We actually have a very good chance of overturning decades of corrupt media policy making in this country
Take 3 Minutes to Stop Media Monopoly: Phone It In.
A message from Robert and John Nichols:
launching a movement for a truly democratic media system.
A victory here and now will be of immeasurable value.
Call your Congressional representatives and demand that
they support the
rollback. One phone call from a constituent is more
effective than scores
of email petitions.
Go to www.mediareform.net/stopthefcc and follow the easy
steps or read on

Big media is getting bigger and our democracy is at
As you know, a month ago the FCC dramatically relaxed
regulations, suffocating the cornerstone of American
democracy: a free,
fair, and open public debate.
Because one million Americans raised their voices
against the FCC decision,
the Senate Commerce Committee recently sent a bill to
the Senate floor for

"Roll Back the FCC" legislation now has 38 supporters in
the Senate (out of

The House bills have the overlapping support of 65
cosponsors on HR 2462 and
146 on HR 2052. We need 216 for passage.
The www.mediareform.net/stopthefcc website will tell you
if your members of
Congress are currently supporting rolling back the FCC.
If they are
supportive co-sponsors, then thank them for their
support and ask that they
keep the bill alive. If they not a co-sponsor, ask them
to become one.

Please send this email along to anyone else you think
might be interested in
having a healthy democratic media system.
