Split the airwaves 50/50 commercial and non-profit public owned financed by commercial license fees.
In the San Francisco Bay Area we have the SF Chronicle which has reduced it's daily newspaper to a fraction of what it was in the 70's, has more advertising than news, and it's current news coverage is pro-corporate and anti-democratic, filtering out news that makes these entities look bad. My local paper in Oakland, the Tribune, is owned by a corporate chain that publishes 80% of the newspapers in the region. It publishes corporate clone news and is biased toward business interests, throwing locals an occassional bone of information. The local TV and Radio is likewise too much advertising not enough news, music or quality art or entertainment. The exception to the rule is KPFA FM radio and college radio, where there is no advertising or commercial input what so ever. KQED's TV and FM programming is loaded with middle of the road corporatism and advertising all day long. The horror of listening to "Public Broadcasting" pumping us with Chevron's "People Do" is an irony that no one likes.
In essence, unconstitutional corporate personhood rights have facilitated a corporate takeover of our airwaves and this must end if we are to have any democracy.
A 50%/50% split of the airwaves to commercial/non-profit publicly owned, financed by fees assessed to the commercial sector would help bring back the press and media for the people. Investigative journalism, local programming and arts, and international news delivery from other non-profit producers nationally, like DemocracyNow could revitalize our society and help return our democracy.
