BPR Quote of the Day
“Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”
This enlightened Founding Father understood that without an informed citizenry a democratic government would not function in the best interests of the people. Here is everything you wanted to know about Media Consolidation and wish weren’t so:
Arlen Grossman, those on the Left do not want a well informed citizenry. Those on the Left want to turn us into mindless zombies.
Nonsense, Jeffrey. Are followers of Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, etc your definition of well-informed citizenry?
Arlen Grossman, yes.
Arlen Grossman, I like Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage.
All of them are pretty much alike as it is. I don’t know that if they merged into one it would make a whole lot of difference. 😦
I wonder if Jefferson would rethink his position if he were alive. With 6 media companies controlling 90% of all media, we are only 5 mergers away from having a Soviet-style media monopoly.
