Should the deal pass regulatory scrutiny, the combined giant would be a player in 19 of the top 20 U.S. media markets."

      The FCC is using hidden back doors in slashcode to control the posting rate to favour their agenda!

      Moderation is a lie!

      Wake up, sheeple!

    There's a nice article on Arstechnica [arstechnica.com] about the ISPs fighting to prevent municipalities from being able to do their own broadband. This looks like one more step toward the total monopoly the cable companies would like.

    I like to think I'm a hard core capitalist but I'm hoping the SEC or somebody will stop this.

    ...I'm expecting this to be just as bad but in exciting new ways.

    Especially when it comes to trying to bork my TiVos.
