The Federal Communications Commission has long been criticized for sacrificing good public policy on the altar of politics. This panel, held at the National Conference for Media Reform in Boston on April 9, examined the source of the problems with the FCC's decision-making process, and what can be done to restore the public's trust in an agency charged with promoting the "public interest, convenience and necessity."
Panelists: Jonathan Askin, Brooklyn Law School; Malkia Cyril, Center for Media Justice; Christopher Libertelli, Senior Director, Skype; Gigi Sohn, President, Public Knowledge. Joel Kelsey, political adviser of Free Press, served as moderator.
Thanks to Ritchie Wilson of Community Television for the Southern Berkshires for the footage.
