Abstract:

In 1983, 50 corporations controlled a majority of American media. Now that number is six. And Big Media may get even bigger, due to the FCC's consideration of ending a rule preventing companies from owning a newspaper and radio and TV stations in the same big city. Such a move would give these massive media companies free rein to devour more of the competition, control the public message, and further limit diversity across the media landscape. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Senator Bernie Sanders - one of several senators who have written FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski asking him to suspend the plan - joins Bill to discuss why Big Media is a threat to democracy and what citizens can do to fight back.
