*NOTE: This infographic is from last year and is missing some key transactions. GE does not own NBC (or Comcast or any media) anymore. So that 6th company is now Comcast. And Time Warner doesn’t own AOL, so Huffington Post isn’t affiliated with them.
This site has a current breakdown by media type.

Today the CEC is coming to Oxnard to give a status update on the NRG power plant. It is happening now!
The meeting started at 3pm at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center for those who are available and interested, but public comment will start at 5:15!
The California Energy Commission will be coming to Oxnard today the 27th to give a status update on their decision making process for the NRG power plant!
As you may know, a couple weeks ago the California Coastal Commission voted against the power plant, which gives us more momentum since the hearing this summer. We need to build on that momentum by pushing the CEC to follow the lead of the coastal commission and recognize the unfair pollution impacts on Oxnard and the dangers of putting a power plant on the coast.
There will be opportunity for public comment beginning around 5:15pm!
