Mel Hopkins Posted February 7, 2017 Report Share Posted February 7, 2017 In a letter sent, November 3, 2016, to the Government Accountability Office by the 5 U.S. Senators request- "As one of the largest advertisers in the United States, the federal government should play an active role in ensuring that minority-owned media outlets have fair opportunities to compete for and be awarded federal advertising contracts." A 2007 report revealed the federal government agencies spent more than $4 billion in advertising but " a pittance of that amount (5% from 5 agencies) was spent with minority media publications." Maybe some of those advertising dollars might find its way to websites with large audiences too. Follow or contact these five senators .S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) was joined by fellow Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) for updates on how to bid for these advertising contracts. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
