CRE Localism Testimony
In testimony before the FCC, CRE explained that a highly publicized study on localism attributed to Commission staff does not meet Data Quality standards and cannot be used or relied on by the agency. CRE’s testimony before the FCC’s Localism hearing in Portland, ME was based on a detailed analysis of the study, “Do Local Owners Deliver More Localism? Some Evidence From Broadcast News,” which illustrated its Data Quality deficiencies including a lack of supporting data and use of an arbitrary definition of localism and an arbitrary methodology for measuring localism.
