Why, you've an inherent right to broadband internet and broadcast TV -- you're owed that! Except it might not be high-definition TV, as the FCC seems to think wireless broadband is the way to go and wants to grab up 120 MHz of bandwidth everywhere to do it. 120 MHz? That's twenty (20) TV channels! One way they'll get room is to scrunch local TV stations into half-channels, which doesn't leave enough room for high-def. C'mon, you knew it was just a fad, like color or stereo sound.
But hey, access to political ads and Presidential news conferences is a right! It's free! Shaddup an' eat yer lotuses.
