You Know Mainstream Media is Controlled, Yet these Facts Should Still Shock You
The chances that anyone reading this article already hates or does not trust mainstream media is close to 100%. Whether you simply like alternative news or you’re a full-blown conspiracy theorist, you’re probably very aware that the mind-numbing and opinion-manipulating rhetoric on pretty much every media outlet is influenced at the least (controlled at the worst) by some form of governing body.
Even armed with this knowledge, there’s a good chance that the depth of the rabbit hole is still enough to blow your mind.
In the infographic below by Frugal Dad is old. In case you were wondering (and you probably weren’t) it’s actually gotten worse since this was published in 2011. It’s ironic that today, the website that produced this is now owned by an online education company. Go figure.
It really doesn’t matter where you believe the influence is sourced. Is it simply greed that drives the control of the vast majority of American media by a select few mega-companies? That’s the prevailing theory, but it’s not correct. Money is a minor part of the equation. Guiding our opinions and pointing our focus in the directions they want is the real play, here, whether you believe it’s Rupert Murdock at the top or if you believe he and his cronies are pawns in a much larger and more dangerous chess match.
I’m not going to try to convince you that there’s a conspiracy at play, here. I’m only going to point to the data and hope that you come to the only conclusion possible – mainstream media cannot and will not give you any information that they specifically want you to have. There is clearly an agenda at play. They are herding the sheep to slaughter and this is one of their most powerful herding tools.
