A few huge media companies already control most of what you see on television, hear on the radio, and read in the newspaper. Now if some of the bureaucrats in Washington have their way, these media behemoths, such as Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. or the New York Times Company, could get even bigger and more powerful.
Right now, the FCC is seeking comments from the public. Let's give them what they asked for, send in your comments and tell the FCC to stop media consolidation.
When a single big media company can own most of the radio and TV stations and local newspapers in town, less attention gets paid to community needs, fewer voices and opinions are aired, and the amount and quality of local news suffers.
Be part of the official record and urge the FCC to preserve media ownership rules that help foster local news competition, ensure diversity, and feed democracy.
