A report in the New York Times reveals that the FCC is moving forward with a secret timeline to vote on sweeping changes to media ownership rules. This is just the most recent in a long series of FCC moves to avoid public scrutiny.
I strongly urge you to call for Congressional oversight hearings on media ownership. Media is a life-and-death issue for me and my community, and the FCC has not done enough to study the impact that more consolidation would have on diversity, localism, and competition. The FCC is poised to make the same mistake it made in 2003, when it ignored unprecedented public outcry, and had to be reined in by the courts.
Help hold the FCC accountable. Please call immediately for oversight hearings on media ownership.
