This chapter contextualizes the book’s historical analyses within more recent media developments. It emphasizes the continuing relevance of the book’s analyses of news media and public opinion in the 21st-century technological environment. The chapter connects durable tendencies in corporate news to newer commercial and technological developments in online communication and social media. It explains how emerging forms and uses of media technology often provide new means of influence for corporate media and other centers of concentrated political-economic power. The chapter also presents an empirical analysis of neoliberal news coverage during the 2017 debate over repealing the Affordable Care Act. It ends by discussing possible media reforms that focus on institutional and systemic changes in U.S. political communication.

Keywords:   social media, misinformation, commercialism, Affordable Care Act, media policy, media literacy
