Rethinking Media Pluralism

Kari Karppinen

A Fordham University Press Publication

Donald McGannon Research Center's Everett C. Parker Book Series (FUP)

Media and Radical Pluralism contends that the notion of media pluralism and diversity has been reduced to an empty catchphrase or conflated with consumer choice and market competition. In this narrow logic, key questions about social and political values, democracy, and citizenship are left unexamined. In this provocative new book, Kari Karppinen argues that media pluralism needs to be rescued from its depoliticized uses and re-imagined more broadly as a normative value that refers to the distribution of communicative power in the public sphere.
