Only 6 corporations own the Media in our country..
 
What are your thoughts on this America? How does it feel that you are being fed propaganda? There's only 6 corporations who own the media in the United States and this number is down from 50 in 1983.. To put in comparison France under Napolean only had 4 different news outlets..

BTW, I posted this as in the other thread people were bashing on Fox News and yes it's a shitty ass channel CNN isn't any better as they both share the same purpose- to distract and fool you idiots into think you have a "choice". Notice what they are promoting, that is it.

I don't think the number of media outlets is the problem as much as their connections to the government and the biases that stem from those connections. 4 nonbiased media companies would be fine.

There is a connection there. It's not as blatant as it is with banking or health care, it's a more subtle relationship. The government gives the media access, and in return the media doesn't go all the way with exposing the governments dirtiest deeds.

No matter what mainstream news channel you're watching, you will rarely (if ever) see extensive coverage of things like the NDAA, the insane lawsuits the EPA files against citizens, the murder occurring overseas, etc etc etc. I can't even watch mainstream news anymore, they basically cover the most unimportant actions taken by the government and leave out the interesting stuff. "What suit did Obama wear to the debate? Find out at 11!" Non sense.

The internet is the great equalizer in this situation. With sites like reddit, millions of blogs, access to other news outlets like BBC, etc. you can get a huge variety of opinions.

Also most big stories are broken on twitter long before the mainstream media picks them up.

Yea but for some reason nothing is credible unless it's reported by CNN.


And when the mainstream media does report something it's not suppose to...
It's forgotten.

And when somebody goes out of his way to tell you something is Bull$hit...

It's dismissed.

He's just trying to make money or sell a book.
