    state-controlled media like we see in more authoritative governments, the system we have in the US, although imperfect, has served us as well as any other institution in this country.

    For better or for worse, mainstream media is how a lot of our populace receive the information that informs their views and decisions. And if we can devise a media system that serves the public interest better than what we have, we should strive for that, as with anything else.
