How come no one ever of hears anything that matters from commercial sponsored media other than more about vaginal mesh, and Johnny-be-Ready for action like you were twenty pills, Progressive insurance and All State and a million drugs greatness and forced details of their harm? That would be because these networks work for the interest of the sponsors profits and not for or to inform citizens in democracy.
First thing mass media fails to report is how the FCC has been used for at least16 years or far more as a place to put commissioners that are no more than payback positions to the very rich and powerful or their family members for campaign donations/support and to protect very high officials from the threat of media ruin or semi-blackout if they fail to clear a path for the media giants to suck money and power from the public. This is the purpose of placing these corrupted commissioners into such positions as things have proved out in the past. Some commissioners have arrived only to succumb to bribes such as great future jobs within in industries we are paying them to watch over for behavior and to create policy in regards to those industries that insures they are acting in the best interest of the citizens of the nation and the Law.
This is one of the most critical commissions we have. The FCC, along with congress controls whether or not we have wide, fair and open freedom of expression and the information sources allowed and available to us that help inform us enough to make wise decisions as individuals and as citizens in a community and nation. Corrupted this commission can allow these industries to twist the truth and block it for corruption of democracy in the name of profits for the few that helped them get the job mainly to ensure they were protected from public knowledge rather than the public protected from misused and delivered media services. A short look at Tom Wheeler's background confirm this. Why would a man that has always been into making himself rich no matter what suddenly become a "Public Servant " for far less annual salary?
Successful local (and national) newspapers in Britain have always been pro-active. Editors who listen to their readers' problems do not merely report them; they do their best to help. And that has always been the case.
Journalists need to learn how to do more than just tell readers about news events -- they need to understand how to listen as well, and how to help their communities take action on the issues that are of importance to them Journalism isn’t just...

Internet Slowdown Day was a huge succcess, to say the least.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Now do it again on Monday! Then let's go after congress members and let them know their jobs and their donors industries will not fair well if they break the internet. WE can choose our officials even with write-in votes if enough people want to do it. We can change who we do business with as well. Even if that means something extreme like millions dropping their phone and internet service on a single day. It can happen...it really could...or we could all decide to stop paying our bills for one full month or 4 months. Extreme but if there is no other option then it could happen...maybe start with a tiny act like do not go on the WEB at all for two days a week. The traffic counters that sell ads would have a hugely sad day. They want the WEB because we are there....that' is the only reason....that means if we in mass remove our self from the WEB enough then these commercial interest are spending time and money for nothing.

How refreshing is this woman! This was a person Lawrence Lessig sent e-mail notices to support if possible. She was not funded by MAYDAYUSA.COM this time but she seems to support getting into public service to serve the interest of the people and also fight corruption. She has at least thought enough about it to write a book on the topic.
