AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM AL
The FCC and Department of Justice just approved the NBC/Comcast merger -- something that will have dire consequences for years to come.
Please take 2 minutes to watch this important video and get the details. Then, add your name to Al's open letter to the FCC by signing up below!
Itís up to each one of us to do everything we can to stop big corporations from gaining control of our media.
Dear Attorney General Holder and Chairman Genachowski,
We write to urge you to reject the merger of Comcast Corporation and NBC Universal.
This deal would mean higher cable rates and less freedom of choice for American consumers, and it would give a single media conglomerate unprecedented control over the flow of information in America. Whenever the same company owns both the content and the pipes delivering that content, consumers lose.
Already, we have seen that Comcast is not operating in good faith. By imposing a new fee on the company delivering Netflixís online video streaming, Comcast is trying to kill off a competitor. Comcast has also refused to provide the FCC with documents necessary for the review process, and has already named the 43 executives who will take over NBC Universal.
As American consumers, we know a bad deal when we see one. Allowing this merger to proceed could lead to subsequent deals, leaving Americans at the mercy of a few powerful media conglomerates.
Donít fall for Comcastís spin. Donít be swayed by their army of lobbyists. Stand up for American consumers. Stop this merger.
