How Media Consolidation Threatens Democracy: 857 Channels (and Nothing On)

Trump’s FCC plans to continue a decades-long, lobbyist-backed effort to allow media consolidation, helping corporate bottom lines but hurting independent journalism.

by Earlier this week, we wrote about a pending deal between Sinclair Broadcasting and Tribune Media. Sinclair hopes to buy Tribune, a move that will allow the company to broadcast news to 70 percent of Americans.

 

But the deal has raised eyebrows. The company is notoriously close with Trump, and also favored George W. Bush when he was president. The company’s DC office produces conservative commentary and news segments that paint Republicans in a favorable light and distributes them to local stations around the country. Some worry that Sinclair hopes to create a competitor to Fox News, operating out of local television stations across America.

If the deal does go through — anti-trust regulators and the FCC will have to approve it — it will only have been possible because earlier this year, Trump’s FCC chair Ajit Pai relaxed rules preventing media consolidation. Like much the FCC deals with — net neutrality, internet privacy — media consolidation is a dull-sounding topic that is nonetheless very important. It has a direct hand in the quality of American journalism, and it dictates how accountable that journalism is to its audience.

We put together an explainer on the topic. Here’s what you need to know.

What is media consolidation?

Media consolidation is the concentration of ownership of our news sources into the hands of fewer and fewer corporations.

Why should I care about it?

Bill Moyers explains how media consolidation has grown since the 1980s

One of the few things the American people agree on is that the mainstream media is woefully inadequate. According to a 2016 Gallup poll, only about 20 percent of Americans have confidence in the television news and in newspapers. Donald Trump effectively harnessed this distrust during his campaign, and still attacks the media before his fans when he wants to prompt applause.

Americans recognize that the media does not represent their views, and media consolidation is largely to blame. It depends how you count, but, today, about six corporations control around 90 percent of our broadcast and print news — down from 50 corporations in the early 1980s.

This means that national and even local news coverage priorities are dictated from afar —
and by business leaders, not by journalists on the ground. It means that as print and broadcast journalism struggles to remain profitable in the face of free, online alternatives, hard financial decisions that affect reporters and the stories they tell will be made in corporate boardrooms. And it assures that some issues — issues in which corporate America is uninterested — go uncovered, while some voices — particularly female, minority and immigrant voices — rarely make it into print or onto the airwaves.

How did it happen?

From the time the Federal Communications Commission was created in 1934, through the 1970s, the US government largely acted to preserve media diversity and prevent media consolidation, putting in place regulations that discouraged any one corporation from owning too many newspapers or television stations or from reaching too large an audience. “The widest possible dissemination of information from diverse and antagonistic sources is essential to the welfare of the public,” Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black wrote in 1945, blocking a merger between the Associated Press and other newspaper publishing companies. It was a popular viewpoint at the time — preventing media consolidation was seen as strengthening the First Amendment.

But in the 1980s, Ronald Reagan’s FCC Chairman Mark Fowler brought a new, deregulatory view into vogue, and the federal government’s efforts to prevent media consolidation began to unravel. A watershed moment came a decade later, when Bill Clinton’s decision to sign the Telecommunications Act of 1996 handed lobbyists a major victory. The law was a massive dose of deregulation that dramatically raised caps on the number of local newspapers and television stations a single corporation could own, and the percentage of the national audience a single corporation could reach.

In a way, the media’s coverage of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 illustrated the perils of a corporate media. “The three big networks that were really dominant then basically didn’t cover the bill,” Zeynep Tufekci, a sociology professor and writer on the internet, politics and society, told the public radio program Marketplace last year. “They just kind of ignored it.”

When corporations control media coverage, they can keep the public in the dark about legislation that hurts the public interest but helps their bottom line.

Even though many people now get their news online, a recent Pew Research Center study found that 57 percent of Americans get their news from television, 25 percent from radio and 20 percent from newspapers. Further, many online outlets are owned or funded by the same large media corporations.

Importantly, it’s businesses and politicians in our local communities that have the greatest impact on our lives. Increasingly, however, journalists at local broadcasters and newspapers are having their priorities dictated by corporations with little knowledge of the communities they cover. The gap left behind is one that most online outlets won’t fill. For all the great journalism that sites like BuzzfeedVoxandTalking Points Memo (to name a few we follow) produce on federal lawmaking and international corporations, these outlets do not have a reporter covering city hall or the leaky chemical tank at the local manufacturing plant.

Columbia Journalism Review’latest issue looks at the state of local news and the growing problem of local news deserts. Media consolidation has the effect of squelching local reporting in favor of syndicated reports. Mother Jones reported in 2014 that only 1 in 4 local TV stations actually produce their own content.

“You have these viewing choices across local stations, but you don’t really have alternatives if they are presenting the same thing,” media researcher Danilo Yanich of the University of Delaware told Pew. “That’s what’s wrong with it.”

Trump’s FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is excited to deregulate further. “There are synergies that are possible that our rules need to make sure we don’t prohibit pre-emptively,” he said in MarchOne corporate favor he has offered up is a proposal to unwind net neutrality provisions. Net neutrality isn’t directly related to media consolidation, but — like the Telecommunications Act of 1996 — the coverage of net neutrality illustrates the perils of corporate media. This issue, while perennially one that motivates activists, often receives very little news coverage. This may be because, as Tufekci theorized on Marketplace, some of the companies that allocate budgets for newsrooms also deliver information via the internet and thus have a stake in the net neutrality debate.

Comcast, an internet service provider, recently merged with NBC Universal, which, in turn, has a stake in or partnerships with many other media brands.Even more relevant to this discussion, however, are Pai’s efforts to relax media ownership laws further. He has already started to do so; as a result, Sinclair Broadcasting, a company that owns local news stations, is planning to buy Tribune media, giving the company control over more than 200 stations.If that happens, these stations’ local news coverage would be another victim of media consolidation.

TOUGH LOVE

Love never fails.

IS TOUGH LOVE, LOVE?

Concerning; Personal Relationships, not social nor political threats to our community.

[This article concerns interpersonal relationships. While One Free Press is often critical of persons whom we feel are threats to democracy, liberty, and peace; these are not our daily personal relationships. ]

IS TOUGH LOVE AN ACT TO HELP, AND NOT ENABLE A PERSONS FAILURES

We, as individuals, form our own personal philosophies. How we are going to approach others, situations, challenges, and interactions. We put this puzzle together from culture, family, friendships, experience, and sometimes with our religion as primary or partial guide.

FAMILIES

Ivan Family  CC   Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 Generic (CC BY-SA 2.0) 

Sometimes we have set statements, quotes, or pop culture wisdom that lead us more so than the other formative influences I’ve mentioned.
For instance; “tough love”. When we feel others have failed us, and are failing in their life, we use “tough love”. In lieu of what we know as compassion, love, and family. Jesus was a master teacher on those who fail at life, and who fail others. His reaction was love, compassion, and a miraculous empathy. Jesus demonstrated anger, as a lesson, toward those who strayed from how his father or his house should be represented.

POP QUOTES TO LIVE BY?  (From: 43 Good Cultural…Taglines)

Culture of the mind must be subservient to the heart.
Culture: the cry of men in face of their destiny.
Different roads sometimes lead to the same castle.
Diversity creates dimension in the world.
How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?
In this country we have no place for hyphenated Americans.
It is never too late to give up your prejudices.
Let America be America, where equality is in the air we breathe.                            Recognize yourself in he and she who are not like you and me.
Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.
The highest possible stage in moral culture is when we recognize that we ought to control our thoughts.
The peoples of the earth are one family.
The terrible tyranny of the majority.

 

“How many times should you forgive your brother?”, he ask. No tough love here. I think our weakness, weariness, of facing the same emotional and personal challenges over and over, cause us to look for escape. That escape may be “tough love”, severing our connection with individuals and the emotional pain. But; “it’s for their own good, how else will they learn until they hit rock bottom. I don’t want to be an enabler.”

Jesus didn’t want people to hit rock bottom, he put out his hand and lifted them up from his everlasting spring of love and compassion. “Seven times seventy.”

BeatenDown

You may have to use wisdom, enforce boundaries, offer alternatives, but giving up on someone is not necessary, nor is it Jesus. Lean on the everlasting spring of compassion and love from Jesus, from his example. Let his teachings permeate your 21st Century life. As will his spirit. Deeply examine and cross-examine what you really believe, and who you really are in the eyes of others.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. ( 1 Cor. 13:8, NIV)

RICH PEOPLE GOT NOBODY

What I do not like about wealthy Americans, are those who think their bank accounts make them super citizens who can buy elections, control legislation, and dictate what the media publishes.

RICH PEOPLE GOT NOBODY

RICH PEOPLE GOT NOBODY

RICH PEOPLE GOT NOBODY TO LOVE

THEY’RE GONNA GET YOU EVERY TIME

WELL, I DON’T WANT NO RICH PEOPLE

DON’T WANT NO RICH PEOPLE

(Randy Newman – From – Short People Lyrics)

CHUCK SCHUMER FELT HE MUST DEFEND RICH PEOPLE:

In a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) called on God to bless the rich and corporations.

“I am not against the rich or corporations. God, bless them,” said Schumer.

I’m sure Chuck Schumer likes Rich People. He probably spends 1/3 of his official time on the phone soliciting donations to pay his million dollar committee and committee chair fee’s (or dues). Ask Mr. Schumer what the Senate Democrat Committee dues are, all of them, personal and to the DNCC for all members. Waterboarding couldn’t get it out of him.

I don’t dislike rich people personally. Some have used great intellect, perseverance, energy and time becoming wealthy. God, bless them. Let them eat Blue Fin Tuna.

ANTITRUST1

What I do not like about wealthy Americans, are those who think their bank accounts make them super citizens who can buy elections, control legislation, and dictate what the media publishes. We badly need election reform. It would take the wealthy oligarch’s in America out of our democracy, other than 1 person, 1 vote, and 1 voice.

Very wealthy people who do this should be ashamed, feel like traitors, bullies, and I hope the scotch in your hand spills on your shirt or blouse.

On September 11, 2012, terrorists, including those affiliated with al-Qaeda, attacked U.S. facilities in Benghazi, killing U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and U.S. officials Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty. (https://goo.gl/UNRcr1)

“U.S. intelligence agencies provided extensive warning of the deteriorating security environment in eastern Libya, including al-Qaeda‘s expanding operations and the mounting risk to U.S. personnel and facilities”

These threats were well-understood by even the most senior officials in Washington; then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has testified that she ―was certainly aware‖ of this reporting,”

“Despite the growing danger in Libya, State Department officials in Washington denied the requests for increased security…….

from U.S. personnel on the ground. Instead, the Department insisted on aggressively reducing security support in Libya, disregarding numerous indications that this assistance was still necessary. There is widespread agreement that these actions led to a wholly inadequate security posture in Benghazi, with deadly consequence”

COMPARE WITH ASSESSMENT ABOUT SECURITY WITH HRC’S ACCOUNTABILITY REVIEW BOARD BELOW.

they appealed to Washington for added security. Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood, who led a U.S. military team that, among other things, supplemented diplomatic security in Libya, recommended that the State Department consider pulling out of Benghazi altogether.

Benghazi Accountability Review Board

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton convened an Accountability Review Board (ARB) for Benghazi to examine the facts and circumstances surrounding September 11-12, 2012, killings of four U.S. government personnel, including the U.S. Ambassador to
Libya, John Christopher Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya.

Four Board members were selected by the Secretary of State (HRC) and one
member… was selected by the Director for National Intelligence.

“The Board found that intelligence provided no immediate, specific tactical
warning of the September 11 attacks. Known gaps existed in the
intelligence community’s understanding of extremist militias in Libya and
the potential threat they posed to U.S. interests, although some threats
were known to exist.”

“Systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department (the “Department”) resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.”

“The Board found that certain senior State Department officials within two
bureaus in critical positions of authority and responsibility in Washington
demonstrated a lack of proactive leadership and management ability
appropriate for the State Department’s senior ranks in their responses to
security concerns posed by Special Mission Benghazi…”

Judicial Watch Victory: Federal Court Orders State Department to Conduct a Search of Benghazi Emails of Hillary Clinton’s Closest Advisors

(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch announced that on August 8, 2017, D.C. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta ordered the State Department “to search the state.gov e-mail accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jacob Sullivan,” former aides of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State. The State…

The following report is worth reading in its entirety. Judicial Watch (if you want answers, start here) has taken a substantial lead and continues to this date in exposing the truth, lies, and coverup hiding behind National Security, and the continued restraint on releasing documents by the Trump Administration.

A Judicial Watch Special Report:

The Benghazi Attack of September 11, 2012
Analysis & Further Questions from a Diplomatic Security Service
Regional Security Officer and Special Agent. January 22, 2013

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs’ December 30, 2012, report regarding Benghazi noted,

 

“The Committee has reviewed dozens of classified intelligence reports on the evolution of threats in Libya which were issued between February 2011 and September 11, 2012. We are precluded in this report from discussing the information in detail, but overall, these intelligence reports (as the ARB similarly noted) provide a clear and vivid picture of a rapidly deteriorating threat environment in eastern Libya—one that we believe should have been sufficient to inform policymakers of the growing danger to U.S. facilities and personnel in that part of the country and the urgency of them doing something about it.”

AMERICA’S QUANTUM SOLDIER

When you watch another person activity or action your brain fires neurons as if you were doing the action.

AMERICA’S CREATION OF THE  SUPER SOLDIER

 

Let’s face it America has a very violent culture. Look through your cable TV’s offerings for tonight, the violence, murder, wars (past, present, future) is phenomenal. Besides the Barbie doll situational comedies, and Dwarf lumberjack reality shows, only violence, and murder fill up your remaining selections. I think our male children and likely many females will take the third option. TV censorship has been a downhill slide since Elvis Presley shook his legs on the Ed Sullivan show.

From the FCC webpage:

Obscene content does not have protection by the First Amendment.  For content to be ruled obscene, it must meet a three-pronged test established by the Supreme Court: It must appeal to an average person’s prurient interest; depict or describe sexual conduct in a “patently offensive” way; and, taken as a whole, lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

Indecent content portrays sexual or excretory organs or activities in a way that does not meet the three-prong test for obscenity.

Profane content includes “grossly offensive” language that is considered a public nuisance.

[I think murder, blood, neck chopping, and a very creepy way to kill humans is all the above.]

However, the problem was supposed to have been solved with the TV and Video games rating systems. The television industry controls the rating system, isn’t that amusing. Even so, the few family-friendly rated shows are being drowned out by the preponderance of violent and adult audience rated programs by double. Many scientist and professors signed petitions over the past couple of decades decrying the effects on children, but the Liberal and Balanced news media and the Television industry cried the findings weren’t conclusive enough. Cut the TV off and get on the floor and play with your children.

I played a lot of adventure games years ago, and you went about doing various missions or quest to gain prizes; such as armor, weapons, and gold. The quest was most often; “the camp is running short of food supplies. Go kill 50 Hell-deer to help us.” Or “We are being threatened by the hordes of rabid razor-hogs to the southwest”. Help us and go kill 70 razor-hogs.” There was no end to this murdering of the various vicious mutant beast. Nevertheless, you’re killed with sword, hatchet, bow, or gun on and on. I recall hearing younger players often chat about having been playing “XXX” for 14 hours non-stop. Kids play these games all weekend, until late hours of the night. They skip school to play special events with friends. I know, I took off from work occasionally. LOL.

IMG_om44ee

Sports in America is no longer a leisurely baseball game or a football game with light armor with an occasional pile on. It now consists of announcers sounding like carnival hawkers emphasizing brutal hits, and injuries. Football, hockey, wrestling, boxing, and even basketball is about violent confrontations now, much less about skill or sportsmanship. Regardless of the medical evidence of permanent brain injuries resulting in some sports, we demand hard hits, body slams, power punches, and bone-crushing tackles. But every day or weekend players like good gladiator’s did, risk permanent harm for your entertainment, much as if in an arena in ancient Rome.

CHILDREN SPORTS VIOLENCE

Gun control is impossible while the entertainment violence has increased our threshold of acceptability. There is a unique connection between Gun Control and our addiction to violence. We, like the proverbial “how to cook a frog so he doesn’t hop out the pot story” (very slowly turn up the heat) We, Americans have become numb and unaffected by the increase in violence in our nation. Nightly our news media promotes a violent occurrence somewhere over and over irresponsibly while failing to give a real evening of current world news.

angry child

America has been at war almost continuously since prior to our constitution. As the 1984 slogan; “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.” Our Big Brother or Big mother next year, has us happily hoodwinked. A fat pig ready for the unknown slaughter. The peace movement died, but there is always hope. Those angry Bible-thumping Baptist ministers were right all along.

360_super_soldier_0616

Picture from: (Time Magazine, June 15, 2008)

Thus, enter the breeding of the next generation of the super soldier. This little sampling of violence in American culture is not only affecting the psychology and violent tolerance of this generation, but it’s changing their very brain structure, genes are being turned on and off, and the inheritable DNA of their future offspring will be affected. You say WHAT? Is this an Illuminati, CFR, One World Order, or CIA/NSA conspiracy? Hmm, maybe. But the results are the problem. We may be our own enemy by giving into self-gratification and our baser nature. And every American is guilty. WAKE UP AMERICA!

Why would I imply such a crazy thing:

EPIGENETICS. “The old model of the gene, which dates back to the discovery of DNA in 1953, says that our genes are fixed and unchanging. From eye color, height, and other physical characteristics to behaviors like criminality or saintly acts of kindness, genetics strongly implied that we have minimal control over our biological destiny.” To a large extent this may be true, but when it comes to behavior and disease susceptibility, there is much more to the story.

The study of changes in gene activity, not only based on DNA sequence, but also on life experiences — epigenetics — shows that a person’s experience may directly affect their DNA.” Copyright © 2016 TheHuffingtonPost.com, Inc.

 

SELF-DIRECTED BIOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATION INITIATIVE — A NEW FRONTIER ‘CONSCIOUSOME’


EPIGENETICS AND DNA 

EPIGENETICS

YOUTUBE VIDEO 

 

Google Epigenetics, or search YouTube. Look at the newer data, not 10 years ago when it was just making a stirring. Of course, Epigenetics offers many many positive possibilities for improvement in our lives and for future generations.

Mirror Neurons. When you watch another person activity or action your brain fires neurons as if you were doing the action. Most are hailing this great new discovery. But how about when a video game has a sword slicing and dicing, or MMA fight beating the blood out of some lady on the floor. Our mirror neurons are firing with each punch, our limbs are stopped short by the brain from actually moving our fist, but it’s playing it out. Thus in Cops reality shows, Violent Sports, Video Games, Violent Movies, and headline news if they reported world news instead of mostly anti-Trump news, our children’s mirror neurons are firing away, their brain’s imitating all this.

This is alarming why, besides obvious psychological effects, they have discovered Brain Plasticity. This is where the brain is capable of “rewiring” itself for frequent activities, emotions etc.  Then new discoveries in epigenetics have discovered a limited plasticity to DNA. Research now indicates your DNA and neural pathways are altered by experience, stress, and environment.  This is definitely screaming for more research papers.

There is increasing evidence that epigenetic mechanisms, such as DNA methylation, are present across species, are modifiable by the environment, and are involved in developmental plasticity. (National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health HHS public access).
