Bloomberg TV announced that FCC Chair Kevin Martin will be on Money & Politics tonight at 9pm ET. And for those keeping score, yes, starting today I’m including Bloomberg info, when I can find it, on ICN…
Tonight on BLOOMBERG TELEVISION®, an interview with Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin. This will be Martin’s first interview since today’s FCC vote allowing companies to own a newspaper and a television/radio station in the same city. The entire interview can be seen on tonight’s “Money & Politics.”
Money & Politics airs everyday at 7pm ET and is repeated at 9pm ET.
PETER COOK: I’m Peter Cook in Washington. It’s been a very busy day in the world of Money & Politics. Major action today from Congress, the Fed, and the Federal Communications Commission that will all have an impact on company bottom lines. We begin with a controversial FCC vote to ease media ownership limits. On a party-line three-to-two vote, the commission agreed today to Chairman Kevin Martin’s plan that allows media companies to own a newspaper and a radio or TV station in the nation’s top 20 markets. In pushing this plan through, Martin argued the media landscape, since the cross ownership ban was put in place back in 1975 has changed. He dismissed criticisms from members of Congress from both parties and from the commission’s two Democrats who argued the rulechange would hurt the public interest.
(Soundbite) Michael Copps/FCC Commissioner: “Everywhere we go, the questions are the same. Why are we rushing to encourage more media-merger frenzy when we haven’t demonstrated, when we haven’t addressed the demonstrated harms caused by previous media-merger frenzy?”
