INFOGRAPHIC: The U.S. Media is Controlled by Just Six Corporations

by Jerry Robinson on August 1, 2013 · 4 comments

Thirty years ago, 90% of the media that most Americans consumed on a daily basis was controlled by 50 corporations. Today, in our age of corporate consolidation, mergers, and acquisitions, the number of corporate entities that control the national media has dwindled to just six. These include:

1. General Electric (Comcast, NBC, Universal Pictures, etc.)
2. News Corp. (FoxNews, Wall Street Journal, etc.)
3. Disney (ABC, ESPN, Pixar, etc.)
4. Viacom (MTV, Paramount Pictures, BET)
5. Time Warner (CNN, HBO, Time, etc.)
6. CBS (Showtime, NFL.com, etc.)

In 2010, these corporate behemoths racked up $275.9 billion in combined total revenues.

      Amazing how mergers have just created these beasts.
      Maybe that is how we get back at you for the Holocaust. By running all the media, making millions and frying your brains. Or maybe, just maybe, we happen to be good in business and it is not some great conspiracy. Do you even hear yourself? LOL
