Common Cause New York Testimony Regarding the Cable Franchise Agreement by and Between The City of New York and Verizon New York Inc.

May 20, 2008

This Common Cause New York testimony reads, in part, 'This franchise agreement is a valuable opportunity for New Yorkers to gain improved services and greatly expanded access to government information. Common Cause/New York strongly supports the idea of this contract, but, as with any negotiated contract, the devil is in the details. Instead, Common Cause/New York is concerned that it seems to be a $70 billion sweetheart deal, drawn up behind closed doors, that does not adequately protect ordinary New Yorkers.'

FCC Chairman Pai Abandoning Diversity Advisory Committee

April 24, 2017

It is unnecessary and harmful for Chairman Pai to replace the FCC's Diversity Advisory Committee, which for years drew on the expertise of diversity experts to generate valuable and vetted proposals to advance important diversity initiatives. Commission leadership from both parties too-often ignored that committee's proposals. But instead of reconstituting that committee and finally acting on its many extant recommendations, Chairman Pai has chosen to ignore it and create a new committee which will take months or longer to organize, meet, and come up with proposals. Given the Trump Administration’s track record of business friendly appointments, Pai is likely to select committee members who put corporate interests ahead of diversity. Shameful. It is decades beyond time for serious action to help minorities and women in media ownership. Pai's announcement is a serious step backwards.
