Cantwell and FreePress.net want FCC Chair to visit Seattle for hearings on media consolidation

FreePress.net agrees with Sen. Cantwell and says:

Invite FCC Chairman Genachowski to Seattle

“Sen. Maria Cantwell wants FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski to visit Seattle and collect public input on the FCC’s new media ownership rules. … The FCC is considering relaxing the rules that regulate who owns the media. If the agency passes its current plan, one company will be allowed to control newspapers, TV stations and radio stations in cities like Seattle. This would be an outrageous reversal of decades-old policies meant to protect against the corporate concentration of our media.”
