The chart every member of Congress should see

This chart illustrates the market capitalization of 3 top tech companies and 4 top media companies. (In billions.)

If you add up the 4 media companies, they are roughly half the valuation of Apple. Even the largest of these media companies, Comcast, is less than half the valuation of the smallest, Google.

Need I do a trend chart, too?

    I think you need several complementary charts … a. political contributions b. number of employees c. net profits … and number of customers might be interesting, but hard to get a meaningful measure.
