It’s evident that electronic communication is playing a growing and critical role in our lives. More and more information we get from mass media, the internet, radio, broadcast and cable television, affects and sometimes defines what we know about the world around us. However, commercial cable doesn’t always reflect the concerns or interests of the community it reaches.
- Who speaks for the community?
- Who sees to it that cable benefits the people who pay for it?
- Who ensures that citizens have access to this powerful communications tool?
This important job falls to a volunteer citizen commission and its professional staff, that acts as advocates for the public, called the MHCRC.
