  •  Obama had a chance to allow the FCC (2+ / 0-)

    to protect us from the consolidation of the media into a few multinational corporations with the MEGAPHONE but didn't do it.

    Michael Kopps (or is it "Copps") of the FCC has gone around the country on his own dime trying to get the administration to listen to what is going on--but it has fallen on deaf ears.

    Btw Obama has also been lame on the net neutrality.

    To make things worse, he seems to dislike the lefty blogosphere.  

    The access to divergent news sources to get information to the electorate is essential for a functioning democracy.

    But for a plutocracy--complete control of the vote tallies, the networks, the internet is essential.

    •  Reagan started to consolidation of media (1+ / 0-)

      It has been a done deal since before Obama was even in the Senate.  He'll need a second term to even have any hope of cleaning up the FCC.  It will also take a progressive Congress to put some common sense back into the law.

      Copps is a good guy but just like Obama, they can't do it alone.

      Time to go work to make sure you've got good Congressional candidates running if you want Change.

      •  Yes, true, it started long ago (0+ / 0-)

        BUT Bush's Michael Powell (head of the FCC under his administration and son of Colin) too it MUCH further.

        Recently there was the ability for the FCC to assert ownership of OUR public airwaves, as well as to assert some fairness over the corporate controlled internet, but despite campaign promises, he lamely gave complete control back to the megacorporations.
