censored FCC study

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Amanda Marcotte writes at Pandagon about an FCC study (1.4MB PDF) showing benefits to local ownership of media outlets. Specifically, the findings suggest that:

local ownership of television stations adds almost five and one-half minutes of total news to broadcasts and more than three minutes of “on-location” news. The conclusion is at odds with FCC arguments made when it voted in 2003 to increase the number of television stations a company could own in a single market.

I can understand why data unfavorable to media conglomerates would need to be suppressed by their allies at the FCC.
