From Janine Nichols:
Few understand the threat presented by NBC’s proposed merger with Comcast better than Al Franken, believe me. Please stand with him, with us, to generate a HUGE rallying cry for freedom of information directed at the FCC and DOJ TODAY.
Please join me, and please ask your friends to join you. This is no small matter. This is total corporate control of the media we’re fighting. Consider the damage FOX Noise has done and is doing already Want to know why the evil Berlusconi is never voted out of office? It’s because there are 6 broadcast channels in Italy. He OWNS three of them and the other three are government controlled. This is where we are headed if we don’t make a stand.

Subject: Urgent – please watch this video
To: Janine Nichols
If you’re concerned about corporate control of the media, I need you to take two minutes out of your day to watch something.
As you know, the proposed merger between Comcast and NBC Universal is an important moment in our effort to stop big corporations from controlling our media.
But the FCC and Department of Justice may be about to approve this deal. This would have serious consequences for Minnesotans and consumers across America.
Please click here to watch this important video and get the details.
Once you’ve watched the video, please sign our open letter asking that this merger be stopped. Forward this email to all of your friends–we don’t have much time to act. And stay tuned for more information.
