Mistaking crony capitalism for free enterprise.

Allowing the rich to control public discourse.

Allowing tremendous consolidation of media in just 6 corporations.

I just hope it’s not too late.

It makes them sound like elitists and what is sillier than a crop of elitists decrying what they perceive as an unfair advantage of an elite; one has to wonder what changes they desire in the system to enable their ascendancy.

Simply because they state such sentiments in the opinions is not the same as them really believing the words. The practiced guile of lawyers is legendary and their ability to lie without legally lying is the key to their abilities and their pay grade. They do not seek justice. I think that their intent was to give more influence to the wealthy and they did that.
