Stop the Presses - Join Free Press for Media Reform!

If you're reading this, you are probably deeply concerned about the direction our media is heading. A number of crucial policy decisions will be made in 2006 that could affect the future of American media for decades to come. Unless the public speaks out now, these decisions will be made by high-priced lobbyists and pliant politicians at our expense.
Fortunately, Free Press is fighting to give people a greater voice in shaping our media system. Please join Conscious Consuming and the hundreds of thousands of others in the fight to make a better media in 2006. Together we will:
* Sound the alarm when the FCC tries again to rewrite media ownership rules and let Big Media control more local outlets in every city.
* Pressure Congress to pass a new Telecom Act that’s better than the old one — which gave us the Clear Channel colossus while handing over billions of dollars in public assets to Big Media.
* Confront the administration’s relentless campaign to silence independent and skeptical journalism.
