How does one create diversity when you let big fish eat more little fish? I just don't understand the last few things about of the Bush administration.
Tax cuts creates jobs? Loosening restrictions on media ownership creates diversity?
I think the FCC needs an overhaul. Although, this decision follows with their last brilliant idea of letting phone companies close off their lines to 3rd parties. That is supposed to increase competition?
I would have have cable and phone lines open to 3rd parties. That would create competition. As it stands now there will be 2 gated communities for broadband, DLS and cable modems, and you will get about 90% of the media content from 3-5 megacorps.
Oh, wait the internet is supposed to the check to the media concentration. But what about companies like AOL-TimeWarner that own media and cable?
The consumer is well represented in our government.
