Apparently freedom of speech is on the outs with Paul Critz, owner of KFUG-FM radio station. When Samuel Strait was talking about opening up the economy in Del Norte in contrast to the owners position, Sam was dismissed. This position held by Sam is an unpaid position.
KFUG is a 100 watt community radio station licensed by the FCC. Some believe that Paul Critz has and continues to use KFUG radio station as his own personal propaganda tool. According to the terms of the KFUG license, the station must offer diverse and balanced views; he has failed to do this.
A complaint was filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on May 27, 2020 ticket # 3996149. Further they said, “… complaint provides valuable information to spot trends and practices that warrant investigation and enforcement action. We do not resolve individual complaints about this issue and, there will be no status information to report on your complaint.
If the FCC needs more information about your complaint, we will contact you directly.
Each year, the Enforcement Bureau takes hundreds of actions on behalf of consumers that result in tens of millions of dollars in penalties. These actions encourage companies and individuals to abide by the law and reduce future misconduct.
The information you provided us will continue to be available internally within the FCC to inform the Commission’s enforcement and policymaking processes.
Thank you for your help in furthering the FCC’s mission on behalf of consumers.”
It will become increasinly more difficult to maintain a free society when only one side of any issue is heard.
