Library of Congress, Washington, DC. Congressional Research Service.
The Congressional Research Service prepared this compilation of articles and bibliography to facilitate student research on the regulation of mass media in the United States, the 1979-80 intercollegiate debate topic. The selection of articles reproduced in Section A and the citations chosen for the bibliography in Section B are representative of the wide range of subjects and viewpoints encompassed by the topic. Section B's annotated bibliography is divided into three parts to accommodate the topic. Part 1 contains sources which emphasize the controversy surrounding the regulation of the broadcast media, while part 2 consists of annotated citations drawn from sources dealing with the printed media. Part 3 includes the remaining forms of media, including film, satellites, and data transmission. Two other sections of the book provide instructions on how to secure additional information on the regulation of the mass media, and a list of available government publications that relate to the 1979-80 intercollegiate debate topic.
