Information Poverty and Political Inequality: Citizenship in the Age of Privatized Communications.
Murdock, Graham; Golding, Peter
Journal of Communication, v39 n3 p180-95 Sum 1989
Discusses connections between the organization of communications and information facilities (focusing on technological innovations and "privatization"), and the nature of citizenship in Great Britain. Argues that when provision of information is entrusted to the privatized marketplace, then people's access to information becomes dependent on economic, political, and technological constraints. (SR)
