FCC Close To Deregulating Media Ownership

It’s looking more and more like the Federal Communications Commission is going to further ease restrictions on media ownership, allowing companies to own TV, radio and newspapers in the same market.

We’ll be cutting off minority opinions and dissent, and it’s not our founding fathers intended.”
