New Humanist Forum: “Who Owns National TV News?”

Posted by on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017 @ 3:52 pm.


CARBONDALE, Ill. - The next New Humanist Forum is Sunday, January 15th at 12:15pm at Carbondale Unitarian Fellowship, 105 N. Parrish Lane, Carbondale, Ill.

Eileen R. Meehan, SIU professor in the College of Mass Communications and Media Arts, will present "Who Owns National TV News?" Most coverage of the 2016 presidential election focused on the "horse race" and personal friction between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Generally ignored were the corporations that own operations and run them as profitable businesses that advance their owners' vested interests.

Eileen R. Meehan researches media ownership, the structure of media corporations, and how ownership and corporate structure shape corporate decisions about what we get from the media.

The New Humanist Forum is a member-led group devoted to exploring together all the many facets of "what it means to be fully human." To attend or participate one does not need to be a Fellowship member.

The community is invited to this free event.
