Subject: Don't Miss L.A. Hearing on Media Ownership

Dear Tanya,

Do you want the media to do a better job covering issues you care about? Do 
you want more quality journalism? Are you wondering whether a few giant 
media conglomerates will provide the diverse and independent viewpoints you 

Now is your chance to tell Washington policymakers how well the media are 
serving your community.

Please join the National Latino Media Council, Media Alliance and Free 
Press at a "Public Hearing on Media Ownership" in Los Angeles on Thursday 
with FCC Commissioners Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein and Rep. Hilda 

Here are the details:

Public Hearing on Media Ownership
Thursday, Aug. 31, 2006
6:30 p.m.
Davidson Conference Center
University of Southern California
Los Angeles

The Public Hearing on Media Ownership is happening at a critical juncture. 
The Federal Communications Commission is considering new rules that could 
change the number of newspapers, radio stations and TV stations that one 
company is allowed to own in one area. The Los Angeles event will focus on 
the ways that these proposed rule changes would impact communities of color.

The forum, which is free and open to the public, will include an open 
microphone session for the public to offer testimony on media issues 
directly to Commissioners Copps and Adelstein. All testimony will be 
recorded and submitted to the FCC and California's congressional delegation.
