Abstract

When the only challenge to the Big Three was Dumont, the FCC created a set of regulations popularly known as "the Fairness Doctrine." The Fairness Doctrine was ended in the Reagan administration, but the 2010 elections brought serious discussion of its revival. This panel asks: In a world of five television networks, 500+ cable channels, and the World Wide Web, is there a role for the return of the Fairness Doctrine?
