AndyAndyAndyAndy writes “It seems that the FCC has approved the proposed merger between Comcast and NBC, effectively kicking apart hopes for protection against ‘pipes and their water’ frameworks. Pres. Obama’s 2008 goal also goes ignored: ‘I strongly favor diversity of ownership of outlets and protection against the excessive concentration of power in the hands of any one corporation, interest or small group.’ The Dept. of Justice is also onboard, leaving little hope that this will be stopped.”
