FCC testimony on media ownership: John Anthony Yost

Good evening. My name is John Anthony Yost. I write for Your Life in Print. You know that our nation is built on our principles of democracy. We appeal, as a people, and as a nation, that our government keep a fair and open market in our media and also to open to business ideas and good concepts. When there is no free market, there is less service, there is less variety, and there is power concentrated in the hands of a few. I know for a fact that America does not want a corporate media that is run by the state. We want it for all the people and the public wants a fair and balanced free-market media. Competition spurs better services and better product. The other information helps us all live better lives. After all, we are all the public. Thank you and good night.
