CommonCause / FCC Petition

Really, really important: Goes right to the FCC. Michael Powell and the repubs must feel the pressure to hold more hearings and allow diverse spokespersons to participate.
Dear Friend,

Big media companies want to be able to control everything you see, hear, and read. I'm writing to ask you to join me in signing a petition to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC is considering fundamental changes to the media ownership regulations that will affect all of us.

Despite the immense impact of the proposed changes, the FCC has held only ONE formal public hearing on the issue. While the public has largely been unaware and uninvolved in the issue, the nation's largest broadcast companies - which could reap huge benefits from the elimination of these ownership rules - have spent tens of millions of dollars on lobbying and political contributions in Washington.

Join me in having your voice heard by signing this petition. You can sign up at:

How else can you help? Contribute!

Your support is needed in our efforts to educate the public around this very important issue. A contribution will help spread this message around the country and continue our fight against media consolidation.
