Did last night's US presidential debate Wi-Fi rip-off break the law?

I would agree that a Faraday cage, blocking all RF would probably considered a legal, passive, method of denying access to external WiFi.

But that isn't what occurred here and is the central part of my question: does "intentional block or disrupt" only apply to active electronic disruption or can venue owner using, in this case, denial or revocation of credentials to force people to turn off WiFi hotspots be considered blocking or disrupting? What grants the venue owner the sole arbiter of who gets to use the unlicensed spectrum in that area?
