Testimony of Michael J. Copps to the Subcommittee on Information and Technology

January 14, 2014

We are here today to review whether the Communications Act needs to be updated or otherwise "reformed". I have heard some say that simply because the Act is old, it must be obsolete that no matter how well it has served us, an act written 18 years ago cannot possibly have relevance in today's world.'

Public Interest Groups on Court Ruling Clearing Way for FCC to Erode Rules Allowing Further Media Consolidation

June 15, 2017

Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit denied the emergency stay motion filed by public interest groups, including the National Hispanic Media Coalition, Free Press, Common Cause, Media Alliance, and United Church of Christ, OC, Inc., which sought to prevent the Federal Communications Commission from implementing its decision to reinstate the so-called UHF discount. This will allow the FCC to make it easier for the nation’s largest television ownership groups to acquire additional stations, and crowd out diverse and local voices. The groups are represented by the Institute for Public Representation at Georgetown University Law Center. Despite this interim ruling, the Court will hear the appeal later this year.
