I wonder if it isn't time to rescind the Telecom Bill of 1996 and break up
the corporate ownership of radio and TV licenses. 
Unlike newspapers, magazines, and Web sites, you just can't start a radio
and TV station to compete with the ones on the air now.

Where is the FCC at present with regard to its rethinking of the regulations
concerning media cross-ownership?  With major newspapers and broadcasting
stations all struggling financially, it would seem to me that this might be
an apt time to ask whether relaxation of the rules might help the different
media to boost one another up.  -Doug
