THE FUTURE OF MEDIA
Media ownership - how does it affect you? Are rules limiting media ownership simply archaic boundaries out of touch with the modern world? Or do they protect the diversity of views necessary to preserve a democracy? Today on HearSay, in anticipation of a Town Hall Meeting with FCC Commissioners Jonathan Adelstein and Michael Copps, we take a look at the future of media and what it means to the average citizen. We speak with Commissioner Copps, Ed Munson, Vice President of Television at LIN Television Corporation, and Professor Jeffrey Jones at the Department of Communications and Theater Arts, Old Dominion University.
