Stop Rupert Murdoch from buying the L.A. Times

Murdoch already owns two television stations in the L.A. market, so federal law prohibits him from purchasing the Times. If a waiver is issued, his policy and politics would have an unfair voice in the area.

To:
FCC
Stop Rupert Murdoch from buying the L.A. Times. Mr. Murdoch has proven that he will use his media outlets to change debates and sway public opinion to better policy which concerns him, and this is a danger to our democratic system. Stop those with an already loud voice from becoming even louder.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
