Journalism, Integrity, And Penalties For Violation -- Remove FCC Broadcasting Rights

A few thoughts going through my head:

1) Why is the "fake news" main stream media, pretty much owned by 6 individuals, not sued or prosecuted or have their licenses to broadcast removed entirely?

2) Why the slow, or really, non-existant prosecution of agents acting in a seditious manner not being rolled out in a quicker manner.

This link below is not to a "law", not to a licensing bureau such as the FCC, but what penalties could be established for organizations that pretend to follow this code of conduct, but don't?

FCC can pull organizations license.   A question remains, do organizations that do not use the "air waves" and instead use cables, have to comply with FCC regulations?

What responsibilities do broadcasters have?
Broadcasters may not intentionally distort the news. The FCC states that "rigging or slanting the news is a most heinous act against the public interest."
