The Power of TV & Radio

If we truly want independent creativity in our culture to surpass the crap that currently dominates, and it is possible with the internet and digital media, we have to address the advantages that come with TV & Radio. Control of the spectrum and cable monopoly is how the commercial interests win. We need mass adoption of net-connected media players in the same places most media gets consumed, on your TV and in the car and that walkman/ipod/phone device for you public transport folks. We need streaming media as well as episodic downloads (podcasts), and its gotta be free to download and mostly free of advertising, if not completely. Otherwise, its just too hard to compete with the generally higher quality that comes from the budgets paid for with spectrum-and-cable-dominant-advertising.
