by Steven Waldman
Paperback, 465 pages, 2011, $45.00
In 2009, a bipartisan Knight Commission found that while the broadband age is enabling an information and community renaissance, local communities in particular are being unevenly served with critical information about local issues. Soon after the Knight Commission delivered its findings, the FCC initiated a working group to identify crosscurrent and trend, and make recommendations on how the information needs of communities can be met in a broadband world. This report by the FCC Working Group on the Information Needs of Communities addresses the rapidly changing media landscape in a broadband age. Contents: Media Landscape; The Policy and Regulatory Landscape; Recommendations. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
