As an indicator of the concerns over the ongoing web/media upheaval, the Federal Communications Commission has released a 360-page report on The Information Needs of Communities: The Changing Media Landscape in a Broadband Age. It's available on the FCC's website.

The FCC report follows up on the Knight Foundation's work on the future of journalism, but, understandably, avoids prescriptive remedies for what's seen as a decline in newsgathering resources, especially at the state and local level. It's a weighty tome, but one that PR practitioners ought to be familiar with. The Atlantic offers its own view of the report.
