Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In this, the fiftieth anniversary of the filing of the petition to deny the renewal of the FCC license of WLBT TV in Jackson, Mississippi,
one has to wonder whether a case like this would ever occur again. The media and its regulated technology are barely recognizable today from the what was "state of the art" then and much of the conservative right wing of government would be opposed to much of the D.C. court of appeals approach to being harsh with those with broadcast licenses.

Today, fewer citizens even understand the role of the FCC, much less the right to have the telecommunications regulatory body preserve the public interest. Perhaps when history is written fifty years from now, we as a nation will realize that we cannot think that we can take for granted the protection of the public interest by our government.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A detailed and well-written historical account of the onerous process by which control of local TV broadcasting was finally wrested from segregationists who wanted to control content and limit participation by a particular demographic group. This story (and the ultimate positive impact of the final decision) foreshadows and remains highly relevant to today's debates over media consolidation, telecommunication regulation, Internet governance, and the importance of regulatory independence and transparency in preserving a free and open media to sustain a free society.
