Please keep in mind that the list above is not exhaustive. It only contains a sampling of the companies that those six corporate giants own.
So are you starting to get an idea of how powerful they are?
If you ever wondered why the version of “the news” that you get is so similar no matter where you turn, it is because control of the news is concentrated in just a very few hands.
So who controls the “big six” media corporations?
Would it surprise you to know that the boards of directors of those big media corporations have a tremendous amount of overlap with the boards of directors of large banks, large oil companies and large pharmaceutical companies?
The following is from the Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting website….
Media corporations share members of the board of directors with a variety of other large corporations, including banks, investment companies, oil companies, health care and pharmaceutical companies and technology companies.
You can find a list that shows how these boards of directors overlap and interlock right here.
The giant media corporations are not going to criticize the establishment because they are the establishment.
The messages that these media behemoths pound into our heads are going to be the messages that the establishment wants pounded into our heads.
Anyone that believes that the mainstream media is “independent” and that it does not have “an agenda” is being delusional.
Of course it is also worth mentioning that much of what we get from the mainstream media is also often directly controlled by the federal government.
Not that the federal government and the establishment are opposed to one another. The truth is that they very much work together hand in hand. But sometimes the federal government has slightly different priorities than the corporate establishment does.
In any event, the key point to take away from all this is that the news and entertainment that we all enjoy on a daily basis if very highly censored and very highly controlled.
It is imperative that we understand that those that own and control the media are trying to shape society in a certain way. They want to impose their values and their vision of the future on all the rest of us.
You will notice that none of the major news organizations speak out against the “Big Brother” police state control grid that is going in all around us.
Instead, they insist that all of this added “security” will keep us safe even as our liberties and freedoms are being badly eroded.
You will notice that none of the major news organizations speak out against the population control agenda of the global elite.
Instead, they insist that more “family planning” will help the environment and make the world a more prosperous place for all of us.
Instead, they tell us to keep having faith in the system and they promise us that everything is going to be okay.
Well, you can mindlessly believe the corporate media if you want, but I believe that in this day and age it is absolutely imperative that we all learn to think for ourselves.
Don’t be a mindless robot for anyone.
Think for yourself and make your own decisions.
The truth is out there and you can find it if you are willing to go search for it.
