Ruminate This has a good rant about the continuing media consolidation in this country, which continues unabated under the watchful eye of SecState's son Michael Powell. The five corporations which currently control almost all of US television, and much of the rest of the media, are General Electric (NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, etc.), Disney (ABC, ESPN, etc.), AOL Time Warner (CNN, Time magazine, etc.), Fox (FoxNews, Fox TV, FoxSportsNet, etc.), and Viacom (CBS and others). These are the companies that have been complicit in helping Bush convince the majority of Americans that Iraq was somehow involved with 9/11, based on zero evidence. They should be broken up into tiny little pieces, returning the air and cable waves to the American public.
