I enjoy listening to the small pirate stations when I can track them down and actually hear them. Corporate broadcasting companies have ruined broadcast radio. They dictate what music gets played, what gets covered on news radio and who's political adds get air time. It's a hot mess.
Actually, the FCC typically views as amateur radio licensees differently, because as others' stated, amateur radio operators are supposed to have a deeper technical understanding of both the proper technical operation of radio transmitting equipment, and the legal ramifications for doing so.
In enforcement bureau actions of the past, amateur radio licensees who venture "outside the bands" and violate other service rules such as part 90, usually have their amateur license set aside during renewal or a revocation action, with the FCC articulating to an ALJ exactly what has been stated, in short, a ham should indeed KNOW BETTER and ACT like a ham, or lose the privileges granted as such.
I agree that a licensed amateur radio operator should know better. I also agree that a licensed amateur radio operator should lose their amateur radio license when found in violation of the FCC's rules for any radio service under the FCC's jurisdiction.
However, for purposes of reporting a story that the FCC has issued a forfeiture order for an FM broadcast license violation, I don't think that someone's status as an amateur radio operator is pertinent.
