Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Some 2,000 US television signals have managed to escape the notice of critics of the Fifth Estate. Hilliard (media arts, Emerson College) and Keith (communications, Boston College) redress this lack of recognition of low-power TV (LPTV)<-->for which the Federal Communications Commission has actually issued more licenses than for full-power TV<-->by discussing the purpose of this programming in the process of trying to upgrade its broadcast standing; and exploring the evolution and legal status of this "neighborhood" or "guerilla" medium reaching audiences from new immigrants to right-wing groups. Appends a license renewal application, fact sheets, and FCC petition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
