Does the MSM control public debate?

I thought I'd pose the question here with you. I know many establishment journalists will say that the MSM is there to hold the government to the fire. I know many of you are aware that it's quite the opposite. I watch the MSM so I know what their corporate agenda is. It's quite easy to find out what the statist MSM wants to sell us.

You just have to read between the lines. Then I got thinking... it's not just that they want to sell us the news and the propaganda. It's that they also want to control the public debate too. That's why there aren't that many free thinkers around. It's because the MSM sets the debates and the times of which certain debates are permitted or not. That's just my idea anyhow. Could the MSM be controlling the public debate? I want to know what you think.

To quote Chomsky, in a paraphrased fashion: they don't have to control it, they own it.

Hope that helps.
