Possibly in era of Butlerian Djihad people thought people in it look too artificial and banned it. But mostly I think it was ineffective. Planet-wide TV could be, but radio waves are too slow for live interstellar broadcast. Speed of light is too low. That's why most interplanetar communication is based on spice.

Obviously, radio is too slow for any type of broadcasting, as Caid Ivik mentioned. I always imagined news getting around via couriers on Heighliners, much the same way as it got around before radio. Well, without the Heighliners, of course.

When you explain too much, you can lose the story's charm. Planetwide radio/television was probably around, it's just not very important to the story, though.
