"free" press

I am working on a paper and am stressing out as the deadline gets closer. I took a break and read this article in Le Monde diplomatique about deregulating media ownership. Interesting...

This month the Federal Communications Commission, despite sharp party-affiliated divisions, voted to relax key media ownership restrictions in the United States, permitting greater concentration of companies. The once admired standards of American journalism have been shamed by scandals at the New York Times and by over-close, compliant relationships with political power before, during and after the war in Iraq.

back to my paper :-/
