List of Major Comments in FCC "Future of Media" Proceeding
(previous | next)

I'm keeping tabs on who filed "major" comments (more than a 10-15 pages) in the Federal Communications Commission's "Future of Media" proceeding (GN Docket No. 10-25). As I noted last week, The Progress & Freedom Foundation submitted almost 80 pages of comments (single-spaced!) in the matter, so it's something I care deeply about and will be tracking closely going forward.

Incidentally, the general consensus of those who filed (especially if you count "minor" comments) is fairly overwhelming: Bring on Big Government! Seriously, I only found a handful of comments that object strenuously to government meddling in media markets or that raised concerns about the potential for the State's increasing involvement in the journalism profession. Even many of the affected industries appear to be suffering from a bit of Stockholm syndrome here. Most of them just play up the good things they are doing but barely utter a peep about the dangers of federal encroachment into the affairs of the Press.

Anyway, for those of you who care to track the gradual federalization of media and journalism, I think what you see below is a fairly comprehensive listing of the major filings submitted thus far in the FCC's "Future of Media" proceeding. I'll try to add more as I find them. You might also want to track what was filed in the Federal Trade Commission's workshops on "How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age." Finally, if you care to learn more of this issue, I'm hosting an event on the morning of May 20th to discuss these issues in more detail.
