9. This article is so on target

It is impossible to have a decent democracy when a media monopoly obscures things of major importance to our country and the world, in the interest of maintaining the status quo -- i.e. keeping the powerful in power and maintaining the powerlesness of those without the massive amounts of money in the hands of the powerful.

It should be noted that Bill Clinton set the stage for this when he signed the Telecommunications Act of 1996.
