Media Ownership: Who Owns What?

It's hard to keep track of who owns U.S. newspapers, publishing firms, tv stations, radio stations and the like on any given day. Luckily, the Columbia Journalism Review will manage that information for you.

Their "Who Owns What" page features major media-owning corporations, listing their outlets in a variety of forms. The site also presents corporate timelines for several of the largest companies, and has links to media ownership news items as well.

Useful if exploring bias in the media, or if you just want to keep tabs on what's happening to your favorite media conglomerate.
