Cable networks and news


The media landscape: Who owns what?

Giant corporations own more and more of our news media. Focused only on the bottom line, they’re cutting journalists and gutting newsrooms nationwide.
And because the FCC slashed its media-ownership limits in 2017, corporations will now be able to own the daily newspaper and multiple TV and radio stations in the same market — which will give us fewer voices and viewpoints, and far less local-news coverage. It also means that the low rates of media ownership among women and people of color will continue to plunge.
Consolidation has also long run rampant in the cable and broadband industries, where companies like Comcast would rather spend billions to kill off their competitors than improve their service or build out their networks to unserved and underserved communities.

The FCC and the Justice Department should protect our ability to connect, communicate and organize for social change by blocking dangerous mergers and boosting diverse media ownership.
