The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was created in 1934 to regulate broadcasting (especially radio and television). Some critics maintain that the FCC’s broadcast standards of what is and what isn’t acceptable makes it a bureau that censors speech—the equivalent of what the Soviet Union broadcasted under communist rule.
The FCC nickname “Federal Communist Commission” (or “Federal Communism Commission") has been cited in print since at least 2001. The FCC nickname “Federal Censorship Commission” has been cited in print since at least 1971.
Wikipedia: Federal Communications Commission
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent agency of the United States government, created, Congressional statute (see 47 U.S.C. § 151 and 47 U.S.C. § 154), and with the majority of its commissioners appointed by the current President. The FCC works towards six goals in the areas of broadband, competition, the spectrum, the media, public safety and homeland security, and modernizing the FCC.
The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934 as the successor to the Federal Radio Commission and is charged with regulating all non-federal government use of the radio spectrum (including radio and television broadcasting), and all interstate telecommunications (wire, satellite and cable) as well as all international communications that originate or terminate in the United States. It is an important factor in U.S. telecommunication policy. The FCC took over wire communication regulation from the Interstate Commerce Commission. The FCC’s mandated jurisdiction covers the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. possessions. However, the FCC also provides varied degrees of cooperation, oversight, and leadership for similar communications bodies in other countries of North America. The FCC has an estimated 2011 budget of US$335.8 million which is entirely funded by regulatory fees, and has a proposed budget of US$354.2 million for 2012, which will also be fully derived from regulatory fees. It has 1,898 “full-time equivalent” federal employees.

FCC stands for Federal Communist Commission
Every so often, I reserve the right to devote a post not to Playboy itself, but to one of the topics frequently addressed in Playboy’s articles, such as free speech.
The Federal Communications Commission justifies its crusade against “indecency” through a crypto-Marxist theory of public ownership of the airwaves.
