Before you go to tonight’s FCC hearing at Town Hall—4pm-11pm, 1119 Eighth Avenue—to speak truth to power, drop science, and make it plain about FCC Chairman Kevin Martin’s ill-considered proposal to lift prohibitions against cross ownership in the media—check out Reclaim the Media’s primer on the issues.
Martin gave little notice for the meeting (it was announced last week). Don’t let his attempt to short circuit turn out work. See you after work.
UPDATE: Governor Gregoire is testifying at 4:15. The Governor? Man, the last time I went to one of these FCC hearings it was mostly just a bunch of activists—one dressed up in a cardboard TV box. Sounds like tonight’s going to be a deal.
