the point: this merger is a bad idea not because of the direct consequences it will have (although they will be extremely less than ideal) but because of the precident it sets for how large and powerful a company we are willing to let exist. as companies like this get bigger and bigger, it won't be long until the three or four media conglomerates left decide that it's in thier best interest (read: that it will make them more money, not that it will allow them to do what they do better) to join forces, even informally. . . .bad news. some of the earlier posts have covered the impact of conglomerated media pretty well, so you get the picture. . .
