"By 1996 Conrad Black controlled over half of the daily newspapers in Canada. In 2000 the bulk of those holdings were purchased by CanWest Global Communications, a broadcast network controlled by the Asper family. These unprecedented developments prompt a key public policy question: how much control over newspaper content should be in the hands of owners, given the need for diversity of information in the exercise of healthy democracy?" "Canadian Newspaper Ownership in the Era of Convergence takes up this question as it investigates the current state of Canada's newspaper industry in light of increasing concentration of ownership, multi-media or cross-platform convergence, and controversy over the actions of proprietors."--BOOK JACKET
