But competition takes care of this, right?

From Billmon:

Editorial independence (i.e. the freedom to tell the reader or viewer what you think they need to know, rather than what you think they want to hear) has always been a rather strange artifact in a competitive, capitalist industry like journalism.

And I don’t mean that state controlled media is the answer by the title of this post. I just want to point out that corporate media comes with its own problems when it comes to message control.
