  •  Free Press(freepress.net) - FCC Petition: (7+ / 0-)

    I just got an e-mail From Josh Silver, Executive Director- Free Press
    (www.freepress.net)

    He says that Free Press got a copy of the secret study after it was leaked to Congress.

    They already have a Petition to protest FCC action, default text:

    "I am writing to express my strong disapproval of former FCC Chairman Michael Powell's efforts to bury a study that found media consolidation to be harmful to local news reporting..."

    Or make your own message.

    (From webform: Note: Information filed on this form will be publicly available, as FCC comments are considered a matter of public record. The FCC does not accept comments from outside the United States. Comments are due November 21.)
