Encourage local ownership of stations

Many TV stations are now investor owned by media conglomerates instead of local family groups. The investors behind the conglomerates are more interested in squeezing every dime out of their stations rather than investing in the communities the stations are licensed to. Newsrooms have been gutted in the name of keeping profit margins up and doing minimal journalism with what little staff and money is granted to the newsroom instead of what many of the old family own stations were like before they were sold to media groups (KING/KGW/KREM under the Bullitt family for example).
