This infographic is from a series created to visualize the ownership of news media across multiple platforms (mainstream media and digital), and particularly to show that there are 24 major companies around the world that essentially own all the world’s news.
Commercial journalism is affected by the ownership’s leanings (political, financial, etc), and even journalism and news produced by government will have some form of bias. Does that make journalism produced via Twitter feeds or Facebook exempt? Not at all. But an informed consumer is an aware consumer, and this guide may help if you know the backgrounds and leanings of the ownership.
This infographic is a deep dive into the ownership of US markets news outlets. Please click on the infographic for a deep dive into the usually unseen connections news that spans local to national and even international markets.
