This is something we've talked about on ATS Live! before, but bears some close scrutiny.
Take a look at this wonderful graphic...
he Illusion of Choice
If asked, I wonder if the average person would be aware that most things they see on TV are provided by only 6 companies?
Or that Newscorp holds the reigns as far as the press goes in having the top selling newspapers on 3 continents?
Almost everything you see, hear and read in the media is monopolised.
It does make you wonder - who's news are we reading/watching/hearing about, exactly?
And...given the above, and the power of the lobbyist in US politics - is it any wonder people want to regulate the internet?
