These 6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America

These 6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

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.

The Evolution of Aesthetics: The Origins Of Music And Visual Art | Moments of Genius | Big Think

The Evolution of Aesthetics: The Origins Of Music And Visual Art | Moments of Genius | Big Think | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

One of the great mysteries of art is why it exists. Although our desire to create and enjoy art is so widespread that it appears as natural as eating or reproducing -– nearly every culture draws, dances, sings, recites poetry and tells stories -– the origins of human aesthetics are not clear-cut. What’s peculiar is that from a biological point of view art appears to serve no adaptive advantages whatsoever.
