(1) Description of the pattern

Media outlets that are controlled by a small number of corporations often broadcast propaganda that aligns with the interests of those corporations. Information that challenges or opposes those interests is rarely given through mainstream media sources.

(2) Why the pattern is good (i.e. bad)

If media is controlled by corporations, pro-business perspectives can dominate. This will also prohibit poor people and minority groups from spreading their messages.
