Podcast #50 – Prometheus v FCC and a Generation of Gridlock

The FCC has made nearly zero progress in its Congressionally mandated review and revision of media ownership rules for more than a decade. Instead the Commission has been dragging its feet for 13 years by failing to comply adequately to the ruling of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Prometheus v. FCC, which challenges the the Bush-era Michael Powell-led rules that the Court found to be unconstitutional.

Prof. Christopher Terry of the University of Minnesota joins to explain the Court’s most recent ruling, which can only be seen as a slap to the FCC. He explains the ruling, and helps us understand what it means for our media environment, and how it fits into a generation-long quagmire in how our electronic media is regulated.

Jennifer Waits joins for College Radio Watch, sharing her tour of WCUA at the Catholic University of America.

Hours and hours of labor and effort go into touring radio stations around the country, along with producing this podcast every week. The generous support of Radio Survivor readers and listeners helps us keep the lights on, but we still need your help to keep the tours and the podcast going.
