How can I put this? Oh, yeah. We're fucked again. And the hits keep coming.

4. And worst of all, there's not one damn thing we can do about it except bitch.

Those who own NBC, our politicians and us, couldn't care less what we think.

And as little as they care what we think, Comcast who now owns NBC, cares even less.

I guess it's time we all got used to being owned. Either that, or start a 21st century revolution with Xe(formerly Blackwater) and many other companies of their ilk on one side, and us peasants on the other side.

Do you really need to ask which side "our" government will be on?

2. There is a definite trend in the media today!
It seems that all the powerful liberal, progressive voices are being silenced (fired, or "uninvited" like Joan River on Fox News).

Comcast just took over NBC, and there goes KO!

The whole media is being forced to turn to the right. . .further and further to the right.

As this proceeds, our voice will be totally lost. This is the most powerful form of censure I have ever witnessed in my pretty long life (I'm 60). This is serious, folks!

When you see that a freak like Beck is being adulated at Fox, and someone like KO is fired. . .this tells me that we have NO CHANCE to get our voice heard for the 2012 elections.

This is a move toward total fascism. . .and unfortunately, the population has been brainwashed enough already to not realize what is happening!

3. love Keith, but a voice of "reason" might be a stretch...
... a voice of "passioned advocacy." I'll give you that.
