Brings together an ex-"60-Minutes" producer, a United States congressman, as well as some of the country's leading intellectual voices on the media to examine the mix of business, politics and idealogy that is the modern mainstream media. From the very size of the media monopolies and how they got that way to who decides what gets on the air and what doesn't, this film moves through a troubling list of questions and news stories that go unanswered and unreported in the media. Does the corporate media reflect public opinion or create it?
