In the last 15 years, your sources for news have shrunk drastically.
Whereas in 1983, 50 corporations ruled the U.S. news media, by 2004 this
number decreased to a minuscule six corporations.
When Ben Bagdikian predicted this more than 20 years ago in his book The
Media Monopoly, he was called "alarmist". But when he updated his
book in the 1990's, there were already fewer than two dozen media corporations controlling
almost all of America's newspapers, magazines, TV stations, radio stations,
books, records, movies, videos, wire services and photo agencies. He predicted that
the number would fall even farther, and was greeted with skepticism. But his critics
have been proven wrong as an increasingly small number of corporations control an
increasingly huge percentage of the media market.
