Sunday, Jan 15th “Who Owns National TV News?”
 Eileen Meehan, SIU professor in the College of Mass Communications and Media Arts, will present “Who Owns National TV News?”  Most coverage of the 2016 presidential election focused on the “horse race” and personal friction between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Generally ignored were the corporations that own operations and run them as profitable businesses that advance their owners’ vested interests.  Eileen R. Meehan researches media ownership, the structure of media corporations, and how ownership and corporate structure shape corporate decisions about what we get from the media.
