Based on a literature review and interviews with scholars, this article recaptures and evaluates the political-economic approach to the Dutch media during the 1970s and its subsequent disappearance. The objective of this paper is to contribute to reinstituting that approach. Additionally, this article argues for its heightened salience, as the commercialization of the Dutch media has much increased since the 1970s.
