29 minute listen | January.13.2021

Is a Presidential Commission on the Future of the Internet needed? It is according to Michael Copps, former Commissioner and Acting Chairman of the FCC, who now serves as Special Advisor on Media and Democracy Reform at Common Cause, and has called on the Biden administration to establish one. In this episode, Copps contrasts the regulation of the broadcast industry with the relatively hands-off treatment of internet commerce and cites privacy, disinformation, and antitrust concerns, as well as the impact of social media giants on local news outlets, as supportive reasons.
