Tell Congress that you Support the Television Consumer Freedom Act!

.

http://www.publicknowledge.org/tell-congress-you-support-tv-freedom

.

The Television Consumer Freedom Act is a good first step towards giving consumers more choice, and one that does not mandate any particular business model. It would mean that people's bills could go down, as they would no longer have to pay for programming they don't watch.

Thanks for telling Congress to take action below!

.

To make even more of an impact, call your Senators directly and tell them to support the bill! Call the Senate switchboard and ask for your state's representatives: (202) 224-3121.

Tell Congress that you Support S. 912

Official Title: S. 912: Television Consumer Freedom Act of 2013

.

Your letter will be sent to your representative and/or senators in Congress and posted anonymously on POPVOX.com.

Your comment and information (except your phone number) will also be shared with Public Knowledge.

Should Facebook, Yahoo and Twitter really judge what's news?

Twitter wants more of that kind of user engagement. It recently rolled out a targeted notifications feature for emergency alerts and crises, and it now hosts an experiment account called "Event Parrot" for delivering breaking news via direct message.

A recent Pew survey indicated that about half of both Facebook and Twitter users in the U.S. get some of their news on those sites.

The latest moves reveal a new level of ambition to deliver the news, and if they provide the right mix of content, the sites eventually could succeed in becoming places where people get most of their news.

"If Facebook can surface enough content, with enough variety, they might convince me I can get everything from them," said Gilbert of the Medill School of Journalism.
