  1. 1 Show/Hide More The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution: A History
    This video looks a history of the 14th Amendment. The video was published by the Institute for Justice, a conservative leaning organization that works to lobby for limited government. It is illustrated in the later half of the video were limited government ideologies come up in the terms of the 2nd Amendment and throughout the video.

  2. 2 Show/Hide More 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.
  3. 3 Show/Hide More George Carlin / 7 Words You Can't Say On Television
    This video is connected to the aforementioned case example FCC v Pacifica Foundation. It contains the original audio of George Carlin’s Seven Dirty Words. Along with providing background to why the case was filed, the routine itself provides food for thought in regards to what words are censored and which aren’t along with questioning the practice itself. Carlin himself was a very controversial figure with the FBI having a 12 page file on the comedian.

    It covers the material in the textbook’s first chapter in only about a minute and it has many helpful graphics that help explain the state vs federal court system and the hierarchy of courts as well. For somebody just learning the basics of communication law, it is a good first thing to watch in order to figure out what exactly is the system all about.This video is a very concise way of explaining how the court system works in the United States.
