What does Libco have against kids? The TV station owner has been hit with $14,000 in proposed FCC fines for "willful and repeated failures," to put information on kids TV shows in its public file. But the FCC also has decided to renew its station licenses anyway, saying the violations were not serious or evidencing "a pattern of abuse."
