Our Deepest Gratitude to Media Access Project

The public interest community and media reform movement suffered a major body blow today, when the Media Access Project (MAP) announced it will suspend operation next month. I personally have looked to my friend and colleague Andy Schwartzman for leadership and guidance on media policy issues for more than three decades. Under his tenure, MAP has been at the forefront of major telecommunications and media policy fights, always with the mission of representing the public interest. No one can match Andy’s eye for legal talent and public interest advocates, as evidenced by the rich talent pool of MAP alums. This is an important part of MAP’s legacy – one that ensures that its great work and leadership will live on.

Thank you, Media Access Project, and especially you, our dear friend Andrew Jay Schwartzman.
