Senate Media story provocative reading

Regarding your story on the media study in The Hill Times "Senate's doing one of the most ambitious media studies in history," (June 30). I wanted to write to you and congratulate you on what I thought was a fairly thorough, non-partisan story. I found you managed to cover a lot of the issue, while still remaining coherent throughout. I especially appreciate the compiled data on media ownership in Canada. I've been waiting for someone to do this for some time. This is a very timely issue, and I'm glad to see someone attack it so ambitiously. I hope you will continue to follow the story. Perhaps you would consider doing a follow-up piece which would give more details as to why the previous study recommendations were not approved by Senate?
