First came the journalist and proprietor as crusader. Then came the pressure of revenue: ‘Marketing’ started to make inroads, but content was still king. Then came the whoosh of intense competition, back-breaking costs for 24/7 TV, readers who wanted newsprint that wouldn’t stain the sofa, and the corporate magnate who happily provided the bail-out.  Barring a few independent media houses, most are now majority-owned by big businesses who, unknown to the news consumer, are silently pushing their agenda. “I heard it on the news”; “I read it in the paper” – how much do they count for today?
