Introduction

 The media re-present our politics, our social institutions, our governments and us. A plurality of perspectives has been said to be essential in developing an engaged, mutual understanding of the differences and similarities that exist between us as human beings. Media construct our reality and help to define who we are and even who we wish to become. Communication is ‘the creative making of a social order that is confirmed and exercised within communication processes. Relationships are shaped and societal boundaries are formed through this expansive exchange of information. Research has argued that these communication channels should reflect the diversity that exists within society. Such interconnected diversity has been said to be absolutely central to a thriving democracy. To put it plainly, the importance of a mainstream media to the enrichment of our daily lives simply cannot be understated.

1. Who controls the mainstream media?
2. Pros and cons of mainstream media?
3.Is mainstream media a liberal media?
4.Could mainstream media be trusted?

Method of research:

Working back through the numerous levels of stock ownership and bondholder positions, holding companies and offshore subsidiaries, interlocking directorships and corporate law firms, etc. to a layer of genuine control requires an extraordinary exercise in investigative research. Even these paper trails and audit trails will lead to a perceived ownership which is in name only. Nothing really new or eye-opening here.

Simply put, knowledge of the actual ‘owners’ has been made impossible to ascertain in this particular age … for very good reason. Why?

Because “Whoever Controls The Media Controls The World”.

Thus, we as normal people living in this world can only keep on living and trusting the media given and not knowing exactly who or what leads this mainstream media.
