AUTHOR

Streeter, Thomas

SUMMARY

In this interdisciplinary study of the laws and policies associated with commercial radio and television, Thomas Streeter reverses the usual take on broadcasting and markets by showing that government regulation creates rather than intervenes in the market. Analyzing the processes by which commercial media are organized, Streeter asks how it is possible to take the practice of broadcastingthe reproduction of disembodied sounds and pictures for dissemination to vast unseen audiencesand constitute it as something that can be bought, owned, and sold. With an impressive command of broadcast history, as well as critical and cultural studies of the media, Streeter shows that liberal marketplace principlesideas of individuality, property, public interest, and marketshave come into contradiction with themselves. Commercial broadcasting is dependent on government privileges, and Streeter provides a searching critique of the political choices of corporate liberalism that shape our landscape of cultural property and electronic intangibles.Streeter, Thomas is the author of 'Selling the Air A Critique of the Policy of Commercial Broadcasting in the United States', published 1996 under ISBN 9780226777221 and ISBN 0226777227.
