Expanding Free Expression in the Marketplace: Broadcasting and the Public Forum

Synopsis

This book evaluates whether various theories of free expression expand opportunities for individual free expression. In order for free expression to truly exist, there have to exist forums, both in theory and practice, in which individuals have an opportunity to express themselves. This book examines the legal history of the forums in which Americans have expressed themselves: the traditional public forum, nontraditional public forums, and the broadcast spectrum. The book includes a proposal for the government provision of broadcast access channels.
