darkriver BS: PBS under attack (28) RE: BS: PBS under attack 04 May 05

You remember that old saw? --"Freedom of the press is guaranteed to him who has one."

So free speech is still there. Only problem is, outside of PBS, all the media owners are right-wingers, and they are busy OWNING all the supposedly public airwaves, and consolidating their power (cf ClearChannel in the US).

So broadcasting free speech is coming to an end. DougR, garg, others--relax, it's in the bag, "fair and balanced" TV and radio will soon be: Nothing but the Republican Party line all the way. Nothing to disturb your wa.

Thank god there's still the Internet. And technically, they won't be able to hijack that.
