The Impact Of ‘Big Media’ Competition on Local Media


The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB), the Native American Journalists Association and the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) on Friday came together to submit a letter to the House Judiciary Subcommittee supporting the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA).

This, if passed after several unsuccessful bill introductions, would create an antitrust safe harbor allowing news producers to negotiate with digital platforms over the carriage terms of their content.

Tied to the bill’s reintroduction in Congress was a Friday House Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law hearing titled “Reviving Competition, Part 2: Saving the Free and Diverse Press.”

On behalf of the NAB, which supports the JCPA, Graham Media Group President/CEO Emily Barr testified before the Subcommittee.
