Access to the Media Versus Access to Audiences: The Distinction and its Implications for Media Regulation and Policy
Unformatted Document Text:  2 Access to the Media Versus Access to Audiences: The Distinction and its Implications for Media Regulation and Policy Abstract When the issue of speakers’ rights of access arises in media regulation and policy contexts, the focus typically is on the concept of speakers’ rights of access “to the media,” or “to the press.” This right typically is premised on the audience’s need for access to diverse sources and content. In contrast, in many non-mediated contexts, the concept of speakers’ rights of access frequently is defined in terms of the speaker’s own First Amendment right of access to audiences. This paper explores the important distinctions between these differing interpretations of a speaker’s access rights and argues that the concept of a speaker’s right of access to audiences merits a more prominent position in media regulation and policy. This paper then explores the implications of such a shift in perspective for media regulation and policy-making.

Access to the Media Versus Access to Audiences:
The Distinction and its Implications for Media Regulation and Policy
Abstract
When the issue of speakers’ rights of access arises in media regulation and policy contexts, the focus
typically is on the concept of speakers’ rights of access “to the media,” or “to the press.” This right
typically is premised on the audience’s need for access to diverse sources and content. In contrast, in
many non-mediated contexts, the concept of speakers’ rights of access frequently is defined in terms of
the speaker’s own First Amendment right of access to audiences. This paper explores the important
distinctions between these differing interpretations of a speaker’s access rights and argues that the concept
of a speaker’s right of access to audiences merits a more prominent position in media regulation and
policy. This paper then explores the implications of such a shift in perspective for media regulation and
policy-making.
