Local SF pirate radio station fined $10,000 by Obama's FCC

I was interviewed on Pirate Cat Radio before, which is more than I can say for most of the local corporate radio stations. I left comments dropping the hint that maybe some station personnel and listeners made a mistake voting for Obama and wishing them luck getting back on the air, and noting that the sentence from the press release below, "The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934, and was given the responsibility of making a “fair, efficient and equitable distribution of radio service”, and to ensure that broadcasters serve the ‘public interest’" provides a good example of how well-intentioned government programs can end up being harmful rather than helpful.

  Would it be premature to tout the benefits to pirate radio operators of having a welcoming broadcast base 12 miles offshore?
