The National Geographic Magazine has been in my home since I was a little kid and that was a long time ago.
There wasn’t much fanfare about it, but a week or so ago it was sold for $725 million dollars to 21st Century Fox.
AKA: Rupert Murdoch’s media empire.
It’s bad enough that Murdoch controls so much of the media worldwide, television, radio, newspapers, and publishing, but now National Geographic.
Murdoch’s media empire manages information. It tells you what it wants you to know and how you should think about it.
Am I the only one worried about this? I shouldn’t be the only one. There should be outrage and serious concern that one man has this much accumulated power and that so many people believe Fox News is fair and balanced.
