The hearing will occur at two venues with an afternoon and an evening session; there will be an opportunity for public testimony at both sessions. It's critical that you turn out for either of these events to let FCC Chairman Kevin Martin and the FCC Commissioners know how the media is serving your community.
This may be the public's last chance to speak out against Big Media before Martin moves to lift the last significant limits to runaway consolidation.
If you live in or around Los Angeles, it's critical that you take the time to come to at least one of the hearings.
