Media Consolidation Sucks

Kinda tired of this topic, but it's probably useful to occassionally point out exactly why media consolidation is so bad for the non-elite citizens of America.

If the ownership of the major media outlets is concentrated in a very few hands, then those very few hands can decide to effectively bury a story forever - even if it's a story about innocent people getting killed by very big, powerful, monied businesses.

On a side note, media consolidation is the type of thing that happens when libertarian philosophy is employed by the U.S. government. Media consolidation during the Bush presidency has been a boon to U.S. elites and a disaster for ordinary Americans. If only those moronic Rethugs who are not members of 'the elites' could see that.
