Video: FCC's Copps blames media consolidation -- and his agency -- for state of TV news

Entertainment reporter Joe Flint says Federal Communications Commissioner Michael Copps blasts the state of television news in a speech he's giving Thursday at Columbia University's School of Journalism. In his remarks, Copps says the media is falling far short when it comes to serving the public. He blames media consolidation -- and the FCC itself -- for allowing that to happen.

His solution? Copps wants to toughen the renewal process for television stations, and he wants them to commit to covering more debates and issues-oriented programming during election years. He also wants stations to be more in touch with the communities they serve. Read Joe's blog post here.
