FCC Lost its way - Big media consolidation win

Hi, For those of us who don't want a few big companies deciding what we see, hear, and read in the news, it's a bad day.
The Bush-appointed FCC just voted to loosen media ownership rules so media titans like Rupert Murdoch can swallow up more local news outlets. They did this despite a huge public outcry--when the FCC asked for public comments, 99% opposed media consolidation!

The last thing our democracy needs is fewer independent media voices and more news outlets like FOX. Congress has the power to reverse this rule change, and I just signed this petition asking Congress to do that. This issue is very important. Can you join me at the link below?

Lies, Damn Lies, and Bushisms

Crooks and Liars » George Bush says he got the new NIE report last week: Oh, really?

When did he see that NIE report? A couple of weeks ago? Um, no. October 17 at the latest. How many lies does it take to impeach the man?
