Congress Must Reverse the FCC


Earlier today, FCC chairman Kevin Martin voted (with two Republican Commissioners) to loosen media consolidation rules. This despite overwhelming public opposition and condemnation by various members of Congress during recent hearings on Capitol Hill.

The FCC voted to lift the longstanding ban on "newspaper-broadcast cross-ownership."

In 2003, the FCC attempted to do exactly the same thing and was reversed after a huge public outcry led to congressional action.

26 Senators from both parties have already announced their intention to nullify FCC actions.

Please contact your local members of Congress and demand action to reverse this bad decision. This is an early Christmas gift to BIG MEDIA.
