Action Alert: Help Veto the FCC's Big Media Handout

The Senate introduced legislation on Wednesday that would reverse the Federal Communications Commission’s decision to let the nation's largest media companies swallow up more local and independent news outlets.

Congress has just 60 legislative days to pass this bill. By acting now, you can help make it happen:

Tell Your Friends: Veto Big Media

Companies like News Corp. and Sinclair already have shown their willingness to abuse the public trust for political ends. During this election year, when diverse, quality and unbiased information is essential for voters, we cannot allow Big Media to silence even more independent voices.

It’s our turn to use our collective grassroots power to stop Big Media and make sure that our airwaves are used to better serve the public.

Onward,
