This has nothing to do with the ideological positions of entities like Fox News or the Wall Street Journal. Just check out what Murdoch’s lobbying has allowed him to do:
“But Murdoch kept at the latter fight, continuing to push for the FCC to rewrite media ownership rules so that one corporation can own the daily newspapers, the weekly “alternative” newspaper, the city magazine, suburban publications, the eight largest radio stations, the dominant broadcast and cable television stations, popular Internet news and calendar sites, billboards and concert halls in even the largest American city.”
The man can essentially run the propaganda of an entire city. Whatever happened to the concept of diversifying media?
