Fuck It! We're Going Live:

So you think the digital television transition is simply about better quality broadcasts and ensuring you get your "Ugly Betty" fix?

Think again.

It's about access to information and a fight for public space. Upwards of 80% of the American people say local TV news is their prime source of information to make decisions about their lives. And, at least in theory, the airwaves belong to the people.

With up to 20 million people, including seniors, low mobility, low income, people of color and rural communities unready for the transition, we must ensure a no cost digital transition in the interest of democracy and the common good, not corporate profits. is a media relations blog advocating for a just and socially responsible transition, brought to you by Media Action Grassroots Network.
