I am really, REALLY glad to hear about his partnership in this truly important area of media criticism. I would love to know how to be involved and support the process of public education regarding the current realities of media dynamics. I was involved in the last (first) two Media Matters conferences as a member of Project: Think Different and am glad to see this continued embrace of media literacy on this level...sign me up! And thank you for your great work here!

Comment on Creative Voices Call For Stronger Net Neutrality Rules by HandsOff

We at the Hands Off the Internet coalition believe that the issue of "net neutrality" has no place in the merger of two independent companies and should instead be addressed on an industry-wide level. Please visit us at for more information on our coalition and net neutrality.

Comment on Sign Up to Deliver the Internet Freedom Petition to Senator Kennedy! by HandsOff43

I work for the Hands Off the Internet Coalition. Is the internet really in danger? According to the Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, extensive net neutrality legislation currently pending in the US Senate is unnecessary because there has been no demonstrated harm to consumers, that normal market forces would be likely to prevent any problems, and that new laws would cause more problems than they solve. In addition, The American Consumer Institute's research found that the “push for regulation is being made by the most profitable internet firms (i.e. google, yahoo) and that the consumers best interests are not in line with this regulation.” I urge you to research the facts before signing the petition. Don’t you think this issue should be left to the FTC, FCC and Department of Justice rather than members of Congress who lack the knowledgebase to write this type of legislation? Thank you for your time.

Comment on Can You Hear Us Now, Verizon? by 2hope

I attended the public comment hearing as a representive for the Boston Neighborhood Producer's Group (BNPG) and found the meeting to be very interesting. What became clear to me at this meeting was that Verizon was not really interested in negotiating with ciities and towns in a manner that could be described as genuine. It's kind of obvious why Verizon would want a 90 day period to "negotiate" they would most likely purposely drag out any talks until the clock strikes 12 and then throw up their hands and say, "oh well, we tried, please pass the papers for the national franchise."

Comment on Can You Hear Us Now, Verizon? by Bill Solomon

Beccatabasky What a thoughtful, direct and wonderfully written description and analysis of yesterday's Cable Division/DTE Hearing regarding Verizon's proposed regulatory changes, the response of cities and towns and PEG access organizations, and as importantly the shame of those who supported the proposed changes, not because of their belief in the proposal, but for reasons less than admirable. It is much like yesterday's testimony against the proposed 90-day limitation on franchising, during and after each speaker I would think to myself how thoughtful and articulate they are/were and how I could not imagine how I could be as good or effective as they. But as each individual got up to speak one by one, each had a sincerity, passion, focus and thougtfulness that I have only seen and heard at a handful of public hearings. Your review does them honor, and causes me to feel, long after I should otherwise have felt so, optimism in what John Kennedy called in his 1960 inaguration speech, a new generation of leadership. Becca, stay interested and involved, and continue, "to let the word[s] go forth". May I forward your comments to others who attended the hearing or are otherwise interested? Bill Solomon

Yeah, that's a drag. YouTube doesn't support blogging on WordPress. They said they are working on adding new platforms soon, though.
