Introduction to the FCC

The FCC gets virtually zero news coverage on network, but it has a huge influence over what Americans see and hear in their media and how all of that gets paid for. The result is that the five FCC commissioners have a big, if hidden, influence over our political system.

I’m a fan of Robert McChesney’s radio show and podcast, Media Matters. Two weeks ago he interviewed FCC commissioner Jonathan Adelstein. If you’re looking for a concise introduction to the FCC — what it does and why it matters — check out the show via podcast. You can download the mp3 here, or subscribe to the podcast on the iTunes store here.
