The Private Agreement and Citizen Participation in Broadcast Regulation.
Fry, Carlton Ford
The kind and extent of public access and control in broadcast commercial television is currently in a state of extreme flux. The history of public groups that exert pressure on television stations' management for changes in programing and policies ranges from small complaints to fully organized license challenges in the courts. However, most of the conflicts between broadcasters and public interest forces are settled privately--out of court. The effect of such private negotiation is not always in the interests of the whole public. Placation of one grievance rather than basic improvement is sometimes the result. Solution to this situation likely lies with the Federal Communications Commission. (CH)
