Arsh Chopra Corporate Media and the Threat to Democracy Reaction Paper Period 5 In Robert McChesney’s book Corporate Media and the Threat to Democracy , he begins by claiming that the “free” market is actually unequal and status is determined by income and wealth. This is a very true statement because those who are in possession of greater wealth have more opportunities and more of a voice in the market. Also, on page 48 of his book, McChesney states that “In the commercial marketplace of ideas, something becomes true if you can get people to believe it.” I agree fully with McChesney on this idea. When considering a certain group of similar products that are out on the market, people will be attracted to the one that is the most efficient and available at the best value. This is determined by the purchases of others shopping in the same field of items. By promoting a certain product, buyers will be convinced that it is the best one to have and, as a result, that will become a fact.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
