The media are businesses that report on scarce occurrences of interest to the public, such as elections, airplane crashes, stock market fluctuations and sporting events. It is generally a term used to refer to methods of communicating to the general public, whether the communicated information is factual or opinion-based. Common media include newspapers, television and radio. The U.S. media landscape is dominated by a very few massive corporations that, through a history of mergers and acquisitions (mostly in the last 30 years), have concentrated their control over what we see, hear and read. In many cases, these giant companies are vertically integrated, controlling everything from initial production to final distribution; the concentration of media ownership isn't just a problem in the U.S. it's happening worldwide.
