Tonight, we examine the relationship between the media, corporate America, and government. In a country where the "top 1% control 90% of the wealth", tonight’s guest argues that the media system is nothing but a "subsidiary of corporate America." It's a stunning fact that the media received $80 million in campaign ads for the 1980 election and $1 billion for the 2000 election. Large corporations own the television networks, and the sheer number of stations/channels available gives the public the "illusion of choice." Yes, there are tons of channels to choose from, but this "ostensible diversity conceals an actual uniformity." This is why Orwell Rolls In His Grave, which is the title of a DVD written and directed by tonight’s special guest.
