FCC Pulls Plug on Newsroom Spying Idea


This morning, FTVLive told you about an FCC plan to place "researchers" in U.S. newsrooms, supposedly to learn all about how editorial decisions are made.

We questioned as to why any station would ever let this happen or why it was even being considered.

This afternoon the FCC says they are scrapping the idea and that TV journalists won't be asked about news content and bias.

The FCC says they are working to redesigned the project.

In other words, you will never hear about it ever again.
