If a monopoly strikes deals with news organizations around the world, it is almost impossible not to imagine a news monopoly. A news monopoly may act no different than existing monopolies in terms of taking every step possible to ensure a hold on power even at the risk to the consumer. The unlikeliness that a news monopoly would submit to other practices than it does for search engine monopoly and video monopoly also remains a possibility. The dangers of a news monopoly remain to be seen as the news industry has gone through dramatic changes recently. Maybe, a news monopoly would encourage objective journalism if they decide that it would be in their best interest to allow journalists freedom in reporting the news. The competition between an e-commerce monopoly that owns news organizations and a news monopoly that advertises e-commerce may be the competition that either faces in an industrialized news era.
