Recommendation: Public Affairs and Political Programming

Too many vital issues and perspectives of importance to the nation remain unexpressed and unexamined. Digital broadcasters should be required to use the new power of digital transmission to expand the number of perspectives expressed over the public airwaves. We recommend one hour of public affairs programming every day per channel with at least an equal emphasis on local issues and needs, including free and fair political discussion. Such programming should air in visible time periods during the day and evening. News shows should not be used to satisfy this public affairs programming requirement.
