How to Talk Back to Your Television Set.
Johnson, Nicholas
Nicholas Johnson is a member of the Federal Communications Commission. In this book he discusses the growing concentration of ownership and control of the mass media in the hands of a few people. He deals with the questions of corporate censorship, and the present and potential impact of the mass media on race relations. The larger issues posed by our developing communications technology are discussed. He surveys the growth of cable television as an alternative to over-the-air broadcasting. In the book's closing chapters he proposes specific changes in broadcasting, some of which must be brought about by Congress or the Federal Communications Commission and some that can be effected by the actions of individual citizens.
