Now Playing: Say No to Big Media
I need to pass along this email I received
I feel this is very critical and I recommend you all participate
Hi Mr. Joe Anybody,
Imagine if all the news you saw on television, read in your newspaper and heard on the radio came from the same source. That would be bad for democracy; for arts and culture; and for the free exchange of ideas.
Sadly this is not too far removed from reality; eight of the largest media giants already own 90% of the media market. Furthermore the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering weakening the rules on how many media outlets any one company can own.
Ask the FCC to prevent big media from getting any bigger and to instead encourage more diverse, independent and minority ownership. Then ask your friends and family to do the same by forwarding this email to them.
