NPC Newsmaker: The Next Round Of FCC Consolidation Rules: The Death Knell For The Community Voice And Informed Community Journalism?

WASHINGTON, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The FCC's ongoing relaxation of media consolidation rules allowing large corporations to own more media outlets – with another round of similar rulings expected in the next few weeks - has already resulted in the closing of many local TV and radio stations across the country, the loss of thousands of jobs for journalists and the muddling of the kind of diverse and objective reporting an informed electorate needs to fairly understand government actions and act as responsible citizens and voters.
