Media Law and Policy is a topic most people don't realize is out there. With the media these days being at the top of the interests chain, someone there to watch over and reason through the good and bad is quite necessary. So, I ask myself, "Who controls/monitors the media?" Tuesday in class, we discussed many organizations that protected the media in several different aspects. One struck me instantly, the Federal Communications Commission. This organization regulates interstate and international communication circuits. Recently, the FCC has built a plan, a National Broadband Plan costing $350 billion. The plan would be to implement internet access nationwide, providing internet to over 100 million people. The National Broadband Plan has many different sections, one particularly, Public Safety. I chose to explain this aspect of the monstrous plan because it indeed shares a large part of monitoring the media. Public Safety in the National Broadband Plan has been created to enhance emergency communication lines, build a safer place to live, and improve issues with cybersafety. I have thoroughly enjoyed studying on the subject of law and policy of the media. Because of the FCC, I now understand and see it all on a large scale. Media is everywhere, all around us! Without it life as we know it would not be the same. Appreciate the FCC, the National Broadband Plan, and Public Safety because without them, who would control/monitor the media?
