    Someone passed along this NYTimes article about media corporations mergers that I thought I'd share with folks and see what they thought.

    I think the federal government operates for the benefit of corporations, not people.

    Yeah, but isn't it 6 sisters? I mean the article mentions 6 major media conglomerates but only 5 of them are sisters?

    Anyway, I'll stop being pedantic and say that this this sucks and it shouldn't be allowed to happen. That's part of the problem with capitalism, it's not regulated nearly enough and morals and ethics in the business world are not nearly strong enough.
