Wow, looks like the FCC commissioned and shredded a second report about media mergers being bad for the consumer. Full report here. It essentially says that although the number of commericial radio stations has increased since the 1996 Telecommunications Act (up 5.9%), there are fewer owners of those radio stations (down 35%). This outcome would have been obvious to anybody who gave it a little thought.

The proposed townhall meeting that the FCC is holding in L.A. on October 3 should be fun (no time or location announced yet). They got some splaining to do.
