SUNDAY MORNING LIVE: DONALD TRUMP ASKS IF THE FCC SHOULD INVESTIGATE SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE!

The FEC examines improper campaign contributions while the FCC originated the fairness doctrine – a regulation that requires the news give equal time to both sides. However the doctrine was discontinued in 1987 and is no longer on the books. Additionally, when it was used by the FCC as a method of distributing television and radio licenses, it was found not to apply to elected officials.

Also, ‘Saturday Night Live’ is a comedy show and its satire is protected free speech.
