For Politech, please:

Consumers Union has released a new telecommunications and media online
resource: _www.HearUsNow.org_ <>. I hope
that you will take a moment to check it out.

The site offers in-depth reading on over 60 consumer related telecom
issues. Consumer tips on what to do before you buy, understanding your
bills after and making companies listen when you are unhappy (from
phone services to copyright rules on digital content). There are also
7 different ways to make a difference in less then 2 minutes (see "Get
Heard" on the left bar and click the red link). gives
consumers the ability to work for change on an individual level and
provides hundreds of resources to join efforts already going on across
the country.

And there is a fun movie to watch, a spoof on a current TV show, but
more importantly puts media consolidation (a somewhat dry topic) in to
a nice, easily digestible, package.

Please help spread the word and tell people to go to _www.HearUsNow.org_

All the best,

Kenneth DeGraff
