3. The people are waking up, so more media grab is utterly predictable.

This is important. This is war on us.

7. Guess who appoints the FCC Commisioners?

The President. 3 of 5 of them (including Genachowski) are Democrats.

Can't blame this one on the Rs, I'm afraid.

10. The Chairmanof the FCC is appointed by the President,

and serves at the pleasure of the President.

It IS Chairman Genachowski who is pushing FOR these changes,
and he want them BEFORE Christmas!

"Word is that Murdoch now covets the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune — the bankrupt-but-still-dominant newspapers (and websites) in the second- and third-largest media markets, where Murdoch already owns TV stations.

Under current media ownership limits, he can't buy them. It's illegal ... unless the Federal Communications Commission changes the rules.

But according to numerous reports, that's exactly what FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski plans to do. He's circulating an order at the FCC to lift the longstanding ban on one company owning both daily newspapers and TV stations in any of the 20 largest media markets.

And he wants to wrap up this massive giveaway just in time for the holidays.

President Obama appointed Julius Genachowski Chairman of the FCC in 2009.
It turns out that Julius Genachowski was a top "bundler" for Obama's campaign in 2008, and is a close personal friend.
It is reported that they play basketball together.


President Obama obviously has no idea what his appointee is up to
because during Campaign 2008, Candidate Obama was emphatic about how important a diverse Media was to our democracy.

Maybe if we all write the White House and give the President a "Heads Up", he can intervene on his friend before it is too late!

12. Maybe it's time for Obama to replace him

with a more progressive friendly Chairman, since it's looking like this one been captured by Rupert Murdoch.

15. I wasn't aware there were still restrictions.

 

If there are, they ought to be stricter. No vertical integration. Infrastructure, content, and distribution must be owned separately.
