There are many different disadvantages of allowing the newspaper ownership to be concentrated in the hands of a small group. Firstly, when concentrated in the hands of a small group, the authenticity of the news could decrease.

A small number of people are more likely to highlight their own viewpoints based on their own biases in the newspaper, as compared to a large number of people with varying viewpoints. Since a news outlet always has to adopt a neutral perspective, a small number of people are likely to tamper the news as compared to a large group of people.
