Letter to Senators Re: Relaxing Media Ownership Limits

Fifteen Senators urged the FCC to make public its plans for lifting or relaxing important rules governing ownership limits in the newspaper, radio, broadcast and cable industries before issuing a final rule. This bi-partisan group of Senators agree with the growing number of labor, consumer, public interest, and civil rights organizations that more, not less, information on this critical matter is urgently needed.
