The presidential candidates on FCC-related issues

Jan 27, 2008 5:57 am
Lasar's Letter on the FCC is constantly updating this page charting all the presidential candidates stands on various media issues. Interesting notes:

*The Democrats all support net neutrality; Ron Paul is against it; others have no opinion.

*John "Edwards says he will lift restrictions on Low Power FM radio, making it easier for applicants to get licenses."

*"Paul is strongly critical of the provisions of the Patriot Act that have been used to justify surveillance of the e-mail and phone calls of Americans, and has attempted to overturn the law."

Curiously not mentioned is Senator John McCain's co-sponsorship of LPFM bills. But this is the best site online we've seen comparing the various candidates positions on a variety of media issues that may inform your decision. Common Sense also has a comparison chart here, and Broadcasting & Cable have a Q&A here.
