Dino found this notice and I agree with him that it is an extremely important opportunity to tell the FCC directly that we need more locally controlled media and that in this case we actually need tighter regulations to prevent media monopoly. Milwaukee is not that far away, so if you have the time, please do consider going — Bill
FCC Town Meeting in Milwaukee
Do you want more quality journalism? Are you concerned about the consolidation of media ownership? Do you think important issues don’t get enough air time? Is your community fairly represented in the media?
Here’s your chance to tell the Federal Communications Commission!
On Thursday September 7, FCC Commissioners Jonathan Adelstein and Michael Copps will be in Milwaukee, for a town meeting on the future of media. Members of the public will raise media issues with the Commissioners directly.
This fall, the FCC will consider new media ownership rules that will increase the number of newspapers, radio stations and TV stations that one company is allowed to own. There is no better time to speak out than now!
