issues and recommendations


We want TV that serves the needs of ordinary Americans in their local communities. We want TV that respects family and children. We want TV that treats the issues we care about in a way that's fair and balanced. We think we can ask for these things without violating the First Amendment or encouraging censorship. We have the right to ask for these things because TV, unlike newspapers and cable, uses our public property. . .the airwaves. In fact, to make the transition to digital, TV will use roughly 70 billion dollars worth of our property for free. We want a fair return on the broadcasters exclusive use of this public property. You will find a list of specific recommendations here.
