media notice: Tomorrow's C-SPAN "Washington Journal" on National Broadband Plan
(previous | next)

Just FYI.. Tomorrow morning's "Washington Journal" program on C-SPAN will be devoted to a discussion of the Federal Communications Commission's new National Broadband Plan. I've been invited to appear on the show and I'll be up against Art Brodsky of Public Knowledge. The program starts around 8:30 am EST.

Also, here's the link to the audio (click "Listen" in upper left hand corner of that page) from today's Diane Rehm Show on NPR featuring a debate between me and Ben Scott of Free Press on the FCC's plan. It featured call-ins and among the callers were Rep. Cliff Sterns and frequent TLF commenter Brett Glass. They both expressed some reservations about the FCC plan.

Your program this morning concerning broadband access never even once addressed the disk based satelite communication answer.
Cable companies are supported by FCC and are major contributors to Washington politicians. High speed internet access in remote areas of US has an easy solution. Use satelite communication, no wires, no poles, no wall mounted wires.
Cable industry has been holding back modern communication technology for years. Politicians love the cable industry due to their wealth.
