Media Ownership and Agenda Control: The hidden limits of the information age by Justin Schlosberg

Media Ownership and Agenda Control offers a detailed examination of media

ownership amidst the complexities of the information age, from the resurgence

of press barons to the new influence wielded by internet giants. Much of

the discussion pivots around recent revelations and controversies in the media

industry, such as the findings published in 2012 from the Leveson Inquiry, the US

Federal Communications Commission's ruling on net neutrality in 2015, Edward

Snowden's decision to leak National Security Agency (NSA) documents in 2013

and the legal battles over ancillary copyrights waged in Germany and elsewhere.

Justin Schlosberg traces the obscure and often unnoticed ways in which agendas

continue to be shaped by a small number of individual and institutional megaphones,

despite the rise of grassroots and participatory platforms, and despite

ubiquitous displays of adversarial journalism. Above all, it explores the web of

connections and interdependence that binds old and new media gatekeepers, and

cements them to the surveillance and warfare state. This ultimately foregrounds

the book's call for a radical rethink of ownership regulation, situating the movement

for progressive media reform alongside wider struggles against the iniquities

and injustices of global capitalism.

This book's re-evaluation of the nature of media ownership and control in a postdigital

world will prove to be an invaluable resource for students of media studies

and journalism, as well as all those with an interest in the changing dynamics of

media power.
