Competition in Radio and Concert Industries Act

By liz

So the FCC is in the hands of Powell Jr and never before in history has a country seen the media consolidation we currently have in the US. So what's on the radio? Same crap, every station. Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) is looking to do something about it by reintroducing the Competition in Radio and Concert Industries Act.

"Since originally introducing this legislation in June 2002, I have seen a groundswell of interest both in Congress and among artists, consumers, independent radio stations, and local promoters in restoring fairness to radio. My legislation will reduce concentration and crack down on anti-competitive practices, such as the new 'pay to play' system."

Cheers Russ!
