    Amendment I of the Bill of Rights protects Freedom of Speech and "of the press."

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    ********************

    The League of Women Voters makes a difference in the lives of citizens because of the energy and passion of thousands of members committed to our principles. The organization remains true to its basic purpose: to make democracy work for all citizens.

    Our Mission Statement:

    The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

    The League Of Women Voters administered the Presidential Debates until 1992 when the Commission on Presidential Debates-a Corporate funded and Democrat & Republican managed organization took over and set the bar too high for popular third party Candidates like Ralph Nader in 2000 (Perot's Wealth bought him exposure in the media in 1992.)

    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent United States government agency, directly responsible to Congress. The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934 and is charged with regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. The FCC's jurisdiction covers the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. possessions.

    Unfortunately with Republican Presidential appointments the FCC has evolved into a Pro-Corporate advocacy group pushing for further undemocratic Corporate Media Consolidation.

    FCC

    The Amendment is in particular about the rights of "people." The media are only "people" in a legal sense. Also, a law alone doesn't actively protect ... the FCC is an executive agency for enforcing laws, so I think protecting the rights of media would be in their jurisdiction (although they're usually thought of as restricting the rights of media).

    First Amendment, which is protected by our men and women in uniform. So the next time you see a soldier, sailor, airman or marine, say Thank You..
