Media: Too Close to Power
Program #LEEM001. Recorded in Chapel Hill, NC on November 11, 1992.The cherished myth that the media are independent, balanced, value free and have no point of view is crumbling. Noam Chomsky, Michael Parenti and others have documented that the media are not objective but rather promote certain biases. Media economics have been transformed. Local small town newspapers are now owned by large corporations. TV and radio stations are increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few. As a result media, ratherthan challenging the status quo, have become stenographers to power.
