Re: The Reason...
The reason for this is Raycom who recently purchased a HUGE amount of Liberty assets needed away around the anti-trust issues. This was due to Raycom would NOW own over 50% of the media/TV stations in markets. So instead of having 2 stations now, you get 1 station that runs syndicated news coverage. Tape it once and reply it on the other stations with a generic background from the 60s.
And breaking up Comcast Communications, ViaCom or Clear Channel won't give you much competition. The amount of money that would be needed wouldn't be there. Especially when CC owns 5+ stations in one market. And they're ALL in the same studio.
