Keywords: media concentration; horizontal and vertical integration; biased competition
Summary/Abstract: The concentration of media property in a small group of individuals and the creation of an uncompetitive environment have a negative effect on the impartiality and independence of media subjects. Market monopolization bears the risk of creation of journalists, who are dependent on political and business groups, and leads to speculation in the coverage of the current topics. Such an environment violates the main principles of democracy as well as media pluralism, which leads to infringement of constitutional laws and freedoms of citizens and poses a threat to their informed participation in the civil society.
