|Card catalog description
When the first edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 1983, critics called Ben Bagdikian's warnings about the chilling effects of corporate ownership and mass advertising on the nation's news "alarmist." Since then, the number of corporations controlling most of America's daily newspapers, magazines, radio, television, books, and movies has dropped from fifty to ten. This new edition explores the political implications of this stunning shift, the impact of the Internet and other new media, and the effects of corporate media control on the news and entertainment that Americans see and hear.
