"Succession": Fiction or reality?

Media moguls control our culture, and their motives are often based in and around retaining family control of their companies. How does this play out, in fiction and reality?
In this panel, panelists will discuss the similarities and differences of "Succession" and real life media mogul families. How do we navigate a cultural landscape dominated by a few families, and what can the show teach us about the behind the scenes motives of major media companies.
