Abstract: The literature in Political Science suggests that the access to alternative sources of information is essential in democracies. In theory, we expect that democratic countries have decentralized Media ownership. Therefore, we ask: is it possible to check – empirically – the existence of a negative correlation between concentrated Media ownership and democracy index? To answer this question, we used statistical methods, specially descriptive statistics and correlation test. The experiment confirmed the theoretical prediction: decentralized Media ownership is strongly associated with democratic countries.
