Stop the FCC from Defunding PEG Channels

Messages Sent So Far
The FCC is proposing to redefine what a franchise fee is - and it will radically reduce the level of monetary support available to run PEG access channels across the United States. PEG access channels provide government coverage that allows transparency so citizens can monitor local government actions - something vital to the health of local democracy. PEG access channels provide local content in communities that are not served by the broadcast industry and are increasingly under-served by newspapers. They help prevent "media deserts" in towns and cities across the US and ensure diversity of opinion at the local level. Congress should stop the FCC from trying to re-write the 1984 Cable Act to financially starve local communities and our PEG channels in its rule-making (Docket NR 05-311).

Public access provides information vital for an informed citizenry. It also creates community. Too often local events are not covered by any other media outlet. As our population ages it is even more important to provide access to local events, meetings so all can stay involved in their communities.

Our PEG channels serve the public. So few things do. We need these resources in all communities.

As a Verizon customer, I do not agree with the actions of Verizon attempting to altering the Cable Act, which violates the Constitutional rights of all American citizens who enjoy PEG channels, which provide programs that are valued to their communities. These are self governing communities, that are protected from corporate or special interest impediment of the Citizens' Constitutional rights to utilize communications, and share access to the air waves.
