Courts in Argentina recently upheld a major law to regulate the size of media companies in the country. However, many are concerned that this law has merely been a way for the government to exert power over a media group that has been critical of its policies. This concern is sometimes reversed in the UK, where many media plurality debates question whether powerful media conglomerates have too much sway over politicians and government. João Carlos Magalhães and Júlio Lubianco, both MSc students in Media and Communications at the LSE, examine the law, its history, and argue that this form of media censorship is part of a regional trend in South America.
