From a Reader

I received a message from a reader (THANKS!) in response to what I wrote about corporate ownership of news sources.

From the September Harper’s Index;

Number of appearances made by corporate representatives on US network nightly newscasts last year: 955

Number of appearances made by labor representatives: 31

And I suspect that the bulk of those 31 representatives of labor were on PBS, which is funded but not owned outright by corporations.
