Martin's New Rules Are Corporate Welfare for Big Media
WASHINGTON, DC - November 13 - Today, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin released proposed rule changes that would gut the longstanding prohibition on owning a daily newspaper and broadcast stations in the same media market.
"Chairman Martin's lofty rhetoric talks about saving American newspapers and ensuring a diversity of voices. But the devil is in the details. His new rules appear to be corporate welfare for the largest media companies in the biggest cities.
"The proposed rule has no mention whatsoever of the core policy issues the FCC has failed to address -- the impact of consolidation on local programming, minority ownership and the quantity of local news across the market.
Martin is ignoring overwhelming opposition from the public and Congress to yet another massive giveaway to Big Media."
