Despite the FCC’s sleazy victory in handing more power over to large media conglomerates, you can still work to stop this by having Congress step in to do something.  See info below from stopbigmedia.com:

The Federal Communications Commission 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. Click on the link below to sign the open letter to Congress urging them to stop the FCC and stand with the public interest.
