California: A Statement and Suggestions Concerning Clear Channel, Talk Radio And the Public Interest Obligation in Broadcasting to the Community of Sacramento

February 6, 2012

This testimony from various Californian groups reads, in part, 'Radio transmits over a limited number of frequencies in the air. As the airwaves are deemed public property, and as the number of available frequencies on the airwaves are physically scarce, those business persons choosing to go into broadcasting make a deal with the local community in exchange for a license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to be in the broadcasting business: every radio licensee is required by the FCC to serve the "public interest, convenience, and necessity."'

FCC Vote Kneecaps Local Media by Clearing Way for Massive Mergers like Sinclair-Tribune

November 16, 2017; Press Release, Status Update

Even for this craven FCC majority, today’s vote to bless more media consolidation represents an awful new low. The FCC just wiped away time-tested and common sense safeguards that promote vibrant local media by ensuring voters have access to competing sources of news. By blessing consolidation this majority has ensured newsroom redundancy, meaning fewer working journalists to hold the powerful to account. And if that were not enough, let Big Broadcast get even bigger means cable customers nationwide will pay higher bills.
