notes from 10/17

-broadcast is most regulated form of media because it is intrusive
-radio waves come in whether you invite them in or not
-fairness doctrine-makes broadcasters reponsible to cover opposing views
-replaced mayflower doctrine
-as amount of channels on radio and tv was introduced, the fairness doctrine was done away with
-cable as medium doesn't suffer from security-no scarcity and interference
-internet regulation- lots of competition- interference and scarcity don't apply
-regulate internet:
1. rating systems
2.blocking or filtering
3.parental supervision
4.publication restrictions
-self-regulation-don't like it don't view it
smart mobs-people who are able to act together without knowing each other
