Local TV News: Not Just Crappy, Also in Violation of FCC Regs | Boing Boing

Local TV news isn’t meeting FCC standards of operating in the public interest. USC study shows just 22 seconds of local gov coverage for every 30 minutes. Humpback whale sightings, celebrity perfume lawsuits cited by stations as examples of “significant treatment of issues facing the community.” Nothing particularly earth-shattering here, but interesting to see blatant disregard for public interest quantified and publicly talked about.
