United against the FCC

It seems impossible to break the lock. Conservatives insist that liberals have a stranglehold on the media, while liberals insist that it is the other way around. Given this disagreement, how could anyone favor increasing hegemony of ownership in the mass media. Admittedly, this remains an issue that is largely taken up by those leaning left, but as William Safire notes in today’s New York Times there is an unprecedented number of folks who are against the “Powell ruling” and I think this is a reflection of how people feel about the news media in general. The question is whether there is the passion behind these convictions–especially with so many other problems in policy these days–to carry it through to some sort of remedy.
