Rich media, poor democracy
- Main contributors
Alper, Loretta; Robb, Margo
Argues that journalism has been compromised by the corporate leadership of conglomerates such as Disney, Viacom, and AOL Time Warner to produce a system of news that is high on sensationalism and low on information. Suggests that unless citizen activism can reclaim the commons, this new corporate system will be characterized by a rich media and an ever more impoverished democracy.
