One thought on “This is why they fear the internet…”

  1. August 23rd, 2018:

    ‘[Former leader of Britain’s opposition party Jeremy] Corbyn reiterated that the “stranglehold of elite power and billionaire domination over large parts of our media” must be broken.

    “Just three companies control 71 per cent of national newspaper circulation and five companies control 81 per cent of local newspaper circulation,” he said.

    “This unhealthy sway of a few corporations and billionaires shapes and skews the priorities and worldview of powerful sections of the media.

    “And it doesn’t stop with the newspapers, on and offline. Print too often sets the broadcast agenda, even though it is wedded so firmly to the Tories politically and to corporate interests more generally.

    “Just because it’s on the front page of The Sun or the Mail doesn’t automatically make it news.”’
