Changing media: The future of broadband, journalism, and public media

On May 14, policymakers and media activists gathered at the Newseum in
Washington (DC) to discuss America’s communications future. Keynote
speakers noted that we cannot think about the future of any one media
policy in isolation. For too long, our media system has been shaped by
policies – for media ownership, broadband deployment, public media
funding – that were made in silos, cordoned off from one another. The
different agencies, different laws, and different priorities that have
guided these discussions have left us with a media system that is
disjointed and in crisis.”
