Comments on: FCC: There might be something amiss in media Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: dr burke Fri, 30 Oct 2009 23:54:48 +0000 And I think, the e-newspaper e-readers will have to offer wifi or 3G built in. or maybe freeing up some of that spectrum just vacated by tv, will allow news papers to broadcast their news media over the airwaves and have the e-newspaper with an FM receiver to receive news and maybe even a radio station, with flat panel speakers built in. If the Government supports wide spread usage for e-newspapers transmission, then this will encourage news media to switch over to the new technology.

and vide in color, that local people will start to leave the internet for local news. And
I think if e-newspapers offer to give subscribers free e-readers, for a 2 year subscription, people will go for it. Now, the newspaper industry is caught in between
the old technology of paper and the new technology of e-readers. But, e-readers are
coming down in price and are becoming more useful. It’s just a matter of time.

What’s growing in this downturn? Small blogs and team operations that scratch together little revenue.

What’s shrinking? Large media operations.

And where’s the FCC’s focus? Large media organizations that are interested keeping the start-up rabble in check.

Unless that FCC has a plan that will actually help neighborhood bloggers, small start-ups, neighborhood newspapers that continue to ink …

If the FCC acts to help one sector, another will suffer.
