Start your New Year’s Eve with a review of all the madness in our political and public policy arenas when comedian and writer Lizz Winstead stops by “Pam Without Boundaries” Monday morning. Winstead is a no-holds-barred political satirist who views policy-makers and the media that love them through a progressive lens and she’s back in town for her annual review at The Parkway Theater. This year it’s “The Long and Binding Road,” in which Winstead takes you through the year starting with the general election and reminding us how we all got there

The Federal Communications Commission is considering a proposal to relax rules that govern the ownership of media in this country.  Right now, a single company cannot own both a TV broadcast station and a newspaper in the same market.  The change would allow newspapers to own radio and TV stations, a move opposed some advocates of minority ownership of media entities. 

The FCC was supposed to vote on this in December but didn’t.  They’re scheduled to take it up again next year – leaving more time for comment.
