An ACLU guide to cable television by Fred Powledge( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proceeding from the hypothesis that cable television (catv) is one of the most significant developments in modern America, this booklet examines the medium itself and then devotes special attention to the capacity of catv to serve the First Amendment interest in diversity of expression. The opening section deals with the size and growth of cable, its technical aspects, its potential for producing diversity of programing, dialogue, and two-way communications, and its ability to develop a sense of community and to build bridges between city and suburbs. Following this, the focus is put upon matters of civil liberties, including the status of cable as a common carrier, the regulation of catv, and system ownership and rates. Also discussed are the questions of censorship and liability, fairness and equal time, privacy, franchising, and employment and advancement practices. (Pb)
