  • "Big Media, Big Money is a lively and scathing critique of the contemporary communications industry, examining how media ownership and the profit-making motive affect the messages we receive in alarming ways. Through close readings of recent news events and critical examination of corporate influence, Bettig and Hall conclude that current interconnections among media, big business, government, and education pose a serious threat to democratic communications. The second edition includes three new chapters, covering the contemporary Hollywood film industry; the changing landscape of the music industry; and "ad creep," the proliferation of advertising into previously ad-free venues such as schools and children's television programming."
  • "Bettig and Hall present a lively and scathing critique of the contemporary communications industry. They explore recent news events and challenges posed by the Internet and the effects of copyright control, as well as growing corporate influence in the newsroom and the classroom. The authors conclude that current interconnections among media, big business, government, and education reflect capitalism's trend of concentration of wealth and power-posing a serious threat to democratic communications."@en
