Continue fighting the FCC

The final showdown in the fight against media monopoly is here: it all comes down to how the Senate votes in the next two weeks. On the floor are initiatives that would roll back the FCC's June 2 media ownership rule changes that favor giant media megacorporations over the public interest.

If we can gather 100,000 signatures in conjunction with MoveOn.org by the end of the week, Senator Snowe (R-ME) and Senator Dorgan (D-ND) will host a crucial press event to submit this petition to their colleagues.
Because 2.3 million Americans — conservative and liberal — decried the FCC's lifting of media ownership caps, Big Media lobbyists are fighting back hard. We can't outspend Big Media, but if we can gather 100,000 signatures by the end of the week, we stand a good chance of winning on the Senate floor.
Sign the petition here, now.
