These 6 corporations control 90% of the media in America

This infographic created by Jason at Frugal Dad shows that almost all media comes from the same six sources.

That’s consolidated from 50 companies back in 1983.

NOTE: This infographic is from last year and is missing some key transactions. GE does not own NBC (or Comcast or any media) anymore. So that 6th company is now Comcast. And Time Warner doesn’t own AOL, so Huffington Post isn’t affiliated with them.

But the fact that a few companies own everything demonstrates “the illusion of choice,” Frugal Dad says. While some big sites, like Digg and Reddit aren’t owned by any of the corporations, Time Warner owns news sites read by millions of Americans every year.

Here’s the graphic:

  1. You should take these graphic charts and make t-shirts out of them! I’d buy one….Great work!

  2. GE Sold NBC to Comcast. GE doesn’t own anymore Media nor does it own Comcast. Comcast initially bought 49% of NBC and then later bought the remaining shares out for Billions. I would substitute Comcast for GE and then list the properties

  3. Thank you very much for this. This will help me so much in uncovering the truth about our loss of freedom of the press..
