A Modest Proposal to Reform the Federal Communications Commission.
The author states that the Federal Communications Commission is overidentified with the industry it regulates and calls for remedial action. Various proposals are examined and discarded. Basically, what is said to be needed is a structural change--reducing the number of commissioners from seven to five, each appointed for a single term of 15 years. Employment in the broadcast industry would be forbidden for 10 years afterwards. Procedural reforms and staffing changes are also suggested. (SK)
