The Racket: who owns, funds and controls the world’s media?

Six corporations own 90% of the US media. The Murdoch empire is world-wide and growing. The Guardian’s various sections are a rainbow of corporate logos. Does any of this impact on journalistic freedom? The official answer is – of course – “no.”. Ex-FT journalist Matt Kennard takes a different view.

Kennard’s book The Racket: a rogue reporter vs the masters of the universe is available here

And here is the Guardian’s entirely unbiased review of that book. Is it a reasoned rebuttal, or a collection of adolescent sneering, diversion and ad hominem? You decide, dear readers.

    The way the Guardian ties in zionism is a dead give away of their stilted interests.

    With such limited ownership there is no independence they all write and repeat the same thing.
    It creates this feeling that there is a consensus if they are all saying the same thing right? Wrong we are being manipulated into believing govt messages and they are all in support of US hegemony.
