Tech's Growing Stranglehold on the Media 15.8.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Tech billionaires are often portrayed as champions of innovation and social entrepreneurship in the mainstream media, while their tax evasion schemes and labor abuses go underreported. So, when billionaires like Jeff Bezos and Laurene Powell-Jobs procure major media outlets, we should be paying closer attention, especially in the wake of an election that hinged on media coverage. Billionaire Peter Thiel. (Photo: Ken Yeung ) In July, reports surfaced that a private company known as Emerson Collective LLC had purchased a majority stake in The Atlantic. The news seemed hardly unwonted: the company had a history of media investments, with such outlets as news-summary site Axios and criminal-legal journalism outlet The Marshall Project among its beneficiaries.

Although their complicity in his election is clear and well established, they're continually targeted as if their actions are the primary reason Trump won. But in fact, higher-earning, college-educated whites supported him at even greater rates. It's quite easy to brand the working class as the most rabidly xenophobic and racist group of whites. Whether they're brandishing Confederate flags or vociferously vowing to "Make America Great Again," their beliefs about white supremacy are completely exposed for the world to witness. It's much harder to see how those atop the economic pyramid not only greatly benefit from white supremacy but actually use racism to their advantage -- generally from behind the scenes. In short, when we hold the working class responsible for white supremacy, other whites are absolved of racial wrongdoing. By allowing the spread of civic ignorance, by propagating historical lies and ...
