Dear Mr. Kraft:
Thank you for contacting me regarding media
diversity. I appreciate the opportunity to
review your comments.
I share your concerns regarding the
upcoming release of revised media ownership
rules. What is so troubling is that the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) is releasing
these changes without giving Congress --or
anyone-- the opportunity to review them. These
changes could shift the structure of our media
marketplace and severely limit the diversity of
You will be pleased to know that I have,
along with several of my colleagues, written to
Chairman Powell of the FCC expressing our
concerns surrounding this process. As a
representative of so many California constituents
and companies that could be affected by these
changes, I feel it is imperative that we be given
time to review and discuss any proposed changes.
Thank you again for contacting me. I look
forward to hearing from you in the future.
