Like the headline says… Congress and part of the FCC commission itself wants to halt this but the FCC chairman is trying to ram this through regardless so that he can give media conglomerates an early Christmas present and let them buy up and control more and more media outlets. If you like the idea of a free, independent press, here’s your chance to speak up and do something.
ADDENDA: If you want to see how badly FCC chair Kevin Martin is handling this, look no further than this Bill Moyers report, which details Martin’s extreme arrogance and willful ignorance.
