African Americans and Mass Media explores the relationship among the lack of media ownership diversity, political and economical influences, and policy development influencing media ownership. Richard T. Craig addresses the concern of growing media monopolies and the decline in minority media ownership since the passing of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Focusing the policy argument on this act and the deregulation of media ownership, this book explores the jeopardy of diminished ethnic media ownership, as well as the influence on content. Observing Black Entertainment Television in the last five years of African American ownership and the first five years of conglomerate ownership—paralleling the first decade after the Telecommunications Act was passed—the book gives particular attention to the changes made to information programming on the network. Craig asserts despite the overwhelming presence of African Americans holding executive positions with the network, Viacom, BET’s current owner, influences the networks programming and relegates the cultural identity of the network to profit interests. BET is observed as a case study reflective of the importance ethnic media and perspectives reflective of cultural ethnic identities, targeting ethnic audiences. The book chronicles the significance of ethnic media, drawing particular attention to African American media in the United States, and advocates for increased communication policy development bolstering minority ownership.

The articles included in this twelfth edition of Annual Editions: Mass Media reflect three issues of concern at the beginning of the new millennium. 1) The extent to which the U.S. government and legal system should rightfully be involved in regulating either media messengers or media messages. 2) The ongoing debate over how news is selected and packaged, ethical practice, and coverage of war and terrorism. 3) A heightened awareness of a media landscape profoundly altered by corporate mergers and technological change.

The concentration of private power over media has been the subject of intense public debate around the world. Critics have long feared waves of mergers creating a handful of large media firms that would hold sway over public opinion and endanger democracy and innovation. But others believe with equal fervor that the Internet and deregulation have opened the media landscape significantly. How concentrated has the American information sector really become? What are the facts about American media ownership? In this contentious environment, Eli Noam provides a comprehensive and balanced survey of media concentration with a methodical, scientific approach. He assembles a wealth of data from the last 25 years about mass media such as radio, television, film, music, and print publishing, as well as the Internet, telecommunications, and media-related information technology. After examining 100 separate media and network industries in detail, Noam provides a powerful summary and analysis of concentration trends across industries and major media sectors. He also looks at local media power, vertical concentration, and the changing nature of media ownership through financial institutions and private equity. The results reveal a reality much more complex than the one painted by advocates on either side of the debate. They show a dynamic system that fluctuates around long-term concentration trends driven by changing economics and technology. Media Ownership and Concentration in America will be essential reading and a trove of information for scholars and students in media, telecommunications, IT, economics, and the history of business, as well as media industry professionals, business researchers, and policy makers around the world. Critics and defenders of media trends alike will find much that confirms and refutes their world view. But the next round of their debate will be shaped by the facts presented in this book.
