User: advantages of private media ownership

Weegy: There is a wide range of different types of private broadcaster - from giant multinational corporations run by some of the richest and most politically powerful men in the world to small, local FM stations. [ The category is artificial, since what divides them is as great as what unites them. What they do have in common, however, is that they are owned by private interests - usually a company that seeks to make a profit, though sometimes a non-profit making trust. In most cases, broadcasting will be under the terms of a licence granted on a periodic basis by a public authority. How prescriptive or restrictive are the terms of that licence will also vary. Sometimes a broadcasting licence will expressly prohibit the broadcasting of news. This is the case with the licence granted to the South African multinational M-Net, for example. M-Net is happy to provide pure entertainment channels, so elections, with their turmoil and debate, pass it by entirely. [1] More often, a broadcasting licence will lay down certain terms under which news or current affairs can be broadcast. Sometimes this will include prescriptions as to what election coverage should be carried. There may also be an explicit public service component to the licence - for example, obliging the licensee to carry public education programmes. READ MORE : ]
