Thinking About Media, Pt. 2

This archive gathers reports focused on the ownership, practices, and regulations of the media. Also it examines the current tendencies, perceived biases, and censoring of the media. The focus is on the structure and control of the media—whereas the “culture” archives contain reports about the content and products of the media. In keeping with this focus there is also an emphasis on what is often called "alternative" media sources and their role in society.
