Stop media consolidation (and the FCC)!

19Dec07

FreePressFCC Chairman Kevin Martin and his two fellow GOP commissioners approved new rules that will unleash a flood of media consolidation across America. The rules will further consolidate local media markets — taking away independent voices in cities already woefully short on local news and investigative journalism.
In 2003, the FCC tried to do the same thing, but millions of people demanded that Congress reject the FCC’s rules. And they did. It’s time to do it again. We need 100,000 people to get Congress to reverse the FCC’s rules right now.
Sign Our Open Letter to Congress. Then get three of your friends to do the same.
This is about whether we will have access to the information that democracy requires. It is about whether or not we’ll have real news and local voices on radio, television and in the newspaper in your town. It’s about whether the public airwaves will represent our nation’s diversity. Take action now and spread the word!

  1. WE NEED MORE INDEPENTENT VOICES , ESPECIALLY NOW, (AS OUR DEMOCRACY IS CUT OUT FROM UNDER US) NOT LESS. THE US CONGRESS MUST REJECT THE FCC’S NEW RULE FAVORING CORPORATE CONTROL OF MEDIA AND PROTECT PUBLIC INTERESTS / RESPECT THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.
