(Studio: Aaron Brown) Live interview held with actor Richard Dreyfuss & Parents Television Council's Brent Bozell on the issue of FCC rules for media ownership. [In studio, DREYFUSS - says the media has done a frighteningly bad job in covering this critically important issue; defends "public interest"; criticizes Congressmen for not taking a stand.] [From Washington, BOZELL - says six companies control two-thirds of the TV viewers in America; calls this "star chamber" stuff; states newcomers cannot compete with Clear Channel & Viacom, which control radio; expresses surprise that the FCC commissioners seem unconcerned about the universal opposition to the mega corporations; restates his opposition to six companies controlling the flow of information.]
