27. I'm glad you mentioned the corporate media. I can follow up on that.

As we speak, I have a petition on Sign-On.org that addresses this very issue. My petition is titled: Restore the Airwaves to the Public. I have at last count 86 signers.

Assuming Obama gets back in, we need to address this issue NOW. I just got fed up and pissed off. And this is how I am venting...with a petition to end corporate controlled media. I don't know about you, but I remember the variety on the radio back in the 80's. I worked in the business from 1978 to 2002. There was diversity on the air. Not now. We need to change that.

I addressed my petition to the Prez, and FCC Chairman Genacowski (sp). But getting it in front of Senator Warren ( I know I'm getting anxious), Senator Senator Sanders, and other progressives in the House could give us momentum. But I am trying. This is my first petition--ever. So I'm just sayin we can do this and eliminate the monopoly. I'm asking President Obama to bring back the 12/12/12 rule which states: "One company cannot own no more than 12 radio (AM and FM) stations, and 12 television stations nationally. I don't have a link, but go to Sign-On and see it, sign it, and tell your friends. And if you already signed, bless you. And if you think I'm crazy for doing this, you can tell me so.

NOTE: If you are a former broadcaster like me, I need input on the language. I think I need to tighten it up a bit.
