Important Media Petition

http://www.sanders.senate.gov/petition/?uid=76f1a6c9-0caa-47ce-9171-6b62ccbbfd3a

The Federal Communications Commission is considering whether to waive its rule against cross-ownership in the nation's top-20 markets. Increasing the concentration of news outlets limits the public's access to unbiased information about important issues.

Sen. Sanders is urging the FCC to keep rules in place against media conglomerates owning television stations, radio stations and newspapers in the same major broadcast market.
