Best Answer

I'll start backwards, a conglomerate is a company which consists of a group of different divisions. Many times each division seems to be a different business, but they are all connected under one establishment. It can also be called a multi-industry company.

Media refers to a section of the business industry that specializes in communication. This can take the form of telephone, telegraph, computer, newspaper, radio, movies and television. In a conglomerate, it might be all of them, each with it's own division.

A Global media conglomerate, therefore, would conduct their business, through their various divisions, throughout the entire world, or on a global scale.

Problems of media conglomerate?

It allows for companies to have a great deal of power over what people are viewing. Conglomeration implies that one company (Disney) can be joint to a television broadcast (ABC), a movie network (Touchstone Pictures), a music company (Virgin), a distribution company (Walmart) and creates a concentration in wealth and optional media. Since there has been a deregulation in media laws in the early 1980s (loss of power for the FCC) it has allowed more companies to create conglomerates. The biggest issue is that media conglomerates focus on profit and treat their viewers as consumers rather than citizens.
