Is there room in the already established media (even the "old" media) industry besides the already-made likes of Ted Turner and Rupert Murdoch? I'd think that would be a cool dream. Probably just a dream though for now. What do you think? Politics aside, I know they are supposed to be good entrepreneurs and own stuff beyond the news.

Not if the establishment has anything to say about it. :wink:

Personally, I have an issue with any person owning more than one form of media or controlling all media in one location, which is Murdoch's current bread and butter. It just goes against everything that free speech is supposed to be.

This was more of a curious question.
