Thom, I have had the pleasure and the good fortune to speak to you live on your 3 to 5 program twice. I am following up on what I think is essential to get our message of change information to a larger audience. I suggest you do a program on the First Amendment right to a “free press”. I have been researching this subject and have contacted the FCC and posted a section of their rules on Facebook, that I believe demonstrates they are not following their own rules on licensing of news programs.

I thought there might have been suits or other court cases challenging the FCC and Congress for violation of the Constitution, but I could not find one case. I then went to ACLU to see if they were involved in any cases and they are not. Corporations that own 90% of all Medias, and the FCC could be sued for failing to protect our airwaves and under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. ATT was broken up because of their monopoly, why not do the same to those who monopolize our Medias.

I have been researching this subject and have filed a complaint with the FCC concerning the control of the TV news media through not reporting and falsely reporting news. I know you have access to more informed people than I to explain how we got to where we are with all media and solutions to the problem.

I will gladly share what I find.

Keep up the good work!!

PS: Your book “Crash of 2016” is a must read for those who know nothing of the history of capital and labor in US History.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
