What rules/laws/regulations actually come into play when deciding which words are allowed on broadcast radio/TV in the US? [more inside]
In an attempt to cut the cable cord, I'm using NFL Gamepass this year. My favorite feature so far is the ability to switch between the televised broadcast audio to the home and away teams' radio audio during the game. (I only get the tv audio on rewatch.) So who should I listen to? Is there a Vin Scully equivalent I'm missing out on? Or is there a tv broadcast pair that I should always listen to, no matter what?
I am working on a list since 2004 that I think would be salable. It's publicly available contact information for radio, TV, magazines, syndicates, newspapers, book publishers and agents. I'm a freelancer and I originally started it because I wanted to be able to reach these sources to interest them in my content. But I realized it could be a product. [more inside]
I know that we have TV stations, actual buildings where the broadcast originates, and if you're not getting a clear signal on a radio frequency you might say "try another channel" on a walkie-talkie. But when it comes to the device in your home and you want to alter the signal coming in, you "change the channel" on the TV and you "change the station" on the radio. Why these terms for these devices?

If someone watches TV (cable or satellite, digital or analog), does the provider know that someone is watching? I.e., does a non-Neilsen family who skips the ads actually benefit the TV station they are watching? How about DVRs or VOD? How about digital radio?
Would like a uk website, preferably free, that will alert me (email, rss, twitter, whatever) when a television or radio programme is scheduled.

Fist incidence of 'crazed killer, internet rantings?' I'm looking for the earliest incident where someone killed another person or persons (using a plane, car, gun, bomb, toothpick, poison, etc) and the media coverage quickly or immediately went to the web for the background, and found it.

I used to have one of those old VCRs where you had to tune each channel in by hand. It had a set of tiny little dials that let you scan the entire TV spectrum (and beyond?). When the cable wire was plugged in, I could tune in some bizzare things in the audio: rhythmic clicking, low pulses, and most interestingly, other people's phone calls. I assume I was picking up cordless phones, but how did this work? Did the cable system act as a giant antenna all over town? Has this phenomenon ever been documented anywhere?
