This Wednesday, March 20th, Reason is excited to host a special luncheon with noted First Amendment attorney Robert Corn-Revere, who represented CBS in its successful U.S. Supreme Court case against the Federal Communications Commission.
"Beyond the Seven Dirty Words: Protecting the Internet and New Media from Content Regulation" is the first of our Freedom in Media series, which seeks to explore the importance of the free-flow of information to our economy and culture. Dramatic changes in technologies for recording, transmitting and sharing information have broken down barriers to the production of content. Meanwhile, our consumption of that content is becoming increasingly fragmented across platforms. Is content regulation desirable or even feasible under such circumstances?
After a keynote address from Robert Corn-Revere, Reason Foundation Policy Analyst Steven Titch will host a panel discussion that will feature questions from the live audience, Facebook fans, Twitter followers, and Google Hangout participants. Panelists include Pete Tucker, journalist and blogger on TheFightBack.org as well as Charles "Chuck Teezy" Stewart of Smack Time Entertainment.
For our DC-area supporters, we have a limited number of seats available on a first-come first-served basis. Lunch will be provided. This event is free of charge. RSVP to Preston Cornish at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unable to attend in person, please join us online for a livestream on Reason TV, beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET. Post your questions on Facebook and via Twitter @reason with the hashtag #FreedomInMedia.
