Sorry about that. Our ISP had some difficulties with the webserver, but that appears to be fixed. Apologies to everyone who tried to access the CMA website earlier in the day.

And speaking of which, today marks the one year anniversary of what FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein referred to (quoting Winston Churchill) as the end of the beginning -- referring to the infamous FCC vote of June 2, 2003 to remove a number of key media ownership rules.

Danny Schechter wrote an assessment of the situation, one year hence. By a happy coincidence(?), today's email bag also brings us the resurgence of the Media Carta campaign.

Plus, the June 2004 CMA newsletter got sent yesterday. Be sure to sign up if you haven't already done so.
