Take Back Your Local TV!

Common Cause
August 25th, 2004

Television stations will make more than $1.5 billion this year from political ads, but most are refusing to give viewers more time to hear candidates discuss the issues. Tell your local stations: Money shouldn't be all that talks in campaign 2004!

The majority of local newscasts that aired in September and October of 2002 contained no information about the upcoming mid-term elections. With so much at stake in 2004, we can't afford a local media that pass on their obligation to inform citizens about our democracy.
