The Real Problem with American Media

Anyone who has watched or listened to a broadcast of DemocracyNOW! understands two things; the tragically poor state of the corporate media in America today, and the critical role a truly independent media plays in providing balanced reporting. So when the topic of discussion during last week’s Drinking Liberally turned to an article I had not yet read in Mother Jones on the topic of media ownership I had my suspicions as to it’s authors. Sure enough, as soon as I returned home I logged in to Mother Jones and found an article entitled Why Media Ownership Matters by none other than the sibling duo who collaborated on the critically acclaimed book The Exception to the Rulers, Amy and David Goodman. If you find yourself wondering why the American media does such a crappy job then this article is a good starting point on your path to enlightenment.
