Description - American Broadcast Regulation and the First Amendment by Charles H Tillinghast
American Broadcast Regulation and the First Amendment: Another Look is a history of federal regulation of U.S. broadcasting. In this book, Tillinghast explores the paths by which the broadcasting industry reached its current state of affairs and hypothesizes about the possibilities and dangers broadcasting presents for the future. The book explains how two important broadcast law cases, NBC versus U.S. and Red Lion Broadcasting Co. versus FCC, affect the industry and our First Amendment rights. Tillinghast also covers two major victories in the movement to deregulate broadcasting -- the elimination of the fairness doctrine in 1987 and the adoption of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 -- and calls for restoration of a revised fairness doctrine.
