Hello citizens near and wide,

Please join me and support and share this important effort that should have been made long ago. News media, and it’s partners, should NOT be charging U.S. citizens to get live up to the minute news in the country that they live. It can have dire consequences and lead to a complete disconnect. Social media is not reliable on its own. Although, we can receive a great deal of information, it is very unsettling to be kept from having real time updates. 

Many young American households have switched to internet streaming forced by extraordinary high prices for cable and satellite television prices. These are price gouges due to a complete monopoly in television provider service. News apps, such as CNN, CBS, NBC and more are made available on streaming devices providing a sense of false advertising. Much of their live news programming can NOT be accessed without an astronomical television subscription in addition to your expensive internet, and streaming packages. This is a big American RIP OFF!! We already pay a hefty price for internet. Streaming news should ALWAYS be included. This is a fundamental need, a human right to information! In addition, publications such as Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times and more should also be offering free news, especially in a time of a global and national emergency. Apple needs to work with these companies to not charge a subscription fee for vital news publications we rely on for health, safety, well-being, and so that we can comply with government rules & regulations. 

Currently we are amidst one of the largest global crises we have ever bore witness to. All Americans should NOT have to struggle to get live up to the date information. We watch all their commercials and advertising. We close thousands of pop up windows of ads. Our phones are being listened to, tapped, for marketing but internet companies and news companies want to charge us more money? Enough is enough! All news companies should provide internet customers free live up to the minute news at NO EXTRA CHARGE! Help us #MAKENEWSFREE by signing this petition today. Stay well. Stay informed. Thank you for your support. 

*In addition to signing this petition, please contact your own local internet service provider as well as your local congressperson.
