Recently Ajit Pai, one of the commissioners for the FCC’s “Critical Information Needs Study”, voice strong opposition to the project.
Network Telephone Services agrees with Mr. Pai in light of the fact that the study would have required government agents to tour and make inquiries around major network newsrooms across the nation. The FCC agents would be interviewing editors, producers and writers about the process in which editorial decisions are being made. The Agents would then have the authority to determine whether these news agencies were giving enough coverage to what have been defined as “critical information” news segments.
This recently canceled study would presume that a few bureaucratic regulators are experiences enough and morally equipped to determine what information “we the people” deem “critical.”
As an absolute violation of Free Market Principals and the Free Speech Amendment, Network Telephone Services is celebrating the recent cancellation of the proposed Big Brother FCC Study.
