The Simpsons are cruising for a bruising

I hope they got high ratings for that season finale. That was too funny. Probably the most cohesive and funny take on media consolidation and the free speech issues that arise from it. Basically, Mr. Burns buys out all the media outlets in order to bolster his reputation. Lisa starts an alternative newspaper that drives Mr. Burns nuts. He continues to mess with her operation until he basically drives her out of business.
But just as Lisa is accepting defeat in the face of the monolithic media empire owned by Mr. Burns, she realizes that many of the citizens of Springfield have set up their own newletters. Of course, The Simpsons has to slap at everyone that comes in their path, so they make fun of the general quality of the ordinary-people newsletters and the opinions within. But you also get a sense of the power in numbers. Mr. Burns can't shut them all down.
Funny and cool. Anyway, I'm cheered that the blogosphere, etc. has managed to capture the attention of The Simpsons' writers.
And yes, they do mention the name of Rupert Murdoch. How could they not when he and Mr. Burns are morphing into the same person?
