Radio Talkers Debate FCC Crackdown

More than 300 talk radio hosts gathered in New York over the weekend “for the annual New Media Seminar, sponsored by Talkers magazine, to debate how much the FCC’s new vigilance threatens their First Amendment rights. Michael Harrison, the conference organizer, argued that there is no clear line between the sexual innuendo of a Howard Stern and the political speech of a Rush Limbaugh. The legally reckless FCC crackdown poses a deadly threat to the entire radio broadcasting industry.”
