Update on Media Consolidation Fight
The most recent installment of Bob McChesney's excellent Media Matters radio show (available as in mp3 format here) provides a clear overview of the FCC's plans to overturn the meager media ownership limits that currently exist.
McChesney is a professor at the University of Illinois and a founder of Free Press, the main national media reform group. Free Press's "Stop Big Media" site is excellent, and includes a blog.
The appalling issue of the two suppressed FCC studies is discussed in the broadcast.
