FCC Commissioner Blows The Whistle on His Own Agency

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai brought people’s attention to a planned FCC study to study U.S. newsrooms and warned about its First Amendment implications. Pai joined Greta Van Susteren on Thursday to speak out further, saying there is a danger in giving the government oversight of a free press. It’s not the FCC directly conducting the study, it’s an outside contractor, but these researchers will be going, at the behest of the regulatory agency, into newsrooms to “figure out why they cover the stories that they do,” Pai explained, and he said he went public because he was “concerned about what this implicated for our First Amendment values.”
