Rosenworcel Uses Local Media To Blast FCC Threats To It


Since her return to the FCC in mid-August 2017, Democratic Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel hasn’t exactly taken the silent approach to opposition and dissent of the actions and opinions of her GOP colleagues.

In fact, Rosenworcel’s frustration and anger runs deep on two key matters: a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that could eliminate or greatly change the ownership cap, and the conclusion of Title II classification for broadband, ending “Net Neutrality” rules she helped put in place.

Now, Rosenworcel has taken her fierce words to the press — using a vehicle with staff gearing up for the Feb. 5 start of the GOP and Democratic 2018 Iowa Caucuses.

In short, she says the FCC itself has threatened local news in Iowa, and across the nation.
