Who controls television content?
Neatorama had an interesting piece recently called, "Who owns what on television?" I was facinated to see how a few corporations control most of the big media outlets. I think I probably already knew this, but seeing it all laid out was pretty eye-opening. If I were teaching at the moment, which I'm not cause it's the middle of summer vacation, I'd bring this up as a topic of discussion.
As an example, the graphic here, shows all the stations owned and operated by Time Warner.
I'll bookmark this page and come back to it in September to show my media classes.
