6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America

Corporations

Why are so many incredibly important news stories completely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States?

Why do they seem to want to avoid many “controversial questions” as if they were the plague?  Why does the media tend to label those that are willing to ask the hard questions and seek the truth as “conspiracy theorists”?

Sadly, the truth is that the mainstream media in America does not do much real journalism anymore.

At this point, approximately 90 percent of what you see on television is controlled by just 6 giant media corporations.

That is why “the news” seems to be so similar no matter what channel you watch.

Back in 1983, approximately 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the United States.

Today, ownership of the news media has been concentrated in the hands of just six incredibly powerful media corporations.  These corporate behemoths control most of what we watch, hear and read every single day.

They own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many of our favorite websites.

The six corporations that collectively control U.S. media today are Time Warner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., CBS Corporation and NBC Universal.  Together, the “big six” absolutely dominate news and entertainment in the United States.

But even those areas of the media that the “big six” do not completely control are becoming increasingly concentrated. For example, Clear Channel now owns over 1000 radio stations across the United States.

Companies like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft are increasingly dominating the Internet.
