Broadcasters should be leasing the public's digital spectrum!
Lease the public's digital spectrum to broadcasters and the telecom industry instead of giving them free use!!! And then use the annual income to pay for more independent public broadcasting!! Give the people a voice and medium to receive news and information free from the Corporate News Media (and the on-slaught of big money campaign ads that the Supreme Ct has just approved).
Verizon & AT&T have a monopoly and expensive rates for minimum service plans or triple plays.
