The FCC will hold a Media Ownership Workshop at the University of South Florida on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 in Tampa, Florida. The workshop will be held in the Marshall Student Center at USF from 3:00 PM to 7:30 PM. For more on this, see the FCC’s press release of April 13, 2010. How is that for short notice? It almost seems like the FCC doesn’t really want to hear from the public, doesn’t it?
Also, please note that the FCC admits that Section 202(h) of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 requires the Commission to review its ownership rules every four years to determine whether any of such rules are in the public interest and that pursuant to Section 202(h), the Commission “shall repeal or modify any regulation it determines to be no longer in the public interest.” You can see this admission, and if you can’t make it to the workshop in person, you can file a comment at this link.
The workshop is open to the public with seating available on a first come, first served basis. It will include a panel discussion with local media executives, a question and answer session, and a public comment session.
I plan to be there to ask why the local “news” media covered up the fact that the Pinellas County Commission and the Hillsborough County Commission lied to the public about tax revenues and expenditures decreasing in order to justify eliminating funding for public access television in both counties. Perhaps the local “news” media didn’t want public access shows exposing the lies which they feed to the public. For more on this, see my short award winning video Welcome to the Twilight Zone Where an Increase is a Cut?!? and don’t miss the links below the video.
I also plan to make a comment. Perhaps I’ll repeat the comment which I made the last time the FCC was in town. I was the first person to speak after the “news” industry shills, and the crowd responded very favorably to my comment to the FCC.
To learn more about the type of information which has been kept from the public by those who control the “news” media and the “educational” system, see Why Does the Government Ignore Our Wishes? and don’t miss my 18 minute speech.
If you take a look, you’ll learn why they get away with violating our rights, abusing their power, and committing horrible crimes. My article on torture includes a link to the U.S. Supreme Court case which explains how one of our stolen rights makes the difference between justice and injustice, between freedom and slavery.
Please spread the news. One thing is certain, those who control the “news” media won’t do it. Perhaps that explains why newspaper subscriptions have dropped so dramatically. After all, who wants to pay for lies and propaganda when you can get them for free on TV?
