But this is a general economic trend, not just limited to the media.  Look
at the consolidation in dept. stores (another 5 years K- and Wal Mart are
gonna be it), banks, airlines, beer (Anheuser-Busch accouonts for ~60% of
that market), etc.  Not a pretty picture, but I fail to see why many seem
to think "our" industry should be immune to this.
