Creating a culture of entertainment, advertisers are responsible for turning news into more of a commodity, enabling outlets to piggyback editorial content onto advertising sales through softer news relying more on celebrities, Hollywood blockbusters, food, and entertainment. This essay discusses in brief the effects of globalization on democracy in media in Canada.

From the Paper:

"As Lorimer and Gasher argue, the first and foremost target of globalization is the mass media, creating a so-called "new media" bowing more exclusively to profit motive. With fewer investigative reports dedicated to protecting the consumer and society, this new and increasingly commercial model is driven by "its own internal logic," which essentially requires it to be driven (as opposed to supported) by advertisers (Lorimer and Gasher 278)."
