I must have missed this

  • I must have missed this one, being caught up in the LPFM fight: Current Magazine reports that the Sen. Kent Conrad successfully blocked the passage of a bill that would have put religious broadcasters on par with educational non-profit brodcasters. This would have meant that religious brodcasters would not have to prove the public interest of their programming to the FCC, making religious programming de facto in the public interest. The effect would be to further enable the spread of religious stations (mostly satellite run operations) at the expense of new community stations.
