FourFour2 article The media has long been used to make headlines in the world of politics, but it is increasingly being used to advance the interests of corporations and their owners.
A new report by the Media Transparency Network (MTN) finds that the media has been the main target of a new class of companies and individuals, using it to pursue their political and corporate agendas.
This new media is the most powerful force in the US political and economic landscape, according to the report.
The report takes a look at how media ownership has evolved in the past decade, and examines the rise of the so-called corporate media.
In its 2016 annual report, the MTN said that “the influence of the corporate media in the political process has grown over the past 20 years.
According to the MTI, the corporate press has a disproportionate role in shaping the public discourse.”
The MTN report says that “corporate media outlets have a disproportionate influence on the media’s coverage of national politics, influencing how the media reports on policy, government and business issues.”
It also argues that the corporate-owned media has made its influence clear in terms of its influence on how politicians, bureaucrats and the general public think about government and its priorities.
“Corporate media are increasingly being seen as the media in charge of the news, rather than a ‘public service,'” the report said.
This is in part due to the proliferation of social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
In this new media environment, corporations and billionaires are using social media to spread their political messages.
Corporate news outlets have also used the public domain to promote their own agendas.
For example, the New York Times reported in 2016 that the newspaper had reached a milestone with its $300 million purchase of the New Yorker magazine, a magazine with a profitable readership, and a loyal following in part because of its critical reporting on the 2016 presidential election.
These types of corporate media outlets are able to get the word out, and then disseminate their political views through the media and through the online platforms.
Media companies have also sought to use their influence to influence legislation.
Last year, the United States House of Representatives passed the Stop Online Piracy Act, which was a key part of President Donald Trump’s anti-piracy efforts.
The legislation was written by the New America Foundation, a corporate-funded think tank that advocates for increased government regulation.
On the other side of the political spectrum, in 2017, a report from the American Enterprise Institute found that the Supreme Court has been more inclined to overturn state laws that are deemed to violate the First Amendment’s free speech rights.
It noted that the Court’s decisions in cases like Citizens United and McCutcheon have made it more difficult for citizens to exercise their right to free speech and freedom of association.
The MTN found that, in addition to influencing the public and politicians, corporations are also able to influence government policies by paying for them.
A number of the report’s findings are similar to those that the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) made in the 1970s and 1980s.
At the time, the NED reported that the “government and corporate media have long had an important role in influencing policy, public opinion, and policy outcomes.”
“This relationship has become increasingly important,” the report continued.
“Corporate and government media have increasingly become powerful allies in the media-dominated process of shaping public policy.”
The impact of corporate-sponsored and corporate-financed political advocacy can be found in a number of ways, according the report, including the use of campaign donations to influence the government and the influence that these entities have over policy.
Another aspect that has emerged is the ability of corporations to influence how governments are funded.
One example of this is the $20 million in donations that the Rockefeller Brothers Fund made in 2016 to defeat Republican Sen. Elizabeth Warren in her primary election against President Donald J. Trump.
Warren has been accused of “stealing” campaign funds and then using the funds to support Democratic candidates.
Additionally, a number the report found is that corporate money is used to influence policy, including by supporting corporate initiatives that benefit their interests.
“[Corporate] money is increasingly used to push policy that benefits corporate interests, like tax cuts for corporations and other corporate welfare, and corporate welfare programs that benefit the wealthiest Americans,” the MTNs report said, adding that “political spending by corporations has been increasingly funded by corporate dollars.”
Another example is the lobbying and lobbying-related activities of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the NRCC’s political arm.
Among the groups that received funding from NRCC were the National Rifle Association, the American Petroleum Institute, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the AFL-CIO and the American Cancer Society.
Despite this, the report concluded that “there is a
