Podcast #172 – The FCC at the End of 2018, with Prof. Christopher Terry

As 2018 draws to a close the FCC is poised to throw another death blow at radio, proposing to allow complete ownership monopolies in hundreds of radio markets. At the same time the Commission has to defend its decimation of network neutrality in court, even after the DC Court of Appeals ruled the earlier open internet rules are utterly constitutional (twice). And while Sinclair lost its bid to steamroll what’s left of TV ownership caps and acquire Tribune’s stations, another company is getting ready to vacuum them up.

The state and status of our media and communications freedom hangs in the balance. That’s why we ask Prof. Christopher Terry to help us make sense of it all. He’s professor of media law at the University of Minnesota, and he’ll explain what it all means, and what we can do about the Commission’s plan to let even the four major TV networks merge into mega-networks.
