The Real Question

I want to know who are the most influential news providers. Who are the biggest `reality shapers`? Whose realities are the shaping? I'm not at al a fan of CT's but my imagination is vivid. So imagine a company with franchises in the countries and languages that really matter. Reaching minds that really matter. To the point. Let's take a closer look at the BI-revenue list. Two types of companies dominate:

  • (DP) Digi Platforms
  • (NC) News conglomerates

NC's

  • Number 10: News Corp (Rupert Murdochs populist imperium
  • Number 09: Baidu (The heavyly controlled and censored Chinese Google)

DP's

  • Number 05: Facebook (Billion+ Socialites)
  • Number 01: Alphabet (Read Google)

Others: Innovating Dinosaurs

  • Bertelsmann (6) from print to e-media
  • Disney (2) tinsel less, stream more

Others: Traditionalists (TV, Radio, Cable)

  • CBS (8)
  • Viacom (7)
  • 21st Century Fox (4)
  • Comcast (3)

Catching my attention in the tail

  • Time Warner (16) , Survived AOL, we all know CNN
  • CCTV (19). Multi lingual Chinese state broadcaster
  • Mediaset (23) The Berlusconi clan outfit dominating TV in Italy and Spain
  • Time Inc (30) Suffering pure print spin-of from TW with the weeklies "Time" and "Sports Illustrated"

Pressing Questions

Where are the agencies, grand old men and regional internationalists?

  • For example
    • Thomson-Reuters?
    • Economist, FT, WP?
    • RT, Al Jazeera, Euronews

Where are the emerging champions?

    • From "Latina"?
    • From "Indian subcontinent "?
    • From "Japan and SE-Asia"?
    • From "China"

Think global, talk local?

    • Who provides local language outfits with regional foreign and world affairs?
    • What recipes and flavoring they receive?

Are we all parrots?
