re: News Media Workshop – Comment, Project No. P091200 Gentlemen: If your concern is genuinely to protect the American consumer, you might do well to worry less about the methods of 'news' delivery, and more about access to the forms of news delivery. The FORMS of news delivery may concern us all, but HOW the 'news is delivered is properly a struggle for the various media/consumers to resolve, however messy and untidy that may prove. Are we to be treated to yet another example of corporate/government coziness in the name of 'protection'? Access, gentlemen, not specific content, is the hallmark of a free people.
