Forcing the FCC to Act on Conservative Talk Radio
MyFDL readers will remember my talking last year about why we need to Occupy Radio. Walking into any radio station during normal business hours and demanding to see their public files is an empowering way to understand that WE the PEOPLE own the radio airwaves, and that radio stations must serve our needs in order to get a license to broadcast.
Still, while it’s educational and it’s shed light on how much money political ads are pouring into stations’ coffers, it has done nothing to alter the imbalance we find on Talk Radio all over the country. (Better than 90% of the nation can ONLY hear Right Wing Talk on their radio dials.)
But now, with the help of staff and volunteers at Media Action Center Wisconsin, we have launched an action which the FCC cannot ignore.
