Oh, it's a concern for sure, and like you, I'm not a fan of it. But I think in the end, mass media has to be treated like any other industry. I don't know enough about the anti-trust laws in this area to suggest if they are enough or not.

Also, does anybody else find it surprising that the lamestream media never presented the public any serious investigative reports on the above scandals PRIOR to the last election?
Talk radio, Fox News and a lot of the sites you link to on here dedicated no small amount of their resources to report on the issues you brought up? They count as media also.

The term "lamestream media" is just the feel good dog whistle for those news outlets conservatives have issues with. The counter message is getting out there through plenty of sources.
