The FCC is seeking public input as they formulate a
national broadband strategy. They are seeking public comments until
July 8th –
The media reform advocacy group Free Press recently released a paper: Dismantling Digital Deregulation: Toward a National Broadband Strategy . The paper argues that America’s broadband failure is rooted in poor policy decisions made by the FCC. Free Press believes the FCC must learn from their past mistakes in order to create a national broadband strategy that finally delivers fast, open and affordable Internet to everyone.
We'll hear from Free Press' Campaign Director Timothy Karr.
On June 10th we read in the Kansas City Star that former U.S. Representative Karen McCarthy is suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and is now living in a area nursing home. We'll repeat part of an interview McCarthy gave to Tell Somebody last summer where she explains how she arrived at her decision to vote "no" to the bill giving Bush the green flag to invade Iraq.
Tell Somebody is a weekly public affairs program airing at 6pm Central Time Tuesdays on 90.1 FM KKFI in Kansas City, Missouri, streaming live around the world at www.kkfi.org. You can subscribe to the podcast for free at the iTunes store.
