Someone with deep pockets needs to take it to court: it's a clear 1A
violation, given the way the courts have been interpreting it lately.
Just needs someone friendly to do the deed, and since all of the
broadcast sales lately have been highly transactional and "how can I
unload this the fastest" it's difficult to find a pair of parties
willing to stick it out for the two-plus years that it would take to
get through the FCC and the DC Circuit.  There's just nobody with
sufficient incentive.
