Blog #3

Free Press is a non-profit organization that is setting out to bring media reform to the United States. This organization reports on countless media concerns including net neutrality and media policy updates. Free Press’s purpose for striving for media reform is the apparent interference of government and corporate giants. The book talks about the portion of the Constitution that states that government shall have no control over the press. This is exactly what Free Press is striving to achieve once again. Our media has become biased and controlled. Our only source of news and information is what is allowed to be aired on the radio, television and internet. While the internet is slightly more loose in its restrictions, the rapid control of the internet by large ISP’s is going to bring those reigns of control in much tighter on the internet. Free Press is an organization that is focusing on making the people aware of these issues and giving us the tools to make a difference for freedom of press.

    Kendra, this is a good summation of Free Press’ focus and you do bring up an issue relevant to the chapter and the organization, but please add a quote from the chapter and include a question for Free Press. You can either re-post or make the additions in a comment. Thanks!

    “The possibility of some internet content receiving preferential treatment, while other content is slowed or blocked, has raised concern among policy makers and public interest advocates” (Ch. 3, pg. 89). This issue has definitely caught the attention of Free Press.

    QUESTION: In relation to raising awareness of net neutrality, how can the general public begin to join in the efforts of getting a policy put into place that would ensure net neutrality for generations to come?
