    The Federal Trade Commission was started in the early 1900s to prevent unfair commerce practices and to bust the trusts, like Tammany Hall. They are funded through Congress.

    They are basically a contractor hired by the government to protect monopolies on the airwaves. Like, other things available instead of just one cable company to choose from. They are basically like air wave police, congress gives them full power to check out things and make arrest. Like the DEP police.

    Actually if you pair it all down, it comes from the 'shadow government'.
