Where do you get your news and do minorities have enough access to the public airwaves? The Federal Communications Commission wants to know.
First off, the FCC wants to review any studies on media access and ownership, the agency says.
"Section 257 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, mandates that the Commission review and report to Congress on (1) efforts to identify and eliminate regulatory barriers to market entry in the provision and ownership of telecommunications services and information services, or in the provision of parts or services to providers of telecommunications services and information services by entrepreneurs and other small businesses and (2) proposals to eliminate statutory barriers to market entry by those entities, consistent with the public interest, convenience, and necessity," it says.
