Corporate Control of Information

Program #SCHH002. Recorded in New Brunswick, NJ on November 12, 1993.

Media mergers are larger and more common than ever: Viacom/CBS, Disney/ABC and AOL/Time Warner. When will the acceleration of corporate control of media stop? On the heels of the successful anti-trust suit against Microsoft, politicians from as opposite sides of the spectrum as Senator Paul Wellstone and Mayor Rudolph Giuliani agree that media monopolies ought to be the Justice Department's next target. Herbert Schiller, author of Information Inequality, discusses how a lack of a communications policy regulating media conglomerates poses serious consequences to the functioning of a democratic society.

He was the author of many books, including Culture, Inc.: The Corporate Takeover of Public Expression and Information Inequality. He passed away in January 2000.
