No I had it right. The PP said that the broadcasters had the spectrum. I said that the PP was wrong. I'm correct.
Sorry, but you have that wrong.
Some news for you: "We the People of the United States ... do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." Just in case you thought there was someone else behind this magical thing called "government".
The public airwaves belong to we, the American people, the "public" as it were.
I think I understand your confusion: You seem to think that you and I own the airwaves, ourselves, individually, in some way, instead of the reality, that we own them collectively (hence my earlier mention about the "government"). As such, "we" absolutely can and do use our own airwaves and even derive revenue from them.
Yes, you and I own the airwaves...isn't that great? Only problem is, except for a few of very narrow exceptions we (the people) can't use our own airwaves, and we (the people) can't derive any revenue from them.
