Rep. Walden Names Communications Subcommittee Members | John Eggerton | Broadcasting & Cable | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

House Energy & Commerce Committee chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) has named the new Republican members of the Communications Subcommittee. The committee has jurisdiction over the FCC and communications issues, though it shares some oversight with Judiciary.

Walden said one of the first priorities of that and other subcommittees will be "rolling back unnecessary regulations and downsizing a bloated federal bureaucracy." Walden, a former broadcaster, is no fan of the FCC local's broadcast ownership rules, for starters.

Excerpt:
{A research note from UBS concurred that the M&A environment will likely change. The firm added that “secular changes in technology and usage would lead to the convergence of the cable and wireless industries.” Deregulation could mean “fewer reporters, viewpoints and choices,” said Craig Aaron, CEO of Free Press, according to USA Today. Free Press in part advocates against media consolidation. “The last thing we need is policies encouraging more concentration,” Aaron said. “We need outlets competing with each other for scoops and viewers, not a single dominant voice.”}

A lawyer rewrote Instagram’s terms of use ‘in plain English’ so kids would know their privacy rights | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Amy B. Wang writes: "It’s no secret that teenagers love social media.

 

Members of “Generation Z” can spend up to nine hours a day sharing photos on Instagram, consuming “content” on YouTube and talking to friends on Snapchat. (Just don’t ask them to get excited about Facebook.)

 

But how much do these teens understand what they’ve agreed to give up when they start an account with those sites?

 

Probably very little, according to a report released last week — and dense terms and conditions that are “impenetrable and largely ignored” are partly to blame."

MN: Rep Rob Ecklund talks up broadband | Ann Treadcy | Blandin on Broadband

I’m a couple weeks late on this notice – but I happened to notice that even after elections and before the legislative session began, some policymakers (Representative Rob Ecklund) are talking up broadband in the Lake County News Chronicle…

“Right now we need to make sure that we are standing up for working families in every corner of the state,” Ecklund said. “Too many people are struggling to get by because our economy favors the well-connected and the special interests. Workers struggle to find housing near employers, local businesses struggle competing with a global economy that depends on access to broadband, and middle-class families struggle to find jobs that pay a livable wage."

A simple path forward for FCC transparency | Blair Levin & Larry Downs | The Hill

A simple path forward for FCC transparency | Blair Levin & Larry Downs | The Hill | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Last summer, Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John Thune (R-S.D.) criticized outgoing FCC Chair Tom Wheeler for a lack of transparency about Commission proceedings.

In particular, Thune complained that Wheeler had exempted himself from the agency’s own rule regarding the disclosure of nonpublic information, a tactic he had used both to shape public debate and silence Republican members of the Commission. The Chairman, Thune said, was once again “utilizing questionable legal authority, while simultaneously trying to dodge public accountability.”

Reaction followed a predictable partisan formula. Republicans largely agreed with the critique; Democrats largely disagreed.

The Republican leadership remains particularly agitated about the 2015 Open Internet proceeding, which evolved substantially after the public comment period closed. What began as a relatively straight-forward response to the D.C. Circuit’s “roadmap” for re-enacting Net Neutrality rules became a complicated final order that “reclassified” broadband. The public didn’t have much sense of what was actually in the 400-page final document until after the controversial vote was taken.

But transparency issues neither begin nor end with Chairman Wheeler. A similar breakdown in communications occurred under Republican tenure, for example, in a 2003 vote to revise the rules under which incumbent telephone companies were required to unbundle and resell access to their facilities.

Partisan sniping aside, leadership of the agency is poised to change hands this month. So now seems the right time to consider how the FCC could conduct its business more effectively.
