Could you further define what precisely is at issue in this debate?

No disrespect intended, but I don't see why anyone would argue in favour of media concentration per se. There are understandable and legitimate arguments for *media deregulation,* of which media concentration is an inevitable result, and if that was the topic it would make more sense to me. But media concentration itself is pretty much universally acknowledged as a negative thing (even by people who would support deregulation on principle) and more of an argument in itself against media deregulation rather than something debatable on its own merits, IMO.
