FCC X Files: Ann Toback Writers Guild of America

The FCC is currently

looking at the rules on media ownership. These rules determine how many

radio, TV and newspapers one company can own in one city. The Media

companies want these rules relaxed so they can own more

stations/newspapers in the same city. Ms. Toback talks about the

negative effects on newsrooms by the consolidation of television news

stations. Ms. Toback cites examples in New York and Los Angeles. To

file a complaint/comment on this issue with the FCC, go to fcc.gov
