This could not have happened if the cross ownership and ownership separation 
rules were still in place. Anybody that thinks their removal helped in the 
expansion of the availability of alternative media sources just doesn't get 
it. The FCC for a long time has not operated in the public interest rather 
it operates in the bucklic interest. Tell me we are better off with media 
monopolies and I'll show you country where the speech is controlled.
