Big ol' thread right here but worth reading. Comes on the heels of the FCC voting to allow ownership groups to own multiple TV stations or TV & newspaper in same market.

I think almost no one realizes how big this is. I mean it's over. Once they control all of the info that's it and now they can.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai announced Monday he has "serious concerns" about Sinclair Broadcast Group's acquisition of Tribune Media, saying he would send the transaction through a lengthy administrative process often viewed as a deal-killer.

Christopher Ruddy, who is a close friend of Trump, runs a rival news service called Newsmax and he is against the merger. Maybe Trump has been listening to Ruddy.
