Lauren-Glenn Davitian, Executive Director of CCTV Center for Media and Democracy in Burlington speaks with Scott Campitelli, Executive Director of RETN about legislation, known as the Telecommunications Act of 2006, now before the U.S. Congress to regulate the telecommunications industry into the explosion of digital technologies. While U.S. communications policy favors competition, the result has been increasing consolidation of the companies that manage the conduit and produce the content. Davitian addresses the challenges faced by those who favor preserving the publicly owned airwaves and rights-of-way used by commercial communications and media networks. Davitian also addresses how congressional bills H.R. 3146, S. 3149 and S. 1504 could change the landscape of media in America and community media as we know it forever.
