Media Systems

Oh, Vadim, you don’t need to remind me. I was just mistakenly considering 3 a.m. to be a continuation of Sunday evening. After all, this weekend has been the weekend from hell, and I’ll be up for a few more hours, anyway. No news there.

Canada
Primary: Libertarian (privately-owned, market-driven companies)
Secondary: Social responsibility (with the intent of protecting Canadian culture against U.S. imports)

Japan
Primary: Authoritarian (history of public broadcaster NHK dominating the scene with funding from one long-ruling party, and laws prohibiting cross-media ownership)
Secondary: Libertarian (increase in commercial media ruled by the market and funded by ad revenues)

U.K.
Primary: Social Responsibility (content quotas, laws governing trial coverage, publicly funded, etc.)
Secondary: Libertarian (privately funded, for-profit publications with some private broadcast media)
