The Chief of the FCC's Political Bureau, Mark Berlin, has been writing MAC supporters of our May 24th Formal Complaint regarding WISN and WTMJ's violations of the Zapple Doctrine, falsely telling them that no such complaint has been filed.
Luckily, I have all the emails to not only prove it was filed at the FCC, but was sent to him - personally (as well as six others at the agency.)
Please educate yourselves by reading my somewhat scathing response to Mark Berlin. Then see a story about this topic at the Voices Newspaper Blog.
Next, write to Mark Berlin at CampaignLaw@FCC.gov , and copy all the FCC Commissioners: Julius.Genachowski@fcc.gov ; Robert.McDowell@fcc.gov ; Mignon.Clyburn@fcc.gov ; Jessica.Rosenworcel@fcc.gov ; Ajit.Pai@fcc.gov
ALSO - blind copy it or forward it to me at Complain@TellFCC.com so I can keep track of your complaints - and their responses.
It's time to remind the Political Division of the FCC who they really work for!

Biased or distorted news stories
