FCC could get ownership rules wrong again, says commissioner

May 22, 2005

The good news, FCC Commissioner Michael Copps said, is that the task of rewriting media ownership rules is headed back to the FCC for reconsideration. The bad news, he added, is that the rules are coming back to “the very same folks who dreamed them up in the first place! They screwed it up once. Believe me, they’re 100 percent capable of screwing it up again.”

In a speech last week to the Free Press Media Reform Conferences in St. Louis, Copps said he was worried that there was going to be a lot of pressure brought on the FCC “to write new rules, write them quickly, and write them inside the commission, far away from the sunlight of public participation and public input.”
