Time Inc. was poised to merge with Warner Communications Inc. in a multi-billion dollar deal that would create the largest U.S. media/entertainment corporation (431). On a much smaller scale, but perhaps of major significance, Channel One piloted a news/commercial in-school vehicle that has critics fuming (271). The government put away,its AM license renewal rubber stamp for the first time since 1981, citing personnel and prize/promotional grounds for its denial (265). The Bush White House began its term of office with promises of access, spontaneity and openness, but press pros exuded skeptical sighs, saying "sounds similar to past presidential assurances" (404). Critics of The Christian Science Monitor continued to doubt the viability of management philosophy and staff changes (381, 432). Very little good was said about the Hazelwood decision, as academics and professionals continued to sift through the ashes of the scholastic press, torched by a restrictive Supreme Court ruling (337, 341, 347, 351, 384, 392). Legal emphasis was being placed less on dangers of libel and more on issues of access (280, 287, 317, 350). A new journal entered the field. Health Communication 1:1 weighed in at 73 pages (276).
