Wireless Radiation TV NewsWhat TV Network Provided the Most News Coverage about Wireless Radiation Issues in the Past Year?

During the past year, CBS and its affiliates provided the most television news coverage about wireless radiation and health reporting on safety issues related to cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, and smart meters. Besides CBS national news, almost all major CBS stations ran stories including stations in New York, Boston, Washington, DC; Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

CBS covered the year's two major wireless policy developments: the International EMF Scientist Appeal and the Berkeley cell phone "Right to Know" ordinance.

With the recent publication of Norm Alster's book,"Captured agency: How the Federal Communications Commission is dominated by the industries it presumably regulates," it is time for CBS 60 Minutes to do an investigative story about why our government has not updated the obsolete wireless regulations adopted in 1996 that fail to protect the health of the American public.

News coverage on the other major networks paled in comparison. Are advertisers and the wireless industry influencing television news coverage of wireless safety issues?
