Executive Director Ted Mermin Weighs in on FCC Robocall Ruling on Bay Area News

June 13, 2019
Last week Center Executive Director Ted Mermin appeared in a KTVU Fox 2 news segment to comment on the recent FCC ruling permitting phone companies to use robocall-blocking technologies. While the ruling may lead to a reduction of such calls, Mermin also pointed out the law’s shortcomings, namely that it does not require companies to implement these blocking technologies but rather simply encourages it. The segment can be viewed here.
Mermin also discussed the ruling on SF Spanish-lanuage radio station KIQI.  The clip, which can be listened to here via the media player on the right, aired on June 10 around 9:28 a.m.
