Wired looks at new FCC proposal for ownership

A reasonably fair article in Wired looks at the upcoming FCC rule changes that have been proposed and will be under consideration at the meeting of the Commission on June 2.

They do a reasonable job of laying out what is at stake and bringing in some lessons from the radio industry (which deregulated in 1996 and has seen a rash of mergers and the increased influence of national organizations and news over local programming).

In the politics make strange bedfellows department, the NRA and the majority of democrats all feel that the rules should remain unchanged.
