Mainstream Media and the Illusion of Choice
Mainstream media in the United States is consolidated to such a point that there are now just 6 mega-corporations controlling 90% of American TV, print and radio media stations. The consumer is fed the illusion of choice, but in reality, there are a small handful of elite individuals now dictating what you see, hear, read and, ultimately, think. This mainstream media consolidation places a stranglehold on information flow in our society, and is threatening our ability to know the truth.
Below are the 6 mainstream media mega-corporations, and the affiliated companies and brands they own.
Keep in mind, it’s just “good business” to cross-promote their other endeavors, even if that damages the integrity of their “news”. As for-profit corporations, this means running pieces which either promote the high level agenda (especially themilitary agenda) of their corporate owners, or censoring stories which would hurt their advertisers and political allies (likeBig Pharma, the biggest contributors to mainstream media advertising, according to former US Senator Robert Kennedy Jr.)
