I cannot begin to explain my disdain for big media. Most everything that we fear as a society has it's genesis in a big media story that's sole purpose was to get you to watch the commercials that preceded and followed it or the ads that surrounded it.
Remember these hits of the past....
FLESH EATING BACTERIA
COFFEE CAUSES CANCER
ASIAN BIRD FLU PANDEMIC
WINTER/SUMMER/SPRING/FALL STORM WORST EVER
These stories are usually followed on TV by "We'll tell you all about it at eleven!"
Luckily for some there are alternatives. Small, local station, magazines and newspapers that refuse to stoop to this practice. They hang on...barely....because in the United States we have taken steps to ensure that even small voices have a chance to get heard. Well the FCC has had enough of that...(Mostly cause big media has DEEP pockets and lobbyist like to dump MASSIVE amounts of cash on folks who can change things) So today you "may" have heard..
The FCC approved new rules that will unleash a flood of media consolidation across America. The new rules will further consolidate local media markets -- taking away independent voices in cities already woefully short on local news and investigative journalism.
Congress has the power to throw out these rules -- and if 100,000 people demand it, they'll have to listen. Sign the open letter to Congress urging them to stop the FCC and stand with the public interest.

It ONLY benefits the bottom line of BIG MEDIA COMPANIES and will allow them to spoon feed us their version of the news virtually unchecked! Again I ask you to take action NOW!
