Take Action to Support Independent Media!

Hey, folks.

For those of us who don't want a few big companies deciding what we see, hear, and read in the news, it's a bad day. The Bush-appointed FCC just voted to loosen media ownership rules so media titans like Rupert Murdoch can swallow up more local news outlets. They did this despite a huge public outcry--when the FCC asked for public comments, 99% opposed media consolidation!

The last thing our democracy needs is fewer independent media voices and more corporate control. Congress has the power to reverse this rule change, and I just signed this petition asking Congress to do that. If you agree that this is an important issue, here's where you can add your voice:

Thanks, guys.
