FCC Agrees to Take ‘Fairness Doctrine’ Off the Books [Next: Axe Net-Neutrality]

Under GOP pressure, the Federal Communications Commission has agreed to strike from its books an outdated yet still controversial regulation of political speech on the airwaves known as the Fairness Doctrine.

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said in a letter to a House Republican leader this week that the agency’s effort to identify and eliminate “antiquated and outmoded rules that unnecessarily burden business, stifle investment and innovation, or confuse consumers and licensees” will include a recommendation to delete the Fairness Doctrine.

Did an FCC official do work for PBS simultaneously?

Last week I was freezing my #!$@ off photographing an airway beacon on the continental divide in Montana and like usual, the wind was relentless. PBS is producing a new show, America Revealed that will be airing sometime next year. Part of the show features tranportation in America and for this portion they were featuring Montana’s old airway beacons that are still in operation. Back in the 30′s gas powered airway beacons were lined arcross the country to help pilots navigate their way, specifically the U.S. Mail planes. Year’s later most all of the country had abandoned these antique beacons,with Montana deciding to keep them in operation and maintain them across the state. Local pilots still use them for navigation in the mountains and they are an interesting remenant of aviation’s past. Continue reading

A Christian Business in the Left’s Crosshairs

In the name of tolerance, the anti-Chick-fil-A hawks sneered at the company’s main product as “Jesus Chicken,” derided its no-Sunday work policy and attacked its operators as “anti-gay.” Michael Jones, who describes himself as having “worked in the field of human rights communications for a decade, most recently for Harvard Law School,” launched an online petition drive at http://www.change.org “demanding” that the company disavow “extreme anti-gay groups.” Facebook users dutifully organized witch hunts against the company on college campuses.

Hey FCC: Approve the Comcast-NBC Merger, Already

The House Judiciary Committee, then Chaired by South Carolina Democrat Chairman James Clyburn (whose daughter Mignon is, not incidentally, one of the five FCC Commissioners), convened a June 8th field hearing to examine the deal. But it was Representative Waters running the show – and it got ugly.

Waters said she wanted a “labor-intensive review” by the Justice Department because many independent writers and producers are “afraid to voice concerns” about the pending union of Comcast and NBC “for fear of blacklisting and other retaliation.” Continue reading

Media Marxists No Different: They’re Not Letting the Arizona Crisis to Go to Waste

FCC Chief to Outline ISP Regulation Framework

The proposal would allow broadband companies to impose usage-based pricing, charging customers higher prices if they made heavy use of data-rich applications such as streaming movies. Customers who used the Internet only to check e-mail, for example, could be charged lower prices for using less data. Continue reading
