Now is a good time to become familiar with Jonathan Adelstein and Michael Copps. They are in Seattle today for the Federal Communication Commission hearing at Town Hall tonight.
Copps was the focus of The Seattle Times Close-Up page on Thursday and will be answering questions from readers on seattletimes.com today from 11 a.m. to noon. Copps wrote an excellent op/ed for the Democracy Papers in September.
Adelstein had a strong op/ed about tonight's media ownership hearing in Thursday's Times. I had a wide ranging interview with him in September that was turned into a podcast for the Democracy Papers. The interview can be found on the Democracy Papers site. It is the next to last item under the podcast heading on the right side of the page.
