i'm reading all this commotion going on in LA about the FCC impending vote on media ownership restirctions and i am very much opposed to media ownership concentration. i don't think these huge companies should be able to own newspapers and TV stations in the same market. also the percentage of viewres that a single tv station can reach is an issue. what really concens me, however, is who the hell cares who owns what and where it reaches if it's all more or less the same crap. in other words i'm not conviced that more "independent" distribution of mainstream media will lessen the mass indoctrination of the public. the mainstream is still the most widely used source of media and it requires radical change not liberal/conservative elitist tit for tat!!!
