Ignore This if you hate local media and favor media consolidation in the USA

The FCC is holding an official media localism hearing in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2007. But the public wasn't notified until the last minute.

In his march to push through sweeping changes in media ownership rules that would allow the biggest media conglomerates to swallow up even more local outlets, FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has again pushed the public out of the process. He gave the public just a week's notice about this vital event and is providing only limited time for public testimony.

Room TW-C305 following open commission meeting
