In 4 days, the Federal Communications Commission could lift a 35-year-old ban preventing corporate thugs like Rupert Murdoch from creating media monopolies. But if we can flood their public consultation now we could save our independent media. Send a message to the right.

*Here are some of the points you can make when drafting your personalized message:

  • Six giant corporations control more than half of what we watch and read everyday -- this is a big threat to our democracy.

  • Lifting the ban on TV-newspaper dual ownership would give media empires like GE and News Corp the final greenlight to toast their competition.

  • Local newsrooms are closing, investigative journalism is collapsing and diverse viewpoints are shrinking from our airwaves.

  • The FCC was created to protect the public voice, not drown it -- we expect them to honor that mandate.
