Stop Big Media

Title

Stop Big Media

Description

The “Stop Big Media” campaign of 2006 targeted the Federal Communication Commission, seeking the commission to reevaluate the trend of media consolidation in the age of digital media. Mergers in media ownership ignited concerns that fewer figures and organizations controlled mass media, compromising the journalistic integrity and variance in the publication of news stories, with implications for democracy. Earlier, Congress had passed and Bill Clinton signed into law, the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which led to a wave of corporate media concentration, less diversity, and higher prices for consumers.
