24. I agree that relaxation of rules did damage by empowering a conglomerated media.
It was a trade-off with a Republican controlled Congress for expanding the Internet in to schools and rural areas around the nation.

I believe our and the rest of the world's greatest mid-long term hope for increased democracy and empowerment of the people relies on the First Amendment magnifying mass two way communication of the Internet, I believe the Clinton-Gore Administration felt the same way.

One way, top down communication whether print or television is becoming a thing of the past, but like any wounded animal, that's when it can become most dangerous.
