Link to a series of interviews on future Governments (after Democracy:eek:) includes an interview with Fareed Zakaria. Interesting and desturbing at the same time.

Whoever holds the power of mass media determines which issues are in the public's mind, as well as what the spectrum of acceptable debate is. .

If one entity held "the power of mass media", that would certainly be the case, but that's rare and unlikely in anything approaching democracy. All factions in a democracy use propaganda and all try to manipulate the media to their favor.
