With Ben Bagdikian, Dean Emeritus of the Graduate School of Journalism, University of California at Berkeley
The fifth edition of the Media Monopoly is completely updated, revised, and reconsidered in a twentieth-anniversary edition with seven entirely new chapters.
When the first edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 1983, critics called Ben Bagdikian's warnings about the chilling effects of corporate ownership and mass advertising on the nation's news "alarmist." Since then, the number of corporations controlling most of America's daily newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations, book publishers, and movie companies has dwindled from fifty to ten to five.
