In the public realm that almost never happens anymore. Outside of three or four of the largest cities there is only one paper available and most of these are owned by chains controlled by the large papers like the NYTimes, the Chicago Tribute or the Los Angles time. They even freely print each other's opinions and so-called news stories so freely as to be completely homogenous in there out put.
They all preach "diversity" except in that one most important realm - opinion! The NYTimes has even written that when it comes to Donald Trump they no longer feel they have any obligation to journalist ethics! As if they hadn't abandoned those years ago.
|A media system wants ostensible diversity|
that masks uniformity.
