Joe Torres Of Free Press On Senate Bill That Would Veto FCC's Vote To Relax Media Ownership Rules

On March 11, 2008, I interviewed Joe Torres, government relations manager for Free Press, about a new Senate bill that would veto the FCC's vote to let Big Media get even bigger.

On December 18, 2007, the FCC approved new rules that could unleash a flood of media consolidation across America. The new rules could mean less diversity of voices, local news and investigative journalism. Congress has the power to throw out these rules -- and if hundreds of thousands of people demand it, they'll have to listen.

Senator Dorgan just introduced a bill (SJ Res. 28) to veto the FCC’s big handout to the corporate media, but Congress must act within 60 legislative days. In 2003, nearly 3 million citizens demanded that the Senate overturn the FCC's last attempt to let Big Media get even bigger.
