The selected readings in this week’s book tied together many of the themes discussed in previous weeks and in class discussions. However, I found Chapter 5 difficult to read and understand due to an influx of unfamiliar jargon and approach.
What I found most significant in this reading was the absolute need for transparency, oversight, and accountability organizations to monitor the actions of media firms. This would avoid clandestine operations such as Comcast’s affair with BitTorrent. This article made evident the dangers within the global media system, and the importance of taking action.
Furthermore, I agree with the idea of non-discriminatory policies and in providing equal access and price-controls.
