The Cost Of Free Speech

Today you live in a society where you can say anything you want. You can criticize anyone and everyone. You can mock or insult those in power and they are not allowed to do anything about it. Or so you think. You'd think that's what the United States' constitution garuntees, but it does not. It only garuntees that the Government cannot stop you. Big Business can.

Why is it that all of America's TV stations are owned by less than 10 people? Why is it that NBC, ABC, CBS, Warner Bros. and FOX own a majority of the other channels out there? There is no free speech. If you say something that angers the people at the head of these studios, it never gets broadcasted. Period.

Freedom of speech is threatened, and no one is able to fight back.
