the new media monopoly a completely revised and updated edition with seven new chapters

Anyway, Bagdikian is a solid writer, explains consolidation and ownership without getting needlessly jargon-y and tells a compelling story with a good amount of examples and research. Maybe journalism-spirited people should really choose law instead of writing for a paper. I probably should have taken the hint and read it then because now a lot of it felt pretty redundant knowing what I know as someone who has worked with the independent media center. Not bad if you want to know more about media ownership. All orders guaranteed and ship within 24 hours. About this Item: Beacon Press.

Ok, I'm paraphrasing, but that was his paraphrased solution. Drives home the essential point - that media is no longer free because ownership is so condensed into the hands of half a dozen billionaires. This book set out some pretty disturbing events from the past. A bit too much sermonising. It is a very troubling book, but it also explains the reasons for the conservative domination of the media over the past 25 years and how corporations shape the world in a way that's most profitable to them.

While I agree with the chilling effect of too centralized media ownership, I felt this was not sufficiently updated and relevant for the 21st century. While I agree with the chilling effect of too centralized media ownership, I felt this was not sufficiently updated and relevant for the 21st century. Two chapters that stick out for me are one about the big five media owners today and their rise to power and the second is about Gannett's newspaper chain. Perhaps the next edition will do so - or read this book as a foundation then read Clay Shirky's books and those in a similar vein as companion to get a better understanding of the bottom up effects digital media could have on the foundation of centralized ownership of 'mass' media.
