The Corporate Packaging of the Public Mind
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.
Herbert Schiller was a noted authority on communications policy and media. He founded the communications department at the University of California at San Diego. 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.
