Open Thread - the media monopoly edition

by Mary

Bad ideas never die. Wasn't it only a couple of years ago that the FTC under Michael Powell was forced to stop his bad idea designed to encourage media consolidation where the elephants own even more media than before? But Rupert and the other monopolists have a boatload of cash and so the bad idea of 2004 is back again just like a vampire raising up from its crypt. And because the vampires are crafty creatures, they've learned to force the issue in a short time to keep the public from having sufficient time to understand what's up and to mobilize to stop the media grab of the media monsters. We have at most 5 weeks to make sure Congress is looking out for us and not the media monsters.

Your turn now.
