide to Washington Issues, our periodic survey of the legal and regulatory issues facing television   It is a good resource for both new and veteran broadcasters looking to understand the status of pending legal and regulatory issues for the television industry.
  • For stations looking to stay on top of their KidVid reporting, the updated form to be used for the 2020 Children’s Television Programming Report is now available and can be accessed through the FCC’s Licensing and Management System (LMS). Stations can begin to prepare the form, update it during the remainder of the year, saving the information to be ready to file in January.  The FCC reminds television broadcasters that the form cannot be finalized and submitted until January 1, 2021.  As a reminder, KidVid reports are now filed annually, not quarterly as they were until the rules were changed in 2019.  (Public Notice)
  • The FCC’s Media Bureau has waived the requirement for noncommercial educational (NCE) translator stations to send their carriage election notifications by email to multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD), as required under the FCC’s new carriage election requirements.  The waiver came out of a petition from PBS and the trade association America’s Public Television Stations who said that, in many cases, NCE translators do not even know which MVPDs are carrying them and have no easy way to determine this information, making notification time-consuming and costly with no practical benefit as NCE translators can only “elect” must-carry.

His intentions for the track are pure—to “just to make people dance and groove… that’s the goal.” This aim is also aided by his Senegalese-Swiss roots...


Noncommercial Broadcasters and the Political File

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Fri 25 Sep 2020 12:43 pm

What are a noncommercial broadcaster’s obligations with respect to the political file and the rest of the FCC’s political broadcasting rules?  That is a question that I have heard asked several times in the last few weeks as we approach this most important, and contentious, election.  In short, I think that the answer to this question is that, in most cases, a noncommercial broadcaster will have few if any political file obligations.  Why?

Broadcast stations that are licensed as noncommercial do not have any reasonable access requirements.  What that means is that noncommercial stations do not have any obligation to sell time to political candidates or to make any free time available to the candidates for their messages.  Years ago, reasonable access did apply to noncommercial stations, but when a DC-area congressional candidate used the statutory reasonable access requirements to force a local NPR affiliate (to which many on Capitol Hill listened) to air political commercials, Congress acted to abolish the reasonable access requirement as it applied to noncommercial stations.  So, as noncommercial stations do not need to sell political time to candidates, they are not faced with the political file obligations which have triggered scrutiny from the FCC in recent months.  But that is not to say that there could never be a political file obligation for a noncommercial station.

Where an obligation could arise is when a candidate appears on a noncommercial station in a program that is not an “exempt program.” Exempt programs are programs that are not subject to the equal opportunities (or “equal time” as some call it) rule.  Broadcast stations must provide equal time to a candidate when an opposing candidate appears outside of an exempt program.  But that should rarely, if ever, occur on a noncommercial station.  Bona fide news and news interview programs are exempt programs and thus are exempt from equal time requirements – and the FCC has broadly construed those exemptions.  On-the-spot coverage of a news event is also exempt(see our articles here, here and here for more on these exemptions).  Candidate appearances on these exempt programs do not trigger equal opportunities, and they also do not require any political file entries.

Theoretically, the appearance of a candidate on a non-exempt program could trigger equal opportunities and require public file disclosures.  For a noncommercial station, it would seem like that is most likely to occur when an on-air station employee or volunteer decides to run for political office.  Just as with commercial stations, when an employee becomes a legally qualified candidate for office, every time they appear on the air (even if they are performing their regular on-air duties and not mentioning their campaign), their appearance is a “use” by a candidate subject to equal opportunities and political file obligations.  See our article here about employee-candidates and what can be done if a station’s employees decide to run for office.

Similarly, if a candidate appears in other programming on the station that is not “exempt,” then political file obligations could occur.  Watch for PSAs that feature local government officials who are running for re-election or for other offices, as these can give rise to public file and equal opportunities requirements (see our article here that expands on this warning).  A candidate appearance on some enhanced underwriting spot – even if the spot has nothing to do with their campaign – could also trigger the political rules (see our article here about how commercial stations should treat appearances by candidates in advertising for their businesses).  Or candidate appearances on some purely entertainment programs could trigger equal opportunities (e.g. when Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger ran for political office, their movies could not be shown on television without triggering equal time and public file obligations).

These situations are likely to be few – but be alert and make sure that your noncommercial station does not inadvertently trigger one of these situations where it needs to make entries in its political file about candidate appearances on the stations.

Róisín Murphy: Róisín Machine review – still inventing new moves

Delivered... Alexis Petridis | Scene | Thu 24 Sep 2020 12:00 pm

Pop outsider and lockdown living-room star Murphy distils her disco expertise and musical idiosyncrasies in songs pulsing with dancefloor power

The first thing you hear on Róisín Murphy’s fifth album is a snatch of spoken word, an extract from a monologue that appears in full later. “I feel my story is still untold,” she says, “but I’ll make my own happy ending.”

Murphy’s fans may concur with the sentiment. It’s an article of faith among them that the former Moloko frontwoman should be more famous than she is: look online and the word “underrated” seems to attach itself to her like a nickname. Watching the footage of her performing her former band’s 2003 single Forever More at Glastonbury, or the videos she posted from her living room during lockdown, you can see what they mean. The former offers eight minutes during which Murphy manages to sport four different, preposterous headdresses and execute a mid-song costume change from late-80s raver in puffa jacket, beanie and KLF T-shirt into a glamorous red dress and feather boa. The latter’s high point might well come during a rendition of Murphy’s Law, a single from Róisín Machine, that also involves several changes of headdress: high-kicking around her coffee table, she falls flat on her arse, rectifying herself with a defiant bellow of “I’m alright!” You watch them and think, yes, the charts probably would be a more interesting place if, say, Dermot Kennedy or James Arthur made way for Murphy.
