Today, I will be presenting to the class The Walt Disney Company and their global Dominance relating to the question of the week which is: How does globalization shape media product and industry?
My presentation will brief the different media holdings that the The Walt Disney Company has so that everyone has a better understanding of how dominant the company is. Further we will dive into how Disney goes about reaching the world on global and local levels. These efforts include the film, tv, internet, theme parks and consumer.The conversation that always immediately follows this different divisions are what are there effects. Because Disney is an American company, its influences are heavily american. As an american its harder to understand how problematic that is because that's life how we know it. In other our culture is pushed over theirs. In addition to certain themes that we see repeated in the content of the productions and films, there also leads to criticism of how accurate their journalist division is. The question can be brought up: Are there any bias in their news and are we not getting the full story.
I believe as the Disney company grows we will see less room for different ideas and opinions. The Disney Company's efforts to the own all parts of media will deny us the opportunity to see the different cultures and opinions of everyone
