Help affect the FCC ruling

posted: May 27, 2003 2:01:03 PM

I just wanted to shout out to everyone in the US that this upcoming FCC ruling about media ownership is potentially going to further the cause of monopolistic control by a few corporations of the vast majority of the media.

These companies, in their self-interest no doubt, have not exactly been encouraging their media outlets to cover this story in depth, and it seems like only a minority of Americans are aware that this ruling is something we need to know about and say something about. The ruling is in a few days, on June 2.

A good set of comments about this FCC ruling is available in The Perils of Media Concentration, from J. D. Lasica's blog.

Another good set of comments is also available in's Showdown at the FCC.

Also, I want to suggest you to take a look at Lawrence Lessig's blog and read up on his many comments about this. Please take action today: visiting and joining their campaign seems like a good thing to do.
