Submission + - Comcast-NBC merger approved by FCC 1

AndyAndyAndyAndy writes: "It seems that the FCC has approved the proposed merger between Comcast and NBC, effectively kicking apart hopes for protection against "pipes and their water" frameworks. Pres. Obama's 2008 goal also goes ignored: "I strongly favor diversity of ownership of outlets and protection against the excessive concentration of power in the hands of any one corporation, interest or small group." The Dept. of Justice is also onboard, leaving little hope that this will be stopped."

  • Yet another virtual Nation State -- the FCC is only part of the necessary approval process.

    We need a global organization like the United Nations to get involved.

    Nation states like the resulting Comcast+NBC have a lot to do with the education and health of millions.

    The nation state responsibilities include topics like immunization, obesity, health, civility and morality.
