Genachowski Says Regulation of Broadcast Content Still Justified; to Pursue Inquiry Into State of Journalism

Jul 31, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski tells Broadcasting & Cable that he still sees a need for broadcast content regulation.

Genachowski said that, with millions still relying on over-the-air TV, "the core justifications for commission action in this area are unchanged," B&C says.

He also told the trade publication that the FCC will work through its backlog of indecency complaints and that the FCC will proceed with the inquiry into the state of the journalism industry initiated by his predecessor, acting Chairman Michael Copps.
