FCC To Allow MORE Media Concentration

-- by Dave Johnson

Not content with the current rapid pace at which corporatism is overtaking democracy, FCC to review media ownership rules,

The Federal Communications Commission voted yesterday to review its media ownership rules, though the panel's two Democrats objected that the process won't ensure enough public comment on proposals.

With a Republican majority in place after a vacancy had produced months of deadlock, the panel reopened the disputed issue of limits on the number of radio and television stations that one owner can have and the limits on cross-ownership between newspapers and broadcasters. The rules are of great concern to giant media firms in an era of mergers and convergence of print and broadcast media inside companies.

What's the point? Everything ALREADY sounds like Fox News.
