The texts "Corporate Media and the Threat to Democracy " by Robert McChesney and "How Corporate Concentration Changed a Television Room" by James McLean argue that the media must represent diverse views and opinions for a functional democracy to exist. The democratic role of the media is to recognize important issues and to allow its consumers to form their own opinions about these issues. A small number of corporate interests control most of what the media produces, which influences what is expressed and how it is communicated to the public. I argue that media concentration is a threat to democracy because it interferes with the publics right to learn about its society. The media feeds the public information that is believed to be true, but in reality, these corporate powers restrict the variety of information that is being conveyed to the public.
