Stop Media Consolidation

lottdorgan.jpeg(stacks of petitions in ’03)

FCC 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.

FreePress.org needs 100,000 people to get Congress to reverse the FCC’s rules right now.
