In a world full of “fake news” and media skepticism, many are beginning to take a critical look at who owns and produces news for the many TV channels and digital news outlets out there. We’re finding that a powerful few seem to own the most, and therefore have complete control over a lot of the news that the masses read, watch, and share.
This infographic focuses on the top 100 digital news outlets, and the companies that own them. It shares not only the companies with ownership but also the individual or even larger company that owns them. The Washington Post is a well-known digital news source that many trust to bring them the news, but would it surprise you to find out that Jeff Bezos is the owner of Nash Holdings, which owns The Washington Post? Not only does he own one of the most valuable companies in the world but he also controls a popular news source, that’s a lot of power! Which of the other owners are you surprised to see on this infographic?
