500 Channels, Six Companies

Only six companies own almost the entire media spectrum from TV to print to film and the internet.

It is a scary oligarchy that is in charge of what we all see every day no matter where we turn for news and information. This web site would make a great lesson for press freedom and press independence. I’ve seen a similar one before, but this one is much more interactive.

So, we may have more choices on our cable box than ever before – but in reality it is a knob with six stations.
