History of the FCC

This pair of videos talk about the history of the FCC and the different acts and cases that helped form the basis of our modern-day communication law while at the same time using language akin to a peer instead of an instructor, making it easier to follow. For somebody who may not have the time or desire to read through the entirety of the documents, these videos help explain their significance and role in communication law. The first one talks about the Communications Act of 1934 and relevant cases including NBC v US and Red Lion v FCC. The second video talks about the Radio Act of 1927 and also discusses relevant cases such as Miller V California and FCC v Pacifica.
