The vast majority of news media is in the hands of just a few corporations. Fake news is rampant. We did not have this problem prior to the change in ownership laws in the Telecommunications Act of 1996 that allowed mega corporations to own 500 stations or more. In order to stop fake news and allow a diversity of opinions and positions to be presented in the news media, we need to restore the ownership laws that were in place for broadcast prior to 1996 by revoking the ownership rule relaxations in the 1996 Telecommunications Act.
