Copps Joins Common Cause


Former Democratic Federal Communications Commission commissioner Michael Copps has joined the national governing board of Common Cause. Copps exited the FCC last December, but vowed to continue to speak out against consolidation and for more local news and information and divsersity in the media.
"Michael Copps is a distinguished public servant whose tireless support for media laws and regulations that serve the public interest and an internet that is open and accessible to all meshes perfectly with Common Cause's reform agenda," said Bob Edgar, president and CEO of Common Cause in a statement. "We're fortunate that he's chosen to continue his service beyond his retirement by joining our board."
