    NBC, ABC, Fox, CBS, etc... all have stations owned by companies that don't exactly remain neutral, but you let a conservative run company buy up some stations and suddenly the sky is falling, conservatives are taking over the airwaves.

      You’re right, of course. Consolidated, corporate, cartel-level control of mass media and the internet didn’t suddenly become a problem.

      Just like it doesn’t stop being a problem when you think somehow it means your side is ‘winning.’

      When FDR was president, the public airwaves were just that. By Bush the Elder’s time, fifty companies controlled nine tenths of American broadcast media. As of last year, it was down to five companies controlling 90% of broadcast media. Trump’s kleptocracy’s given up any pretense of protecting the public interest. You may think that’s all well and good. It ain’t sudden but there are large chunks of sky laying all over the ground making a Hell of a mess.

      Edit: ‘But’ not ‘and.’
