Public Knowledge Saddened at Media Access Project Closure

Media Access Project (MAP) announced this morning it will cease operations on May 1.

The following is attributed to Gigi B. Sohn, president and CEO of Public Knowledge:

“We are sad to read the announcement of the Media Access Project suspending its operations.  Through the years, MAP has provided an invaluable voice for the public interest on a range of issues, including the public responsibility of broadcasters, to media ownership and, in more recent years, many of the most prominent policy disputes of the Internet age.  

“MAP staffers are, and were, valued colleagues. The organization has provided opportunities for a wealth of talented and dedicated advocates, PK Legal Director Harold Feld and PK COO Brooke Rae-Hunter among them.

“Obviously, MAP's closing also resonates with me on a very personal level. I worked at MAP for ten years and I consider Andy Schwartzman my mentor. I hope and believe that he will continue to be an important advisor to the field that he helped to build.”
