More than likely this was over Comcast taking over, if our major media continues to get narrowed down to just a few big operations, like Christian says the dumbed down American people will be getting an ever increasing amount of dissinformation, propaganda and anything but the truth.
Its bad enough now !!!! Look at all the examples of dissinformation that the major media's sold the public over the last two elections, Fema camps from Bachman, Death panels from Palin, continually telling the lie about weapons of mass distruction for Lieberman, Obama's not an American, given credence by republican congressional silence, Obama is a racist by Beck, Limpballs has been in on too many to mention, its almost endless.
This has been happening for several decades slow but sure, anyone that thinks these big corporations having such control over information is a good thing, isn't thinking of his own self interests. Where was this administration when this was under consideration ?
