The head of the Federal Communications Commission is trying to douse Republican accusations that his agency is trying to covertly police the editorial decisions of TV news.

In a letter to senior House Republicans released Thursday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said the agency “has no intention of regulating political or other speech of journalists or broadcasters.”

Republicans have picked at an FCC study introduced last spring on “critical information needs” that is intended to examine barriers of entry into the news media industry for small businesses. The study’s inquiry included questions such as: “What is the news philosophy of the station?” and “Who decides which stories are covered?”

The FCC is required by law to conduct such research studies, but the commission’s critics say this one was an initial foray into an effort to regulate newsrooms’ editorial decisions.
