The Press has certainly abandoned it's roll as the "Watchdogs of our Democracy", but it's still all we have. Almost every Newspaper is in financial difficulty and has been for a long time, and that's really made a difference in their reporting.

Around here I get more reliable news from my friends and most of it is never even published in the news. For example a grocery store was robbed a week ago and they never even told the public that a criminal was on the loose with guns in the area I learned about it from a friend.

I'm guessing the papers would do a lot better if they actually remembered they were suppose to be the "Watch Dogs".As it is they are just "Dogs".

Free Phones by Republicans;

Republicans Seek to Eliminate ‘Obamaphone’ Program
By Bob Cesca
March 14, 2013
The Daily Banter

I’m sure you recall a video that circulated around the tubes before the election of an African American woman who was attending a roadside rally for the Obama campaign. In the video, the woman ranted somewhat incoherently about her apparently free “Obamaphone.” As soon as Drudge plastered her face above his logo, far-right Republican heads began to immediately explode over the notion of “minorities” receiving free phones from the White House as alleged bribes for volunteerism and votes.

The truth is that the Lifeline program has been around since 1984 when, that’s right, "Ronald Reagan" helped to create it. In 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) set up a non-profit outfit called the Universal Service Administrative Company, which receives financial backing via the Universal Service Fund. According to its website, money for the program is contributed entirely by “long distance companies, local telephone companies, wireless telephone companies, paging companies, and payphone providers,” and none of the funding comes from taxpayers via the federal government. The goal of the program is to make sure low income Americans have access to an affordable telephone in case of emergency or for the job search process.

Nobody disputed it, at the time. I don't quite understand how you know that the Law was voted in under the Previous LIBERAL Administration, yet you say there is no such Law and cited all the Stations that you say, air Fox Fake News. Those things, in your Post, are inconsistent to me. So, did you surf the Internet and look it up right before Posting?
Did you miss the part where he said it was a law that "TRIED" to ban those stations? Considering the way you read what you are responding to, I can understand why you are so mixed up. You can't read ALL of anything.

I would not neccessarily say "contributed: Collected is usually more the case.

"Pull up your cell phone statement online, or take out your paper landline phone bill. Hidden among the expected federal, state, and local taxes and numerous mystery fees is a line-item titled either the Federal Universal Service Fee or Universal Connectivity Fee. This article will discuss the history of this fee, how this money is spent, the recent attempts to reform the fee, and the implications reform will have on the telecommunications industry.

To understand the origins of this tax, you have to go back to the Communications Act of 1934. One goal of this legislation was to provide universal phone service at a reasonable price to all people of the United States. In the 1930s, only 40% of U.S. households had telephones. To accomplish the goal of universal service, phone companies charged higher long distance rates than needed to spread the financial burden for providing universal service.

It was not until the passing of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 that the funding structure for universal service changed. Phone companies could no longer fund universal service through higher long distance rates. Instead, the act mandated that universal service be paid for by telephone companies in the form of a tax. These collected taxes form the Universal Service Fund (USF) which is overseen by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC).

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 does not require telephone companies to bill customers for this tax but permits them to do so. Companies have the option of including this tax in the overall service price, or they can have a lower service price and list the USF charge separately. The majority of companies strategically choose the latter option.

If you have a cell phone, landline, or VoIP line in the United States you pay a percentage of your total bill into the USF every month. This percentage is known as the quarterly USF Contribution Factor. The monthly fee is collected from you by your carrier, forwarded to the USAC, and then the USAC distributes the funds to its four programs:
