7 Things About The Mainstream Media That They Do Not Want You To Know

7 Things About The Mainstream Media That They Do Not Want You To Know - Based On A Photo By Doug WaldronHave you ever wondered who controls the mainstream media?  In America today, we are more “connected” than ever.  The average American watches 153 hours of television a month, and we also spend countless hours watching movies, playing video games, listening to music, reading books and surfing the Internet.  If someone could control the production of all of that media, that would make them immensely powerful.  They would literally be in a position to tell people what to think.  Well, what if I told you that there are just six enormous media conglomerates that combine to produce about 90 percent of all the media that Americans consume.  Would that alarm you?  It should alarm you.  The truth is that our attitudes, opinions and beliefs are greatly shaped by what we allow into our minds.  After all, they don’t call it “programming” for no reason.  Even those of us that realize that we are connected to “the matrix” probably greatly underestimate the tremendous influence that the media has over us.  We live at a time when it is absolutely imperative to think for ourselves, but most Americans are being absolutely overwhelmed with information and seem more than content to let others do their thinking for them.  Sadly, this is greatly contributing to the downfall of our society.

And of course the mainstream media desperately does not want you to look at “the man behind the curtain”.  They just want you to stay plugged into the “programming” that they are feeding you without asking any questions.

Fortunately, a growing minority of Americans are waking up and are starting to reject the mainstream media.  An increasing number of people are beginning to recognize that the mainstream media is the mouthpiece of the establishment and that it is promoting the agenda of the establishment.

So why is the mainstream media so bad?  The following are 7 things about the mainstream media that they do not want you to know…

#1 The Mainstream Media Has Very Deep Ties To The Establishment

Did you know that the president of CBS and the president of ABC both have brothers that are top officials in the Obama administration?

The big news networks have developed an almost incestuous relationship with the federal government in recent years.  But of course the same could be said of the relationship that the media has with the big corporations that own stock in their parent companies and that advertise on their networks.

This is one of the reasons why we very rarely ever see any hard hitting stories on the big networks anymore.  The flow of information through the corporate-dominated media is very tightly controlled, and there are a lot of gatekeepers that make sure that the “wrong stories” don’t get put out to the public.  As a result, many of the “big stories” that have come out in recent years were originally broken by the alternative media.

#2 The Mainstream Media Gets Things Wrong Very Frequently

Even prominent members of the mainstream media admit that this is the case.  For example, during a recent speech at Quinnipiac University CBS anchor Scott Pelley confessed that journalists in the mainstream media “are getting big stories wrong, over and over again”

“Let me take the first arrow: During our coverage of Newtown, I sat on my set and I reported that Nancy Lanza was a teacher at the school. And that her son had attacked her classroom. It’s a hell of a story, but it was dead wrong. Now, I was the managing editor, I made the decision to go ahead with that and I did, and that’s what I said, and I was absolutely wrong. So let me just take the first arrow here.”

#3 The American Public Does Not Consider The Media To Be Very Trustworthy

Trust in the mainstream media has definitely been slipping.  In fact, a Gallup poll taken last year found that distrust of the media had reached an all-time high.  According to that poll, 60 percent of Americans “have little or no trust” that the media is reporting the news accurately.

A separate Rasmussen Reports survey found that only 6 percent of all Americans consider the news media to be “very trustworthy”.

Hopefully this trend will accelerate and a lot more people will stop trusting the media blindly.

#4 The Mainstream Media And The Politicians That They Worship Hate The Fact That They Cannot Control Internet News Sites

In the old days, the mainstream media had a virtual monopoly on the news.  But these days, anyone with an Internet connection can put up a news site, and this is driving the establishment absolutely bonkers.

For example, Barack Obama is known to have a great dislike for the alternative media.  The following is from a recent WND article

NBC News Political Director Chuck Todd says President Obama was making it “clear” at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend how he feels about the rise of Internet news sites like Politico, Buzzfeed and … well, WND.

“He hates it.”

Appearing on “Meet the Press” Sunday morning following Saturday night’s media, politics and celebrity soiree, Todd explained the president’s disdain for independent online news sources was showing during his speech.

“It did seem … I thought his pot shots, joke-wise, and then the serious stuff about the Internet, the rise of the Internet media and social media and all that stuff – he hates it, OK? He hates this part of the media,” Todd said. “He really thinks that the, sort of, the buzzification – this isn’t just about Buzzfeed or Politico and all this stuff – he thinks that sort of coverage of political media has hurt political discourse. He hates it. And I think he was just trying to make that clear last night.”

#5 The Mainstream Media Is Extremely Liberal

When it comes to politics, the mainstream media is far more liberal than the general population is.

For example, one survey found that 41 percent of American voters believe that the average reporter is more liberal than they are, while only 18 percent believe that the average reporter is more conservative than they are.

A very disturbing UCLA study on media bias discovered that the vast majority of media outlets are “left of center”…

Of the 20 major media outlets studied, 18 scored left of center, with CBS’ “Evening News,” The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times ranking second, third and fourth most liberal behind the news pages of The Wall Street Journal.

And even MSNBC has confirmed the liberal bias of the media.  According to MSNBC, mainstream journalists are far more likely to donate their own money to Democrats than they are to Republicans… identified 143 journalists who made political contributions from 2004 through the start of the 2008 campaign, according to the public records of the Federal Election Commission. Most of the newsroom checkbooks leaned to the left: 125 journalists gave to Democrats and liberal causes. Only 16 gave to Republicans. Two gave to both parties.

#6 Six Mammoth Media Corporations Produce About 90 Percent Of The Media That Americans Consume

As I mentioned at the top of this article, there are six giant media behemoths that control almost all of the media that we consume.  These corporate giants own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, video game makers, music labels and even many of our favorite websites.

The media ownership chart posted below originally comes from a previous article that I authored entitled “Who Owns The Media? The 6 Monolithic Corporations That Control Almost Everything We Watch, Hear And Read“, but it has been updated to reflect some of the latest information.  The power that these companies have is so vast that it is hard to put into words…

#7 The American People Are Absolutely Addicted To The Mainstream Media

In a previous article about the media, I noted that the average American watches 153 hours of television a month.

When you allow that much information to be downloaded into your brain, it is going to have a dramatic impact on how you think.

Americans are more “connected” than they ever have been before.  This is especially true of our kids.  They are constantly on one sort of electronic device or another.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article by Daniel Taylor

According to a 2010 LA Times report, young people spend on average 53 hours a week watching TV, playing video games, and sitting at the computer.

Facebook users spend about 15 hours a month on the social networking site.

People are walking – and driving – blindly while texting, sometimes walking into fountains and even falling off cliffs.

If that Los Angeles Times report is true, that means that our young people are spending more than 200 hours a month connected to the media.

But we are only awake for about 480 hours a month.

When it comes to influencing the American people, nobody has more power than the big media companies do.

And until we can break this sick addiction to the mainstream media and get people to start thinking for themselves, we will never see widespread changes in our society.  As long as people are being “programmed” by the mainstream media, they will continue to express the opinions, attitudes and beliefs that have been downloaded into their minds.

Please share this article with as many people as you can.  It is crucial that we wake as many people up as possible while we still can.

  • Rodster

    There’s a reason it’s referred to as the Govt Media Complex.

  • K

    I do not even watch the national news anymore. We call it MSM, mainstream media. We ought to call it MOP, ministry of propaganda. Whether you are talking about the news or the banks, or many other areas of society. Too few, control way too much. Michael, your book arrived just three days after I ordered it. Considering I chose standard shipping, excellent shipping time. Sorry no review, saving it for my vacation.

    • JAH666

      Turning it off is the best thing any of us can do to fight back. When your friends and family start talking about this or that on TV, say “sorry, we don’t watch TV” and check out the look on their faces. We’ve been a Zero TV Home since 1998 and love that look. And we don’t miss TV one tiny bit.

    • Graham

      MOP (Ministry of Propaganda)…

      Good one. Everybody here should use that line from now on instead of MSM. See how long it takes CNN (etc) to pick up on it.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse


      I hope that it is good reading for your vacation. 🙂

      And I would love to hear what you think about it after you read it. In fact, if anyone has any feedback on the book please feel free to post it after one of the articles.


      • Louise in MO

        My sight is very impaired and I can only read on the computer (magnification software) or download books onto my iPad (very large font). I checked the itunes store and it isn’t on their listi as yet.

        Any thoughts?


    I away thought the news was pretty right wing. It seems to me that the really rich control the news not the liberals.

    • Bad Kitty Cat

      I don’t believe it is either “right” or “left”, as I talked to someone on the left who is truely unhappy with the media! (Genuine left wing ideas, not what the media portrays as left.). It really truely is whatever is on the agenda of the “really wealthy”. This whole “left” and “right” division is really just to divide people…

    • markthetruth

      The Rich Control Everything !!! Who are we Kidding.

      the end…

    • whiskeywagon

      That’s exactly what they want you to think! “L v R.” How about there is no difference between the two parties? If there were, you’d actually see laws that one side passed being overturned by the other, yet that is NEVER the case. I’ve watched this for 60 years and it’s always the same. The only difference is that each election cycle new people take a side. Wake up folks! There’s only one side and you aren’t on it!

      • JAH666

        Those six media giants that control everything are themselves part of a world-wide, intertwined group of ultra-powerful corporations that are, in turn, controlled by a number of mega-corporations under the most powerful families on Earth. They always were and they always will be. I used to think that was the stuff of conspiracy nuts, but those ultra-powerful people don’t even try to keep it a secret anymore.

        • Graham

          New Scientist Magazine released the data in Q2/2012 of who the 147 corporations are that control 85% of the worlds wealth.

          The names of the board of directors running such corporations was even more enlightening.

          • JAH666

            Thanks. I hope more and more people will wake up, and learn the truth about their world.
            Tune In, Turn On, Opt Out

    • BonusGift

      Funniest comment of the day.

      • RICHARD

        How can it be funny, It’s the truth, What it really boils down to is the super rich are running this world and this country. Somebody name me one super rich person that is a liberal. I mean super rich not just rich.

        • BonusGift

          You cannot be serious: for example, George Soros.

        • bill gates

        • TX4Life

          Any celebrity. Take your pick.

        • Robert (qslv)

          Maria Bartiromo, CNN money honey and member of the Council on Foreign Relations!

        • Keywee

          I don’t think many people here are quite grasping what you mean by “super rich”. Very few Hollywood type celebrities are even close to super wealthy, they have just enough to shut them up and keep them entertaining the peasants.

          Come to think of it I don’t think they get what you mean by liberal either. Bill Gates and George Soros? Super wealthy, yes, liberal, well I think that’s debatable. It’s one thing to talk the talk and throw a little money to charity as a token gesture, it’s quite another to actually accept a downgrade in one’s own lifestyle in order to allow others a chance in the game of life. Names like Rockefeller are what we’re really looking at when we talk about super rich, and I don’t think they have ever been accused of being liberal.

    • Louise in MO

      It is the very rich Liberals who control the media. People like George Soros, Al Gore, Michael Moore, Oprah, etc.

  • tray2000

    the main stream media is the forth branch of the government, one in the main stream media will ever ask a question that might get the sheep to think,…. WHEN YOU CONTROL THE MEDIA YOU CONTROL THE CONVERSATION

  • otter1111

    That’s why none of these scandals will affect Obama, no matter how bad they get. The mainstream media won’t go after him like they went after Nixon, in fact they will cover for him.

    • PanzerMeyer

      Totally agree with you.

    • Jodi

      Agreed. Rush Limbaugh was saying nothing is going to touch Obama. I’m afraid we are stuck with him.

      • markthetruth

        Where Not Stuck with anything, We are Just ” WIMPS ” and don’t want to interrupt our Activities .

        the end…

        • Rodster

          Agreed, but it’s how the govt media complex and the public school system have conditioned us over the last 40-50 years so Mission accomplished !

          And now the govt wants to make sure it stays that way by buying up all the ammo, disarming American citizens while stockpiling their own inventory. We have said it here many times but even today Rush admitted we have become the Banana Republic of America.

        • Jodi

          Yes, I agree with this!

        • JAH666

          Sad, and true. Mindless sheep.

        • Tweety Byrd

          Your right Markthetruth!
          What’s made the People WIMPS is 13 years in the Government Schools.
          People are afraid to go against their Social and Poltical Groups for fear of missing the Parties.
          Just like in High School,don’t wanna offend their Clique,because their in the In-Crowd to go to the Parties.
          They haven’t change since High School.

      • Ironically, Rush Bimbo is and has been a part of the problem. Just like Pawn Hannity and others, they supported/defended GWB’s TYRANNY and then they talk against Obama’s TYRANNY, when in fact it all goes hand in hand! That is their job, the PROSTITUTES in the media, to keep you all confused with the 2 party…1 party system. You all believe their is one ounce of difference in the 2 parties??? Yes…you say. Ahhh, the production based programming for theater is working just as it was designed to…for you SHEEPLE!

        • El Pollo de Oro

          Ricky Ross; Very insightful post. Rush “Pillhead” Limbaugh (the OxyContin king), Bill-O The Clown and other neocons are propagandists for the Repuli-Con wing of the War Party, while MSNBC (also known as ONN, the Obama News Network) are propagandists for the Democrap wing of the War Party. But the American sheeple, to a large degree, are gullible tribalists. So they could care less how much “our guy” rapes and pillages as long as it is “our guy.” Faux News and MSNBC serve different wings of the War Party, but both serve the War Party.

          “Barack Obama is so dangerous because he makes people that are traditionally anti-torture, anti-war, anti-police state just say, ‘Hey, I want NDAA. I want troops on the street. I want TSA sticking their hands down our pants. I want banker bailouts because it’s Obama.’ And strong conservatives went to sleep under Bush because hey, he’s a Republican.”—Alex Jones

          “All the two parties are fighting for is who gets to
          be the whore, the prostitute for the interest groups.”—Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

          “I will not vote for the lesser of two evils. I will not support this criminality any
          longer. I will not vote for the Gambinos or the Bonannos. I will not vote for the Republicans or the Democrats. To me, it’s a two-bit freak show.”—Gerald Celente

          • Lennie Pike

            I agree. There will be outrage from Fox News, “conservative” radio, and the Republican Party – all a kabooki show for people who do not think for themselves. Control the fiat money scam and “they” control everything and everyone – almost
            but unfortunately for them, not quite enough.

          • Louise in MO

            Your English language skills are terrible. Can you not make a comment in which you use decent grammar?

            Additionally, what value is there in denigrating everything and everyone. Your circle of friends must be very small, because it appears you don’t like ANYONE.

    • markthetruth

      disgrace – gossip – shame – slander

      The Truth is in the Tabloids these Days !!!

      the end…

    • Marcelo

      These so-called scandals have yet to place any criminality in the hands of the White House, unlike Watergate.

    • jaxon64

      I honestly believe that Obama could be found–concrete and irrefutable evidence–to have ordered guns given to Mexican drug cartels, or given weapons to Al Quaeda in Libya which were used to kill Americans and destroy our embassy, or even joked about his use of the IRS to bully his political opponents–there could be evidence that he had his hand directly in all of these things and he would still be untouched……
      OH, WAIT!!!….He actually was complicit in all of these events and the public and media responds with a yawn.
      He could probably get caught like Marion Barry of DC with a crack pipe and hooker on tape and would still have tens of millions fawning at his feet………
      Obama (like Oprah) is a cult………

      • Louise in MO

        I agree 100%. Never thought of it, but, yes, Obama is a cult.

        It takes discernment to know when you are being lied to, and many Americans do not have any discernment at all.

        You cannot shop for groceries and say the economy is improving. Nor can you buy gasoline and say ditto. If you think ithe economy is grpwmg because of who you are listening to, better change the channel!

    • Hes a figurehead to a corrupt system though. We shouldn’t expect the system to expose itself and we shouldn’t look to them for answers period. They answer to us and these psychopaths who think we are just cattle have another thing coming. Pride cometh before a fall.


        He’s a CIA puppet. He’s not a mastermind or ringleader. He’s a bit player and he did his job by keeping Wall Street safe for eight years.

    • 1JudgeNotLestYeBeJudged1

      hahaha tooo funny. Ever think there aren’t scandals to cover? He’s the best President we’ve had in decades! He has more honor and integrity than any crazy rehtugligan or Teabagger. He’s beyond reproach when compared to the Crooks, Liars & Thieves now controlling Congress (elected only by gerrymandering, and voter repression…btw).


        He’s a gay conman and scammer of below average intelligence

  • Aaron

    who owns the six major companies?

    • The IMF controls the media, Rupert Murdoch : News Corp: has to put his money in the bank. The IMF controls JP Morgan Case .

      • Graham

        The IMF, World Bank and UN were setup for a specific purpose.

        There biggest obstacle to their “end game” has been too many people “waking up” and taking action.

        The numbers doing the latter need to increase dramatically. Many have put their lives in jeopardy for doing so. The “elite” will stop at nothing to achieve their final objective.

    • JAH666

      Web-search them. Those six media giants are themselves part of a world-wide, intertwined group of ultra-powerful corporations that are, in turn, controlled by a number of mega-corporations and private investment banks under the most powerful families on Earth. This has been in-place and growing in power for a LONG time. I used to think this was the stuff of conspiracy nuts, but those ultra-powerful people don’t even try to keep it a secret anymore.

    • Joe Shmo

      I agree. In another article I wrote about this. I blame the feminist movement. They took the most important role in society and vilified it. Then, they convinced the women that they MUST join the slave/work force to be considered successful. Pitiful, but it worked just like it was supposed to. And now look at us.

      • Graham

        Feminism also substantially increased the tax revenue that the IRS could collect. They referred to it as the other 50%.

        In a planned double whammy (see Rockefeller history), it also led to the breakup of the traditional family unit where kids were simply passed to the “State” for education. The parents got bizzy elsewhere.

        Other things have been strongly promoted since and it is being pushed everywhere left, right and centre. The aim is moral and societal destruction at every conceivable level.

        I will refrain from naming the specific group who are responsible for such outrageous mayhem. They create war as well.

        They also electronically create money in a similar fashion to yanking a rabbit out of a hat then charging the public for the pet food to keep all the rabbits alive.

        Those in their 40’s/50’s/60’s plus must be going through a daily mind warp trying to figure it all out.

        • Louise in MO

          You are so right! I don’t like what I see all around me and I certaily don’t like the vulgar language that you hear. Especially disgusting from the young.

            I was more or less just raised by my mother. She is a smart woman, and taught me about work, loyalty, and respect. My siblings are not as good though. Do you want to know why? They had my father in the house. Until I was three I just had my mother and she was loving and good. My siblings had my father. Thank god I never have to see his ugly mug again.

          • Keywee

            Your mother clearly taught you tolerance, too. She did a great job as you demonstrate wisdom well beyond your years.

          • Ayn Rand

            Thank you Keywee.

          • Keywee

            Credit where credit is due. If even half the adults in the world had your understanding of the forces at work around them, we would be well on the way to solving many of our problems.

        • Louise in MO

          Good comment. We all know that kids can be cruel, and the children of gay parents will be targets. It may not be fair nor right, but it has gone on forever. The “different” are always a target.

          • Keywee

            Children (humans in general for that matter) are not naturally cruel, it is a learned behaviour to target difference, and they can unlearn it. As long as excuses are made for this behaviour under the guise of “human nature”, it will continue.

        • 1JudgeNotLestYeBeJudged1

          you’re almost too stupid to address. There is MUCH VALID RESEARCH, that these children are well adjusted even over children from traditional families! Here’s another fact that should spin your empty head around. Black children have more admiration and respect for their absentee fathers than do White children have for their fathers after a “traditional” divorce! SMAK!!! All this “trailer park” theorizing is beyond description. That’s what’s DYSFUNCTIONAL in this country now. MORONS spewing nonsense!

      • Keywee

        Children are born with a clean slate, pure, with no ideological hang-ups to dampen their wonder of the world around them. It’s the parents and society that teaches them to be bigoted, and they mimic their parents bigotry because they adore them and want to please them. Personally I think having two loving parents, regardless of gender, is worth a lot more to a child than having one or two dysfunctional ones. But, sigh, homophobia is a great distraction from the real issues at hand, and it works wonders to divide communities.

      • Louise in MO

          sorry darling, if you want discrimination then you come up with the proof

      • TtT Engine

        Pope Francis I states that homosexuals raising children is discrimination against the child. I believe he made his point as gently as possible. The CCC states that homosexual relations are intrinsically disordered. Jesus was raised by Joseph and Mary, not James and Joseph. God knows what He is doing and in His divine creation clearly intended children to be raised by one man and one women, in marriage. The very child is created by man and women from marriage. It is a sacrosanct, a core value to a moral, orderly and civil society. Being kind to someone with a disability does not mean that you ignore the reality of their disability. Blind people do not fly airplanes.There are many ways homosexuals should give glory to God. Raising children is not one of them. There is no bigotry here, only reality and fidelity to God’s plan. Christi Fidelis !

        • Ayn Rand

          God believes in love. Parents who love their children and teach them morals are good parents. Rather than discriminate against homosexuals who LOVE THEIR CHILDREN, maybe we should discriminate against child abusers who rape and beat their children.

    What stuns me the most is this: this week, Obama’s approval rating actually increased to 53%, despite the scandals going on. This just goes to show how apathetic most Americans have become. Even worse, this sends the message that Obama, and the Government as a whole, can pretty much do whatever they want at this point, since the public is unlikely to go after them. If this isn’t a bad sign, I don’t know what is.

        Brainiac was also a continuing character in DC comic books in the 60’s and 70’s. He was a green skinned, super intelligent android that regularly crossed swords with Superman. He had stolen an entire Kryptonian city before the planet was destroyed when it’s sun went nova, and kept it miniaturized in a bottle so that he could study the inhabitants. Superman got wind of this and recovered Kandor after an epic battle with Bainiac.

    The mainstream aka government controlled media is the tool by which we are heading like a speed train to secular totalitarianism and pervasive evil. The government and the media [except for Newscorp/Fox] is the means by which traditional America and our founding Judaio-Christian value system is evaporating. If the true facts of a story cannot be controlled, manipulated to fit the mainstream left wing secular outcome, it is ignored by all of the large media outlets. Remember how the lefty devils in the media ran with the phony rigged up Duke Lacrosse rape case until they could not push the lie any further ? There have been countless examples since 8+15+1969, where the mainstream liars contorted or ignored facts to fit their secular outcome.I used to sit and watch the evening news in the 70’s with my mother. I would ask her why the three networks would cover the same stories. She did not know then, but we all know now. Recently, the murdering infanticide doctors Gosnell and the latest from Texas receive almost no coverage by the secular totalitarian left. Remember the liars on the left saying that legal abortion, aka murder, would prevent back alley abortions. MURDERING LIARS. Look at these death camps run by Planned Parenthood. The blaspemy by OB asking God to bless PP was outragious. Hundreds of thousands of Pro-Lifers assemble peacefully in Washington each year and this receives little to no coverage from the government controlled media. The crushing budget deficits and the national debt receives almost no coverage. Pres. Obama would not have been able to pass a security clearance for most government jobs and is our sitting President for two terms because the government controlled media decided to ignore his school records and much of his past. Mitt Romney, a good virtuous man, was run out of town by the demons on the left. The left wing media knows that Benghazi is 10 times worse than Watergate and will only give it slight coverage. The government controlled company line and outcome is that we will learn from it and we will move forward. The phony Watergate scandal was drilled into our heads for ten years. No Americans died because of Watergate but we fed four Americans to the wolves in Benghazi. American lives are wothless to these globalist totalitarians. Meanwhile, we have wire tapping and spying going on 24/7. When will America wake up ? When will America sober up and realize that this secularsocial experiment which metastasised on 8+15+1969 is a world wrecking failure. Shame on you Judas Catholics for what your have done.

    Since this blog is based on economics, the MSM has been really hammering the idea that “gold is losing value”, but they never say “The ptb are speculating to drive down prices of precious metals”.

    I wonder, though, as to why gold and silver are lowering in prices when there is a huge demand for those 1 ounce and 5 ounce silver coins. Most retailers don’t even have enough silver in stock, and the ones who have the silver are refusing to sell at lower premiums (spot price plus high premium).

    The housing market in America and Canada are going to go into trouble as house prices are rising but employment numbers and income are barely increasing to pre-2008 depression statistics.

    The unemployment rate amongst youth are very high but the government sometimes excludes full time students, students giving up on the job search and students being dependants on government assistance in their unemployment statistics.

There is a growing segment of the US population (and hopefully people in other nations) that are saying NO and becoming “Zero TV Homes”. This trend is growing and it has the Big Media PTB worried. The NAB is making a huge push to figure out ways to get more programming onto the mobile devices that are replacing fixed ‘home entertainment’ systems. The NAB had a big meeting in April and the growing segment of “Zero TV Homes” and ways to ‘deal with them’ was high on their agenda.

      You have discovered one part of a very complex web. Keep researching. Most of the truth is out there in some shape or form.

      To see it clearly, people have to put their own desires, beliefs and agenda’s to the side, even if only temporarily.

      You see many here gradually coming to terms with the likelihood of gross “conspiracy” having taken place. Seek the facts and the rest will “find you”.

      Everything will then start to fit together like a jigsaw. Be warned, it isn’t an easy task. You will find yourself being challenged each step of the way until you learn to think how “they” think.

      At that stage, things start to become blatantly obvious, but never assume anything.

  • There are strange places for far left media to work in the alternative news arena as well. Breitbart online news reported that the DOJ released a memorandum about US Attny, AZ, (Burke) leaked a document to slander Fast and Furious whistle blower Frank Dodson.
    “In addition to Burke’s involvement in leaking the document, emails the IG uncovered show senior officials at the Department of Justice discussed smearing Dodson.”
    “One of those was Tracy Schmaler, the Director of the Department’s Office of Public Affairs, who resigned her position at the DOJ after emails uncovered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request showed that she worked with leftwing advocacy group Media Matters for America to smear whistleblowers and members of Congress and the media who sought to investigate DOJ scandals under Attorney General Eric Holder.”

    Looking into Media Matters, we see they are an online media themselves, claiming to bring truth to counter all of the lies of conservative and mainstream media. It seems to be a website full of hate and vitriol against anyone on the right.

    Even stranger, they are a 501c3 (not a 501c4, like the orgs hamstrung by the IRS). The difference?

    A 501c4 is tax exempt but donors can’t deduct their donations from their taxes.
    A 501c3 is tax exempt plus donors CAN deduct their donations, because they are charities, like the Red Cross, churches, Scouting orgs, etc.

    This means, unlike all of the other online media and 501c4 orgs, Media Matters supporters can deduct their donations just the same as donating to their church, Red Cross or local animal rescue. I have to wonder why the IRS doesn’t look into them.

          @ G.V.:
          From NY Sun, Jan 26, 2006
          It wouldn’t hurt you to do some of your own research, G.V.
          The man who served as the no. 2 official in Saddam Hussein’s air force says Iraq moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the war by loading the weapons into civilian aircraft in which the passenger seats were removed.
          The Iraqi general, Georges Sada, makes the charges in a new book, “Saddam’s Secrets,” released this week. He detailed the transfers in an interview yesterday with The New York Sun.
          “There are weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands,” Mr. Sada said. “I am confident they were taken over.”
          Mr. Sada’s comments come just more than a month after Israel’s top general during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Moshe Yaalon, told the Sun that Saddam “transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria.”

      @ jujubebebe:

      The left originally affirmed the belief that Iraq had WMD’s. The vote to go to war was bi-partisan. Saddam Hussein actually used poison gas on the Iraqui Kurds and the Iranians during the Iraq-Iran war. Saddam’s captured military chief claimed that the chemical weapons went to Syria and the nuclear research materials went to Iran. Funny Iran now has a nuclear program and it’s been verified that Syria has chemical weapons.
      Later on the media changed their story as a political ploy to return control of America to the Democrats.
      Both parties are equally responsible for the mess we are in now, and the media is really beholden to power, or the men behind the curtain. The Democrat-Republican conflict is just street theatre, meant to keep the peasants fighting with each other and remaining oblivious to the real Enemy.

    It’s an awesome time in our culture and history, to have this much transparency on government, wealth, politics and the controlling entities in the world. Those governments which have successfully restricted the freedom of the internet will take back or maintain their control of the population and the corruption which goes hand-in-hand with closed societies will keep these unfortunate countries in the dark ages in terms of freedom and personal autonomy. Peasantry will rear its ugly head in America as it has worldwide if WE, Americans, do not defeat the influence of gov’t and corporate oligarchy over our information flow.

Thomas Jefferson’s warning about a central bank is RIGHT NOW a living, breathing reality.

    Sadly, most people still won’t step back and actually do some critical thinking. They have been well conditioned to believe certain people are above criticism. If you dare criticize, then you are a very, very bad person, actually, the worst kind of person possible.

    no mention of the JEWS that run it all? isn’t that what controlled opposition is? discussing topics while avoiding facts?
    you deserve a bullet in the head…

    What bigotry is that? The restless push for amnesty and open borders? Kook.

    This would read much better if it were less about Obama and more about the powers that really control the media. The POTUS is a figurehead nothing more. Multinational entities and their power brokers are the men behind the curtain. Want to know who controls the media? Find out where the most powerful meet. Those are the true enemies of humanity. This is much bigger than Obama and the left. They are the other side of the same coin. The two party paradigm keeps us chasing our tails. While the whole time they control the flow.

    Most of this is right on but the hour counts have to be grossly overstated. 200 hrs a month leaves little time for school or bathing let alone sleep. Check ur math

  • Tony Hamilton

    thank Goodness the Media is LIBERAL if it was conservative all you’ll hear is how BAD non-Whites are.

    One word:Jews

  • Conor French

    wow for no.6 i only knew some of them and barely cared for any of them

  • Bruce Wyner

    The matrix,does that word not say it all.Being a member of the right has freed my mind to an extent,I find msnbc to be comical and anyone that glues their ears to that station is more than likely to be completely out of touch with reality,and cnn isn’t,t far behind.what I am sure of is that the divide in the U.S now is so wide that hatred between the left and right is rivaling that of the civil war.Jan 1 2012 40.000 laws were set into place,we are a country that’s losing our rights.Hussein Obama has hastened his socialist agenda at a far more advanced pace than any president I can remember in my life.hopefully his method of governing has opened people’s eyes .Their is a war coming and it,s about time

    “I just had a thought!”…Immediately when I grabbed that word, it was grabbed from me, by a communication whether on the internet, I Phone or I Pad. The thought, that we so savored is not ours any more…stored in a mega media bank. Now this isnt a conspiracy theory but rather, the media-Intelligence resources gathering data on each of us…right here and right now! Paranoid? No reason to be unless you think! Thinkers are the most dangerous obstacle to domination by a harvester of “Programming” that is effecting each of us in every way, from what we think, when we think it, how good the product is, to timed obselecence of those old things we use to call thoughts. Now think again! I bet you never thought that thinking could be Enemy #1 to all this programmed media, and the muti billion dollars profit made off of…you…every single hour of every day in the years. Now if we have an economic collapse its because we couldnt think our way out of a brown paper bag. A good soldier is told not to think but follow orders…compliant! Yes. Favored…yes. ‘No think’ is our worst enemy, and non communication sets it in stone!!

    The media aren’t liberals. They’re liberal poseurs.

    Underneath the liberal sheep clothes, you’ve got ardent supporters of every imperial war. They never doubt the corporate narrative for GMOs or vaccines. There’s a total news black out on the Federal Reserve’s giveaway of trillions of dollars to Wall Street. Oh yes, they’re very pro-Democrat, but only approved ‘neo-liberal’ (ie, fake liberal) Democrats like Hillary over Bernie. You may think the media is liberal on race issues, but I’ve noticed time and again that they defend blacks with weak arguments while ignoring strong ones.

    The media pose as liberal because the propagandists who fabricate the mainstream media narrative know that they must co-opt real liberalism from taking root in America. So they create this notion that liberalism is woolly brained and impractical — forgetting that liberals defeated fascism and segregation, stopped the CIA from spying on Americans, ensured that workers benefited from economic growth, saved our cities from the deadly smog that is now choking China’s. Today’s media liberals, on the other hand, dither over ‘trigger words’ and transgender bathroom ‘rights.’ They had eight years to demand the restoration of the Fourth Amendment under Obama, and — not a peep. They just don’t consider the Bill of Rights a priority, do they?

    So no, the media isn’t ‘liberal.’ It’s pseudo-liberal, it’s a parody of liberalism. And until people figure that out, they will continue to lurch ever rightward toward fascism in reaction to the oppression of the elite. And fascism is just what the elite wants.

    “In a previous article about the media, I noted that the average American watches 153 hours of television a month.”

    I watch 1-2 hours at night, MASH and Andy Griffith. I often miss them, so I figure I watch TV 24 hours a month, give or take.

    Wow. I got a lot of catching up to do on my brainwashing – yet I’m told I’m the ‘tin foil hat wearer’?


    They have been shaping our false reality since the CIA coup and takeover in 1963. The reality they have concealed will horrify Americans when they realize that they are as brainwashed as North Koreans.

    Get used to it.

  • Quantum Paradox

    We need a liberty channel or a patriotic one at least. Fox is compromised we need an alternative.

  • abinico

    MSM does get facts wrong all the time, but it is not accidental nor incompetence – it is plain old fashion lying to serve their masters.
