Minority Media Group Takes on Obama over Comcast-NBC Universal Merger
(The Hill) — A minority media group is taking its opposition to the Comcast-NBC Universal merger directly to President Obama, citing his promises to foster diversity and fight corruption. The National Coalition of African American Owned Media (NCAAOM) bought a full-page ad in the Washington Post on Monday panning the Comcast-NBC Universal deal, which is under review in the Justice Department and at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The ad is written specifically for Obama. It includes an excerpt of a letter he sent to the FCC while he was a senator that advocated for greater diversity in media ownership.
