    Thank goodness for competitition regulators in Canada who actually take their job seriously. The media is awful in the US. The companies who say that they’ll bring more ‘diversity’ in terms of output (albeit w/ less DIVERSITY of views against the mega-company line) by buying everyone up are just lying, as we saw after the US Telecommunications Act of 1996. Democracy loses without a strong, independant media.
