Abstract:For its reach and access by the masses - influencing values, culture and public opinion - the control of and influence in communications has long been essential to those in pursuit of power. Indeed, in countries where there has been an overthrow of an existing regime, forces leading change first seize control of the broadcast media. The primary reason for such control is for access to the masses, to 'inform' and 'control' them.
