STATEMENT BY FCC COMMISSIONER MICHAEL J. COPPS

ON THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT

JOSH SILVER WILL LEAVE FREE PRESS

"Josh Silver is one of the founding fathers of Free Press and a formative force in its
growth over recent years. Many of the causes it champions are causes for which I also have
fought. Due in no small part to the efforts of Josh and the dedicated staff at Free Press, the
voices of millions of Americans that would otherwise have gone unheard have been heard here at
the FCC and in the halls of Congress. Whether fighting to preserve the continued openness of
the Internet or the vibrancy of American media, Josh has made an invaluable contribution to our
democratic dialogue by elevating issues needing national attention to the national stage. I know
Josh will bring the same public interest commitment, energy and organizational genius to his
new challenge, and I join his many friends and admirers in wishing him well in that good cause."
