Globalisation and the media
- Main contributor
As globalization of trade rapidly expands, the mainstream media is being accused of inadequately reporting the issues. This program canvasses some of the dissent by exploring conflicts of interest within the media and showing how technology, such as the camcorder and the Internet, is challenging the monopoly of big news broadcasters. Differences between mainstream and "indie" media are highlighted in coverage of the economic summits and related protests in Genoa and Seattle. Among those interviewed are Danny Schechter, director of Mediachannel.org; Katharine Ainger, editor of New Internationalist magazine; and Chris Cramer, president of CNN International News.
