You asked for it, and we got it! The only Bay Area hearing on media consolidation. More than 300 people signed a petition demanding an FCC hearing in Oakland, and the FCC listened.
On Friday October 27, two FCC commissioners will be at the downtown Oakland Marriott to hear public comments on how media consolidation affects you. The FCC will consider these comments as they debate new ownership rules that would allow big media corporations to own even MORE of what we read, watch and listen to.
This is a critical opportunity to raise our voices against the corporate media crisis. More than 900 people turned out to an August hearing in L.A. Now it's time to turn out in the Bay.
On Friday October 27, come speak out to stop the monopoly, and demand media diversity and democracy.
Because a just media just can't wait!
