02/05/2003 Entry: "More from Molly Ivins on media concentration (I wish she was in charge)"

"The Federal Communications Commission, led by Michael "My Religion is the Market" Powell, is fixing to remove the last remaining barriers against concentration of media. This means that one company can own all the radio stations, television stations, newspapers and cable systems in any given area. Presently, 10 companies own more than 90 percent of the media outlets."
What this idea of the market is selling us, Molly Ivins, Feb 2, 2003

And like those 10 companies need to control 100% of what we see and hear in the media. And, in the interests of paranoia, how long before they find a way to control web content? Well, someone aside from Corante and Chilling Effects has to think theses things.

And here's where the whole mess started, the unspeakable Telcom Dereg Act of 1996, started in the 80s, which are already haunting us to madness. Okay, sorry, will cool the drama... for now.
