Supporting Satellite Radio

I usually don't post about politics, but tonight I got a disturbing email tonight from XM Radio.

"The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), the organization that represents the large radio and television owners, is using its lobbyists, campaign contributions and political influence to have Congress and the Federal Communications Commission limit XM's ability to provide you with "locally oriented" content, including the new XM Instant Traffic & Weather channels."

As an XM listener, I can say that their new Traffic & Weather channels are awesome. Much better than waiting for the AM radio reports every 10-15 minutes, and pretty detailed & accurate. If you are a satellite radio listener, or even just considering it, visit the XM Radio Grassroots site for more information and to send a message to the FCC and Congress to ask them to not limit XM's ability to offer local content.
