Media Diversity at Risk
http://www.corpwatch.org/issues/PID.jsp?articleid=6850

On June 2, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote on changes to government rules on media ownership. FCC chairman, Michael Powell, and the two other Republican commissioners on the five-member Commission, will vote in favor of loosening government rules which limit
the size and reach of the nation’s largest broadcasting, newspaper and cable companies. The rule changes to be considered would decrease media diversity and allow large media corporations to merge and create monopolies. The corporations who seek to gain from the deregulation are the
well known big five: Viacom, News Corporation, AOL Timer Warner, General Electric, and Walt Disney.
