Media Matters

In Aug 2001 Elizabeth Murdoch and Matthew Freud tied the knot, at a sumptuous wedding in Blenheim Palace. A perfect marriage of media and psychology, with limitless possibilities.

If you're interested in just how few people own the media outlets where we get the majority of our information from, try Googling 'Who owns the media'. You'll see we're down to about 10 corporations, and the speed of mergers and acquisitions has ramped up recently, as can be proven by watching an hour of British TV...

It's not much better elsewhere, with wall-to-wall game shows, talent contests, sofa exposes on the lives of mini-celebrities. Shame on us for watching that crap, and thank goodness for the internet.
