Fight Big Media!!!

If a single media company controls all of the major media outlets in a given area, how can you be sure that the information that you are receiving has not been utterly compromised by the interests of that company? You cannot. While the internet provides fertile ground for independent media, we cannot let media giants to do even more damage to America's media landscape.

There is currently antitrust legislation that prevents extreme media consolidation. However, in the words of ThePetitionSite, "If current protections were lifted, ONE media company could potentially own the major daily newspaper, at least EIGHT radio stations and THREE or more television stations in the same town". Let's not let big media companies bully the FCC into removing laws that exist to protect the integrity of local media. Click here to sign the petition.
