WGAE Meets with FCC Commissioner Copps

On Friday, December 3, a WGAE contingent met with Michael Copps, one of the five members of the Federal Communications Commission.  We discussed the consolidation of ownership of media companies, the downward financial pressures on broadcast news, and Net Neutrality.

Commissioner Copps has been a stalwart and articulate supporter of the rights of communities and creators in an environment dominated by powerful communications companies.  Read his most recent remarks here [PDF].

Representing the WGAE were President Michael Winship, Executive Director Lowell Peterson, Director of Communications Elana Levin, Director of Organizing Justin Molito, and Business Agent Geoff Betts.
