Contact the FCC by December 11th

The FCC is planning to ram through media consolidation over the holidays.

From Bill Moyers Journal:
"Minority Media" —

Still, as reported in THE NEW YORK TIMES, FCC Chairman Kevin J. Martin seems determined to push though relaxations on media-ownership rules that currently prevent the same company from owning both a newspaper and a television or radio station in the same city. "I think it is an appropriate time to begin a discussion to complete this rule-making and complete these media ownership issues," Chairman Martin told THE TIMES.

We should not allow this to happen. The open time to voice your concern is very short. The deadline to respond is December 11th.

Please contact the FCC at:
Federal Communications Commission
445 12th Street, SW
Washington, DC 20554
