The top 20 billionaires own more than the bottom half of Americans. They are all white, mostly men and nearly half of them belong to the same three families (Walton, Koch and Mars).

The top 10% owns 76% of America's wealth and 92.1% of the stock market.

90% of US media is owned by 6 corporations: Disney, News Corporation, Comcast, Charter Communications, CBS, and Viacom. 75% of Americans get their news from the 6 corporations.
