The Corporate Packaging of the Public Mind

Program #SCHH003. Recorded in Portland, OR on April 18, 1996.

Corporate control of media is rapidly expanding. The new Telecommunications Act allows media giants to own even more radio, TV, cable and phone services than before. Herbert Schiller contends that the capability of private resource rich conglomerates constitutes the true levers of contemporary power. Their influence and impact on shaping public opinion is enormous.
