FCC & what part of free speech don't you understand?
FCC Commissioner Jonathan S. Adelstein  addressed The Media Institute on May 20.
"Ben Bagdikian, former dean of the School of Journalism at UC Berkeley, spoke before a packed audience at San Francisco’s City Hall. In 1983, when the first edition of his book The Media Monopoly was released, he wrote that, “50 corporations dominated most of every mass medium.” The number then dropped with each new edition – to 29 firms in 1987, 23 in 1990, 14 in 1992 down to 10 in 1997. The 2000 edition found that just six conglomerates were supplying most of America’s media. "
David Rovics - Who Will Tell the People Living in These Times -
"free speach is a ruse, corporations run the country, and then they make the news.
Is it media or mind control?"

Ron Olesko's 3 hour audio documentary on Stan Rogers
This three hour documentary took many long nights of editing
over the past month and a half.  I found it very rewarding.
WFDU-FM's TRADITIONS from June 1, 2003 HOST: Ron Olesko
Stan Rogers - Northwest Passage with intro from Paul Mills
Ron said "We broadcast it on the eve of the 20th
anniversary of his tragic death.  We also heard from Stan himself, from a two part interview" that he did at WFDU-FM's Teaneck studios in 1982 with former
WFDU program host Shirley Keller.
