    and stop the expectation that people have unlimited time and talent to find news for themselves.  Your solution is a good one.

    The yellow journalism that was practiced was done at a time when people like Hearst could own a majority of the media.  The regulations put into place after the collapse of his media empire have been undone since the Reagan administration and allowed Rupert Murdock to build an even worse and bigger media empire to control what people see and hear.

    Requiring local ownership or control of local news organizations might be a step in the right direction, but limiting the number of media outlets that one person or corporation can own would be very helpful.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
