and more bad news: the FCC voted to repeal several media outlet ownership restrictions. This lifts the ban on a newspaper owning a broadcast station in teh same city and allows networks to purchase even more stations then they could before. The upshot of the 3-2 vote was a surprisingly tighter restriction on consolidation of radio stations. Hopefully, this will temporarily slow down Clear Channel's voracious appetite for formerly good, independent radio stations. And the no-brainer of the day award goes to their decision to dissalow one of the major networks (ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS) from buying out another major network. So, yes, there's a little good news. But unfortunately, TV and your newspaper are about to get more streamlined and homogenized. Thanks FCC. You suck.
