David Versus Gannett

Usually, when a writer speaks of a modern day battle between David and Goliath, he is implying a certain amount of sympathy for the little guy. Usually. One wonders if that is the case in a news article on an FCC hearing in Nashville today on ownership of broadcast outlets. In that article, staff writer Ryan Underwood refers to a "David-and-Goliath battle" between "corporate conglomerates" and "grass-roots voices of community-minded radio stations."

If sympathy is intended for the grass-roots and the community minded, one can be glad. Obviously, if The Tennessean is sympathetic toward community owned broadcast media, then it also is partial toward local ownership of print media. Isn't it?
