Media and Democracy

Democracy can't survive without a well-informed citizenry that can communicate freely about the issues of the day.

New York is a world media capitol for all forms of communication -- not only print and broadcast, but entertainment and telecommunications as well.

As the media industry consolidates into a few major conglomerates, Common Cause New York is advocating for independent media voices and strong consumer protections in telecommunications to ensure quality, affordable service.

Learn more about our work to help foster independent media voices and protect land lines and other telecom services.
