SUNDAY syndicated program 1/23/11 (hr3)

The FCC has approved the merger of Comcast and NBC Universal, one of the largest media mergers in history. The deal will give Comcast unprecedented control over media content and the physical network that delivers it. Allan discusses this development with Free Press President and CEO Josh Silver, who believes the FCC has opened a Pandora’s Box of mega-mergers that will have dire consequences for media and the internet.

Later in the hour, an exchange between MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell and Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) about the Arizona shooting highlights the reluctance by many politicians to answer straightforward questions based on established facts.
