MySpace = Big Media

MySpace has censored our ad about the dangers of media consolidation.

Common Cause members have already sent tens of thousands of messages to the FCC – but in this final week before the deadline, we wanted to advertise on high-traffic websites to recruit new activists.  Outrageously, MySpace told us that they “won’t allow that to be shown.” (The ad we submitted is below.)

Maybe MySpace doesn’t want the word getting out about proposed changes to the ownership rules because they themselves are owned by a media conglomerate.  In 2005, MySpace was gobbled up by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., which also owns Fox. 

Their refusal proves our point:  Big Media has too much control over what the public hears, sees and watches — and we need to let the FCC know it.

While MySpace’s decision is disappointing, there is still time to tell the FCC ‘no more media consolidation’ .  But we need to move fast, and we need your input.

1. Go to CommonBlog and vote for the sites where you think we should place our ad. Time is short; we need to get this together in the next 24 hours.

2.  If you are a MySpace user, put our ad up on your own Myspace page, or on any other website or blog you are active with.

Thank you for everything you do.

Sincerely,

The Common Cause Media Reform Team
Lauren Coletta, Dawn Iype, Jon Bartholomew and Celia Wexler
