STATEMENT OF FCC COMMISSIONER AJIT PAI
ON THE CANCELLATION OF THE CRITICAL INFORMATION NEEDS STUDYI am pleased that the FCC has canceled its Critical Information Needs study. In our
country, the government does not tell the people what information they need. Instead, news
outlets and the American public decide that for themselves. I look forward to working with my
colleagues to identify and remove actual barriers to entry into the communications
industry. This newsroom study was a distraction from that important goal.
