FCC To Study Localism of Radio and Television

From today’s NYT (link):

FCC Chairman Powell: “We heard the voice of public concern loud and clear that localism remains a core concern of our public, and thus, I think it is time the commission address it head on.”

Senator Byron Dornan: “It is a very curious strategy for the chairman to change the rules in a way that will dramatically damage localism and then, nearly three months later, propose a process to examine how those rules might affect localism,”

Commissioner Michael Copps: “This proposal is a day late and a dollar short. … We should have vetted these issues before we voted.”
