Rock Bands, Interest Groups Speak Out on Media Priorities

Dec 18, 2008  •  Post A Comment

A broad coalition of public-interest groups is joining Pearl Jam, R.E.M. and a major union in urging President-elect Barack Obama to put the public interest first in appointing new members of the Federal Communications Commission and a new White House Chief Technology Officer.
“We urge you to select strong proponents of the public interest who will embrace and enact the policy principles you made on the campaign trail to shape the future of the media,” said the letter.
It cites proposals to maintain an open Internet, promote universal and affordable broadband, diversify media ownership, create a new generation of public media and ensure open government.
The letter, which seeks similar priorities for the new appointees to the Federal Trade Commission and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, was signed by more than 100 groups, unions, bloggers and technology leaders.
