Berman, Paul J.; Oettinger, Anthony G.
The web of relations among present and prospective changes in information systems provides a background against which public policy on information and telecommunication can be assessed. Telecommunication networks, broadcast regulation, and private line services all provide resources for news dissemination to the public. The costs, prices, and politics of telecommunication can be examined to permit review of issues specific to the revival of competition in information dissemination services. (CH)
