PUBLIC OPINION

progressive, being run by writers and thinkers, the modern Press is almost entirely conservative or reactionary, being controlled by wealthy industrialists. The total single issue circulation of newspapers published in Great Britain is about thirty million copies. Of this some three millions are officially Labour, the remaining nine-tenths being controlled in the main by a few combines of large capital.
Concentration of ownership and control is the keynote of the modern Press. So high are the overhead costs of the factory which produces the newspaper that only the daily with a huge circulation can afford them. The tendency present in so many other branches of industry towards the elimination of competition by trustification has rapidly reduced the number of newspaper firms. Even a paper with a circulation of over three-quarters of a million has been unable to survive. It requires an extremely wealthy man to control a modern newspaper. The number of men who actually control the papers through which the great majority of British citizens get their information is phenomenally small. A few names, such as Beaverbrook, Camrose, Elias, Rothermere, Astor, Cadbury, all but exhaust the list. Yet it is largely on the basis of that information that political judgments are made by the sovereign electorate, for its alternative sources of news-radio apart, which is discussed below-are restricted to the vocational Press which, though influential beyond its numbers, is limited in capital, infrequent in appearance, has often to obtain its non-vocational news from the ordinary Press, and therefore is more a Press of opinion than of news, and secondly, to the local Press which with an occasional exception has most of the bad and few of the good qualities of the national Press.
