Stop (Even) Big(ger) Media

The FCC approved new rules that will lead to further media consolidation across America. As if Rupert Murdoch's empire isn't big and poisonous enough. The new rules will further consolidate local media markets -- taking away independent voices and programming in places already short on local news and investigative journalism.

Congress can overturn these rules, but only will do so if We The People demand it. If 100,000 people sign a petition saying no to further media consolidation, Congress will have to listen. Sign the open letter to Congress urging them to stop the FCC and stand with the public interest.

Thanks Spag and Ted
