good question and i believe the answer is yes they are. the media as a whole cnn,abc,mbc,fox, ect., ect., are the reason i dont watch tv anymore. i dont own one and dont every want another one. and the news media is the sole reason i made this choice. i find forums such as ats to be more informative. not only do you get news but you get the real feelings of the public and you get as close to fair representation of both sides as i believe you can.

No, the media is not brainwashing us. They are merely giving us what we want. Honestly, I'd rather hear about Paris Hilton than x number of kids get blown up in Baghdad (again). And, yes, I know how these kneejerk reactions go on ATS, someone's gonna label me a terrible person for saying that, but, I'm sorry, I don't want to be continually reminded about something terrible that I'm powerless to stop.
CFR Stacks The Deck With Both Democrat And Republican Presidential Candidates
ThoughtCriminal.org | August 15, 2007
Editor's Note: 2004 was the year of the Skull & Bones presidential candidates, and now 2008 seems to be the year of the CFR presidential candidates. Democrat or Republican, it matters not which rook they choose to elect. We lose either way. The 2004 elections were marred by the stench of a fixed fight. Bush and Kerry both Yale Bonesmen and related by blood running for the presidency. Now the Council on Foreign Relations has nearly every presidential candidate in their pocket.
