In various media-activist campaigns, you'll see various spinoff websites created by already-established groups. For example, the national media activist group Free Press (which is convening the National Conference for Media Reform this weekend) will launch coalition efforts around media ownership or network neutrality, and launch brand-new (but affiliated) websites (e.g., savetheinternet.com or www.stopbigmedia.com) for each of those campaigns or initiatives.
CMA now takes a page from that playbook. We've created a spinoff website dedicated to the forthcoming DTV (digital television) conversion in the United States -- DTVRedAlert.org. We plan to make the website a hub of information around the transition and its aftermath; we encourage you to visit it regularly.
The press release announcing the website's launch is available here.
