Why Media Consolidation is a Bad Thing

You know that when you go to a new city, you find a different alternative weekly.

What you may not know is that most of them are owned by one company, Village Voice Medis, and VVM has decided to drop all the comics that it is currently running from these publications.

So consolidation gets us a stupid and self-destructive decision, because the conglomerate has to hit "the numbers" for Wall Street, and then it immediately propagates throughout most of the media markets in the US.
