Party with the FCC tonight

Posted by David Postman

The FCC will hold a hearing in Seattle tonight on media ownership. The commission has scheduled seven hours for taking testimony from the public and hearing from panels of experts. The hearing will be at Town Hall, beginning at 4 p.m. I heard commissioner Jonathan Adelstein on the Dave Ross show Thursday and he said they'd stay until everyone had their say. At Crosscut, Chuck Taylor says, "Could be the best party in town."

Also at Crosscut, O. Casey Corr writes about FCC Chairman Kevin Martin. Adelstein, a Democrat, talked a lot about Martin, a Republican, on the Ross show. He said that Martin forbids him from talking to FCC staff about media ownership issues. He said FCC reports that back stronger rules for media concentration are essentially covered up the commission.

You can see the agenda here. The FCC will stream audio of the meeting at its Web site.
