Glasgow University Magazine Who Owns The Media? The 6 Monolithic Corporations That Control Almost Everything We Watch, Hear And Read Back in 1983, approximately 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the United States. Today, ownership of the news media has been concentrated in the hands of just six incredibly powerful media corporations. These corporate behemoths control most of what we watch, hear and read every single day. They own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many of our favorite websites. The six corporations that collectively control U.S. media today are Time Warner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., CBS Corporation and NBC Universal. But it is the "big six" that are the biggest concerns. Back in 1983 it was bad enough that about 50 corporations dominated U.S. media. --Ben H. Today, six colossal media giants tower over all the rest. Time Warner Home Box Office (HBO) Time Inc. Walt Disney ABC Television Network Disney Publishing ESPN Inc.

AMY&PINK The Sirens Sound // In Street We Trust s Trend Briefing covering "7 Consumer Trends To Run With In 2014" Growing numbers of consumers can no longer escape an awareness of the damage done by their consumption: to the planet, society, or themselves. But a mixture of indulgence, addiction and conditioning mean that most can’t substantially change their consumption habits. The result? A never-ending guilt spiral. Which creates exciting opportunities for brands that combine tackling this guilt spiral with consumers’ endless status seeking (still the driving force behind all consumer behavior). Indeed, GUILT-FREE STATUS will be the ultimate indulgence in 2014. Known by all. Visibly guilt-free. Warning: this trend is NOT about GUILTWASHING.

News Republic Une enquête était en cours jeudi en Russie contre un journaliste qui a appelé sur le ton de la plaisanterie Vladimir Poutine à envoyer des forces armées dans sa région pour protéger la population locale contre les fonctionnaires corrompus. Une enquête a été ouverte contre Roman Romanenko, rédacteur en chef d'un journal de Vologda (500 km au nord-est de Moscou), "conformément aux exigences de la législation actuelle", a indiqué à l'AFP la porte-parole du parquet local Oxana Vinogradova. Elle a été lancée à la demande du gouverneur de la région de Vologda, Oleg Kouvchinnikov, a-t-elle précisé. M. "C'est comme si j'essayais d'expliquer une blague à quelqu'un qui n'a pas le sens de l'humour", a confié à l'AFP Roman Romanenko, indiquant avoir été interrogé par les enquêteurs lundi. "J'observe que l'atmosphère se gâte en Russie", a-t-il dit." Sa lettre, écrite au nom des "habitants de la région de Vologda", a largement été reprise sur l'Internet russe.
