FCC Update

According to the nytimes there is mounting controversy surrounding Kevin Martin’s plan to relax the rules surrounding media ownership.

Jeff Jarvis, author of the blog BuzzMachine, has a different take on the Kevin Martin’s plan to relax media ownership laws. Unlike Robert McChesney (see previous post) he thinks the FCC allowing cross-platform media ownership is a good thing and should in fact go further. He writes: “Why not give them a chance to invent new ways to gather and serve journalism across all media and all distribution channels?”
