!st Amendment Rights at Risk

"I believe that Net Neutrality is the 1st Amendment issue of our time"
Sen. Al Franken D/Minn.


Senator Al warns us of the threat from corporate media. If these mega-media mergers are allowed eventually they will control the flow of information. It's bad now, really bad but imagine if they controlled not only the news on TV but the internet too. Scary scary stuff.
We have seen what happens when corporations and/or their lobbys dictate policy. We've seen it with banks, pharmaceuticals and energy. Over & over again our government conspires with corporations to keep them happy, all the while sacrificing control either through deregulation or giving them a seat at the table to dictate policy.

We need more like Al.

Here is a link to Al's petition.
