Payola action time

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

The battle to end payola has been heating up lately; New York attorney general Elliot Spitzer has been suing radio stations, members of Congress are pushing for new laws against payola, and the FCC is under fire for not enforcing existing laws.

Free Press, an organization we have always been big fans of, has set things up so you can push Congress, the FCC, and offending radio stations to end payola. It takes 5 minutes.
