Pirate radio = drug dealing and municipal broadband is anti-competitive censorship

"How 1984"

No surprise here - and "Animal Farm" as well - the techniques of pure propaganda are centuries old and well known. Especially the "inversion of truth" Orwell knew so well from Communist propaganda. The irony is these people who thinks to be "true Americans" act exactly like Soviet apparatchik.

It's also very ironic that on one side the State must act and kill of those pirate stations, in the interest of the citizens, on the other end the State must do nothing but let telco do whatever they like, often against the citizens - it's quite incoherent - as long as you don't look behind the finger and understand these people don't really work for the FCC but for the people they are talking to.
