IPY, you seem to believe that 'local media outlet' equals 'independent local media outlet'. Nothing could be further from the truth. What we see and hear on our local channels is determined by corporate thugs in far away places based solely on how much profit they can generate. Mat's piece is about their success in squashing any attempt to determine how 'local media outlets' determine which stories to cover. It did not mention 'monitoring'. If they wanted to monitor a news channel, all they need to do is watch it. Your anti-government rhetoric would have us all living in a Lord of the Flies society, and we all know what happened to poor Piggy. History is rife with examples of the disastrous consequences that are the result of the concentration of power. The media industry has long been on that path, and it is absolutely appropriate for the government to examine the effects.
haha... troll much?
Physical location, not state incorporated in. Amazon is one of those companies incorporated in Delaware, but located in Seattle WA.
Well, I'm not saying that the Gov is an ideal organization (local, state, or fed). I'm just saying that regulation is a necessary evil. And yeah, sometimes I think OSHA is just a big Federal Anti-Darwin program, but seriously, should someone have to risk their life to earn a paycheck stitching garments together?
"Spending more money on the dead is less for the living."
Huh?? The structure is being preserved for the living. It's called the "Preservation Society", that's what they usually spend their money on. I'm sorry, but I still don't understand your comment.
