its not about 'corporations', its about bias and ideologism in the media.
Using the 1992 presidential election as his springboard, documentary filmmaker Brian Springer captures the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters in the early 1990s. Pat Robertson banters about "homos," Al Gore learns how to avoid abortion questions, George Bush talks to Larry King about halcyon -- all presuming they're off camera. Composed of 100% unauthorized satellite footage, Spin is a surreal expose of media-constructed reality.

Some, like Amazon, for instance, hold more wealth and have annual earnings that exceed the GDP of entire countries. They use this power accordingly and often directly. Like when they buy the Washington Post, for example.
God knows what sociopathic agendas are in play but suppose the last thing they want is everyone knowing about it - maybe that's why there's now a concerted push by 'authorities' to criminalise conspiratorial opinion.
"Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives.
Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him."
Robert A Heinlein - If This Goes On, 1940
