Cantwell Calls for Public Vote On Ownership - 2012-11-29 23:21:51 | Broadcasting & Cable

From the article:

... "Cantwell was particularly concerned about the FCC's suggestion that lifting the limits on radio-TV and radio-newspaper ownership was ending "outdated prohibitions." Instead, she said, they support diversity, competition and localism." ...

I am amazed Senator Maria Cantwell made this wishy-washy stand, but of course it is political. Newspapers are nearly dead so its a straw man stand. Let's not forget her fortune came from her relationship with REAL Networks and they have zero use for newspapers.
