This paper examines and analyzes the rise of global news conglomerates in the world of print and television news. It shows how the media conglomerates like Time Warner and News Corporation are seeking to establish complete global dominance over print and electronic journalism. The paper then compares and contrasts the growth of the news divisions of these two media conglomerates and reveals that one of the primary motivations for this expansion has been to promote conservative ideology in the guise of objective news reporting.

From the Paper:

"Ultimately, the Democratic victory in the 2006 midterm elections and subsequent control of Congress beginning in 2007 may signal the end of this long era of global media conglomeration expansion. One of the fundamental safeguards of democracy is freedom of the press, but the freedom and objectivity of the press has been systematically undermined by these global media conglomerates, for they have replaced objectivity and reasoned political debate with political bias, de facto censorship, and news broadcasts bordering on propaganda. Democrats in Congress, and increasing numbers of Americans have recognized that responses such as reestablishing the Fairness Doctrine and implementing media reforms have become absolutely necessary if responsible media coverage of the news is to be restored."
