Harold Feld of the Media Access Project gives us the skinny on a petition by Prometheus et all to the FCC demanding a freeze on translator applications in order to halt the trafficking scam. And, coincidentally, the FCC does it.

The mediageek radioshow is a weekly critical look at our media environment, with a focus on independent media and the people who make it.

mediageek originates Fridays at 5:30 on community radio WEFT ( in Champaign, IL, and is also aired on KQRP in Salida, CA and KRFP in Moscow, ID. Noncommercial radio stations and webcasters are invited to air the mediageek radioshow. Please let us know if you air it.
