As Americans, we believe in freedom of speech – that no one should control what people hear, say, or see. We know that technology makes it possible for even the smallest voice to be heard, and that is a miracle of freedom. Those are our values.
In February, Comcast announced it was going to buy Time Warner Cable. Think about that for a minute: Two of the biggest cable monopolies – with the worst customer service records – will merge and dictate what 30% of America can see on cable TV. This means less consumer choice, less competition, and higher cable bills.
This merger can only be approved if the FCC determines it is in the public interest – your interest. The merger of these two cable giants will serve Comcast’s business interests. Our values require us to take action to preserve choice and competition.
I believe that businesses should operate free of government intervention, but these companies are government sanctioned monopolies that have the power to silence independent, competitive voices like TheBlaze, if it furthers their business interests.
So what can you do?
I ask you to make a difference and let the FCC know that serving the public interest means more choice, more competition, and lower cable bills.
Let’s stand together and preserve our principles. Let your voice be heard.
TAKE ACTION! Visit GetTheBlaze.com and fill out our FCC form. We’ll submit it for you, along with the thousands of others we collect. Please encourage your friends and family to fill out the form too. Your comments are vital as they will become part of the official government record and allow those fighting with us to point to what the public deems is in its interest. 10,000 comments would make a huge difference, but it all starts with one. Yours.
Thank you for your support! Together we are making a difference!
