Lefty magazine Toward Freedom has a good summary of the major challenges in the media justice cause in the article "Who Controls the Media and How to Take It Back" by Megan Tady. It scans some of the most pressing problems with the media today, including: the highly concentrated ownership of mainstream media, the fight for control over the 700 MHZ band of the radio spectrum, the movement for community / municipal broadband access, increasing threats to net neutrality, internet radio’s copyright woes, and building support for low-power FM.
Tady doesn’t go into the tenuous position of PEG (Public Educational Government) channels around the country, who face possible extinction in the transition to statewide franchising of new video services offered by cable and telephone companies.
But other than that, she covers concisely the major battlefronts in the fight for more democratic media structures in the United States. A good piece to share with people who want a quick summary on what the media justice movement is all about.
