You think you have an infinite amount of choices within media you read, watch or hear, but choices are slimmer than ever

Simple solution: Turn off the TV, only listen to Rush Limbaugh and read the Drudge Report. That`s all the news you need to know anyway. :D

Let`s see, six media companies, five are liberal, and one is conservative. That seems fair.

Also, regarding the biggest newspapers, in this case people actually have a real choice. You don`t have to subscribe to 50 or more newspapers if you want to read 1 or 2 of them. That`s why MSNBC is still on cable, but the NY Times is going bankrupt. I can chose not to buy the Times, but I get MSNBC whether I want it or not.

This stupid infographic is the illusion of truth.

I have more actual choice in media now than ever. More independent movies, music, news - this guy is just another anti-corporation leftist. Nothing new.

Umm... If "232 media executives control the information diet of 277 million Americans," that`s not 850 subscribers per media executive... it`s closer to 1.2 million per media executive.

These infopics are getting out of hand. This one looks like it was auto-generated by a data parser.

CrakrJak - yes, the information on the net is available, but the majority of people won`t bother to find it, or don`t know how to screen throught he BS to get to it.

Also, the information is available ... "for now".
Every day the Internet gets more and more gov`ment & corp`rat control over it. How long before Google will only go to those 6 media outlets?

Did you know that 90% of raccoon meat is sold by the big 3 raccoon meat conglomerates? Until we regulate raccoon meat sales/distribution, this travesty will continue.
