Fake News Alert: Media Conglomerates Convince FCC That Facebook Can Replace Local News Stations

When assessing media ownership and consolidation in both the United Kingdom and United States, it becomes clear that while there are hundreds of different publications and broadcasters, there is only an illusion of choice, and that freedom from government control and the competitive nature of the free market have failed to truly allow diverse media content and regulate media conglomerates, who now possess an extraordinary amount of power and influence. In the United Kingdom, 70% of national newspaper circulation is controlled by three different companies, leading the Media Reform Coalition (2014: 1) to claim that concentration has “reached endemic levels and is undermining the quality and diversity of output on which citizens rely.” Meanwhile, in the United States, just six companies control 90% of the media: a stark difference from 1983, when fifty companies controlled 90% of the media (Lutz 2012).

The Curran et al. (2009) study found that Americans were less informed about hard news than countries such as Denmark and Finland, where public sector broadcasters had a larger share of the audience.

Moreover, it found that public service models “minimize the knowledge gap between the advantage and disadvantaged” in comparison with an American-style private ownership model, and therefore “contributes to a more egalitarian pattern of citizenship”

While one cannot establish causation, it is possible that one of the factors that has contributed to low voter turnout in the United States and high voter turnout in Denmark is the differing media coverage of hard news in the private and public led media spheres. This insinuates that private media ownership has a negative impact on media content overall, as the content is increasingly failing to fulfil its function of promoting informed citizenship and democratising information to the public at large.

A further criticism of the privately owned media models is that they are often beholden to big business, due to their reliance on advertising to maintain a profitable venture (Herman and Chomsky 1998). The implications this has for media content stems from the “corresponding influence of advertising values on the news production processes” (Mullen and Klaehn 2010: 218), namely, a conflict of interest could easily arise due to potential discrepancies committed by advertisers. It is entirely plausible that the private media’s reliance on advertising could mean that negative content about the advertisers are omitted from public debate, and that “the probability of an event/issue becoming news is: inversely proportional to harm the information might cause investors or sponsors” (McManus 1995, cited in Rolland 2006: 942). This theory is supported by a scandal that rocked The Telegraph newspaper after it was alleged by a former employee (who resigned over the issue) that The Telegraph contrived to omit damaging reports about HSBC’s banking practices out of fear of losing out on lucrative advertising deals. According to Peter Oborne (2015), “you needed a microscope to find the Telegraph coverage” of reports that HSBC had been participants in a global tax evasion scheme — an issue that was perceived by most other national broadcasters and newspapers as hugely important. Therefore, this illustrates that the reliance of private media outlets on advertising revenue can have a damaging impact on media content through omission of stories that are clearly in the public interest.
