The public sphere presumes a marketplace of ideas, where numerous interests and points of view compete for attention. But what if the mass media are largely in the hands of a few narrow interests? By the early 21st century, just a handful of corporations controlled a dominant share of the mass media industry in the United States, so it seems fair to assume that those corporations could hold a few narrow interests. If control of the news media belongs only to a specific few, what prevents them from censoring or distorting information that harms their interests? Discuss the importance of a free press in terms of a "marketplace of ideas," then discuss the dangers and possible implications of private control.
Two of the core democratic values - popular sovereignty and majority rule - are particularly pertinent to the topic of public opinion. Popular sovereignty means that the highest source of political authority is the will of the people. Majority rule means that the government follows the course of action preferred by most people. How is it possible to add up the disagreements and different attitudes about all the issues facing the country into a clear expression of the people's will? Make an argument for public opinion polling as the means to measure the preferences of the majority. Be sure to consider alternative views to your argument and address the implications
