Re: Pat Buchanan's Column A Never-Trump Press in Near Panic

From: Glen [Email him]

Trump has a media problem. I think he should promote “diversity in media” by adopting and pressing the following planks:

  1. Enact and enforce antitrust legislation to break up the national and transnational media cartels and media monopolies.
  2. Outlaw and require sale of all existing foreign equity or debt stakes in any FCC broadcast license holder.
  3. Prohibit any US citizen from holding any financial stake, whether by equity, debt, permanent license of copyright or trademark, in more than one FCC licensee.
  4. Convert all FCC licensees and all Cable Television and Satellite Television franchisees into common carriers required to sell all their broadcast time to non-related parties by public auction.

There, I think that should do it. What are the media masters going to do? Get really mad at Trump? Hammer him 24/7/365? Call him a “really, really mean, vile racist”?
