Stop the FCC

On June 2, the Federal Communications Commission lifted restrictions on media ownership that allowed big media companies to get much bigger. Since then, hundreds of thousands of Americans have contacted Congress to oppose media monopoly. But big media lobbyists are also hard at work -- they know that if the FCC's new rules stand, it could mean that the conglomerates they work for will gain greater control our access to news and entertainment. We need to fight back. That's why we're telling Congress:

"Congress should roll back the entire FCC rule change and work to make the media diverse, competitive, balanced, and fair."
Please join us below. We'll send your comments to your representatives in Congress at important times during our campaign and feature them in a press conference on Wednesday, September 10th.

A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to key leaders in Congress.

YOUR PETITION LETTER

TO: (Your Representative and Senators)
FROM: (Your Name and Email)
SUBJECT: Roll Back the Entire FCC Rule Change
__________

Dear (Senator or Representative's name),

(Your personal note)

I urge you and your colleagues in Congress to promote a diverse, balanced, and competitive media. Please roll back the entire FCC rule change, including the provisions which allow newspapers to own TV stations and vice versa ("cross ownership").

We allow media companies to use the airwaves in exchange for their assurance that they're serving the public interest, and it's the FCC's job to make sure that's so. Please hold the FCC to its mandate and oppose the rule change.

Sincerely,

(your name)
(your address)
