Mr. President: Media Diversity and Open Internet should be Priorities for next FCC Chair

Spurred by the recent announcement that current Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission will soon be stepping down, the United Church of Christ, OC Inc. joined a letter  with Common Cause and 46 other civil rights and public interest advocacy organizations last week, setting out for President Obama criteria for the next chair.   While recognizing the important achievements of Obama's last term, it concluded that the FCC still has, "much to do."   Highlighting the importance of media diversity and an open Internet, the letter outlined a number of media justice and communications rights issues President Obama endorsed as a Senator and presidential candidate and urged him to pursue those goals.
