Television Captioning Censorship

Topic: 

Bob Cox points us to an interesting site about the National Association of the Deaf, NAD, and NCD, the National Council on Disabilities, who are protesting the decision-making process regarding which programs receive captioning and which ones do not.

Also, see a list of recently approved and disapproved shows for U.S. Department of Education captioning support here.

Comments

Palm Beach Post published a commentary about this. But where is the rest of the mainstreet press?

Good point - I thought it was worth posting because I was so unaware of there even being a process or an issue of which programs get captioning!

Media librarians also use captioning to catalogue video, so there are many user groups affected by this.
