    One of the FCC stipulations of the Comcast – NBCU merger was the incorporation of non-profit journalism centers into NBC newsrooms. They are charged with maintaining and increasing local news coverage, the regulation based on the relationship between KNSD-TV and VoiceofSanDiego.org.


    KNSD airs the segments, but really can’t take all the credit for them. They are largely the work ofVoiceOfSanDiego.org, a local nonprofit journalism center that has been sharing news tips, co-producing and supplying content to the station for several years.
    [...]
    Under the terms of the FCC order approving Comcast’s takeover of NBCU, at least half of NBC’s 10 O&Os have to find a nonprofit news center with which to work within the next year. The order cites the KNSD-VoiceOfSanDiego.org alliance as the model for what it would like to see in other NBC markets.
    Proponents of the growing nonprofit news movement are hoping that NBC’s FCC-mandated efforts will bear fruit and encourage other commercial TV stations to seek out nonprofit partners.


    Voice of San Diego is a member of INN (Investigative News Network) which is funded by the Open Society Institute.

    Congratulations: Beck Makes Olbermann‘s ’World‘s Worst’ List | The Blaze

    CONGRATULATIONS: BECK MAKES OLBERMANN‘S ’WORLD‘S WORST’ LIST
    Posted on November 23, 2010 at 9:39am by Jonathon M. Seidl Print »Email »

    When Keith Olbermann re-instituted his “World’s Worst” segment last week you knew it was only a matter of time before Glenn Beck made the list. Last night, Beck took the number two slot.

    Olbermann took umbrage with Beck’s statements Monday that MSNBC “is marked for death” and that the channel will ditch Olbermann in light of its recent sale. In Olbermann’s words, “everything is a conspiracy” and Beck doesn’t know anything about TV:

    This Man Wants to Control the News in America.
    The FCC Wants to Help Him.

    MoveOn.org - Rupert Murdoch and FCC Want To Control American Media

    The above is from a story about how the FCC was helping Rupert Murdoch attain more power in the media industry and that the FCC was helping him by waiving set laws.. Actually it's not a story but an ad by Media Matters, crying their little partisan eyes out.
    I bet the right wing blogs weren't screaming about THAT! Please note the similarities.

    Man, you people sure can spin your bullshit into anything and everything. Are you suggesting that George Soros will now be able to, say, manipulate a sports report on the winner and loser of a soccer match to favor the team he likes best?

    No I suggestion the FCC has some interest in regulating "independant local news " sources following the model of KNSD-VoiceOfSanDiego.org model.
    Im not aware of any right wing or centrist Not for prfit news orgs they all seem to be leftwing.
    I didnt think the news needed to be more leftwing... there must be a point to it ?


    Many of the elements of Copps's proposal suffer from the same defect of subjective values. Copps made it clear that he was discussing "quantifiable" changes in news programming - as opposed to qualitative ones, which would affect the content of coverage, not simply the amount, or the resources devoted to it. But who determines how much local coverage is enough? How "local" does coverage need to be to fall under the definition? Who decides which issues are most important to the community? Copps would say the community would decide, but who reconciles the inevitable disagreements within the community?

    Some of those questions have actually been answered in previous examinations of "localism." Under prior formulations of the concept, "community advisory boards" would hold hearings to decide whether broadcast content satisfied the "needs" of the local community. Though it sounds reasonable, those boards would represent direct government control over radio and broadcast television content.

    These are totalitarian diktats forcing private companies to fund anti-capitalist entities who wish to see their newly conscripted benefactors ended, imposed by a rogue FCC that lords too much power over private agreements between private parties.
