<P>New CIMA report: Captured News Media: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Montenegro </P></SPAN>(CIMA newsletter 08.06.2016): <SPAN>Why are independent media failing to take root or survive in many countries? </SPAN> We at the Center for International Media Assistance suggest that part of the answer is connected to a concept known as media capture.
<DIV>Media capture occurs when media owners provide supportive news coverage to political leaders in exchange for favorable government treatment of their businesses and political interests. It is a systemic governance problem: political leaders and media owners work together in a symbiotic but mutually corrupting relationship.</DIV>
<DIV>As part of our continuing stream of research and analysis of this phenomenon, we are pleased to publish <A style="TEXT-DECORATION: underline; COLOR: rgb(0,0,255); FONT-STYLE: italic" href="http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001itzmPD-7FO8yrkScpEfHEAYO62yZgWy9hPmfCPdcMwDtRG_KmFKVUjQ1h9xB15HqXIeMroHL4esBhXD7ytCw-SB5rfmTdY69c9wL3pgBRxCF5M6opKu7RHUpuY8VuT3l982JkTBx6mpPHRpbyQzXOEmgHjXPVLC4AHE0yCxSKVlM7h8fmJW5Fc2FqM_QTV6vMpPfcxi4mLSU4EE4pD0dxmidlBH56X5Fj78fUTNUyzWVKjUc-CwKGYCINw4RPgWVzLRhIqQ-WgM=&c=ejfXdgpa_c04vhMriW9_iM-7zgaCBfuoWe0CRUNl04zhYonq_8Tcdw==&ch=Dddgh6vbNyVW5A3B5cf65SIUDaaMnZv4IbhRO6J9dQlCNz_iOrHxMw==" shape=rect target=_blank alt="http://www.cima.ned.org/publication/captured-news-media-bosnia-herzegovina-serbia-montenegro/" track="on" linktype="1">Captured News Media: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Montenegro</A>.
