Will the FCC aid Big Brother?
May 08, 2003
The Federal Communications Commission is planning on

authorizing sweeping changes to the American news media. On June 2, the change of rules could allow your local TV stations, newspaper, radio stations, and cable provider to all be owned by one company.

This means that NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox could have the same corporate parent. The resulting concentration of ownership could be deeply destructive to our democracy.

Congress is supposed to guard against monopoly power. But the upcoming rule change could change the landscape for all media and usher in an era in which a few corporations control your access to news and entertainment.

Please join me in asking Congress and the FCC to support a diverse, competitive media landscape. Show your opposition by filling out the form on the MoveOn.org website.
