Bush-Cheney Seek Media Monopoly?

FCC chief defends media ownership plan - Yahoo! News: "Democratic Commissioner Michael Copps described the commission's decision approving the measure as 'one that would make George Orwell proud,' referring to the English author best known for his novels critiquing totalitarianism and for popularizing the phrase 'Big Brother is watching you.'"

The decision is likely to be challenged in court, and members of Congress are attempting to invalidate it with legislation, though the Bush administration has threatened to thwart those efforts.
