Media lit post #1-Monopolization of media


Monopolization of media is a problem in our society because only a limited amount of point of views and perspectives are being portrayed so it’s not fair to the people who have different ways of thinking. Monopolization is also bad because all information/news comes from a limited amount of sources, therefore, there are limited options for where you can get your information from. It also only allows big companies to give out information which means smaller companies or local people are forced to have unheard information or point of views.

I believe that less monopolization of media is more important because with less regulation media is still being controlled by big companies so it would be up to them with what is said or not said in the media, but with less monopolization more people could own media sources and they could be in charge of what is said instead of having to go through the bigger companies.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
