STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER MIGNON L. CLYBURN

REGARDING AWARD OF CONTRACT FOR LITERATURE REVIEW

“I am very pleased about the selection of University of Southern California’s
Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism as the chosen vendor for the FCC’s
literature review on the critical information needs of the American public.
I commend the Chairman and the Commission on this exploration and beginning the
process of determining what barriers, if any, may exist in providing content and services to
American communities. This is squarely in line with the Chairman’s commitment to the FCC
working as a fact-based, data driven agency.
I am optimistic and confident that through this study, the Commission will be able to
more effectively meet its statutory and judicially mandated obligations, and I very much look
forward to the results of the research.”
