$5 million??? That's pennies. A uni I did PR for paid $75 mil a year retainer for Webber-Chandwick PR to write/publish an average of 5 - 10 stories a
The US DoD/CENTCOM spent $500m a year censoring press coverage of the Iraq war, making up false stories like the rescue of Private Jessica Lynch and
around $23 Bn embedding journalists and stopping the press having access to where they were committing war crimes like Fallujah. They've used the same
tactics in every war since Vietnam to censor the press and print state propaganda masquerading as news.
Big Pharma spends billions every year paying for adverts for drugs masquerading a news. 95% of the time when the press run a story on a drug, the
story has been paid for by a pharma company and a person claiming to have taken a new drug has either been told what to say or in 60% of cases is an
actor who has taken the drug or had the illness they're claiming to have had.
Every corporation spends hundreds of millions a year in PR. Around 90% of MSM 'news articles' are copy and pasted Press Releases written by PR firms
that have had a five minute 'top and tailing' process where the headline and final paragraph has a couple of minor alterations and words changed to
make it look like a legitimate story.
Big corporations and multi-nationals spend tends of billions per year in 'counter-surveillance' where any journalist looking into their corruption and
dodgy practices is either murdered, beaten up by various mafia or cartel for hires or has their character assassinated by false claims they're either
a paedophile or alcoholic a few months before the story can be printed.
It's not a good thing to have CCP trying to buy postive coverage in the press but in the reality of media and PR the ammount they're spending wouldn't
be enough to publish a single story a year unless it was a couple of 'news in briefs' 50 -75 word stories.
