Michael Powell to step down

The good news: according to the WSJ, Mr. Media Consolidation is throwing in the towel.

The bad news: Finding another Republican to crack down on nipples while further empowering media conglomerates will be a cakewalk for this administration.

Hopefully that link will work. The article is a sterling example of how the WSJ frames the news. I don't know a soul who thinks that making Clear Channel even bigger is a good idea-- but these fellows make it sound like Powell's a hero to small businessmen everywhere.

Did you see it here first, by any chance?
