Reuters Will Kill a Story If a Hedge Fund Manager Asks Nicely

Reporter Matthew Goldstein had been looking into allegations, raised most recently in a lawsuit filed by Cohen's ex-wife, that Cohen engaged in insider trading in the 1980s.

This is just an example of how the main stream media can operate. What could potentially be a good story gets killed because of the powers that be ask for it to be so. It can go way beyond a little bit of insider trading. If a country can control the majority of the press it get it can shape public opinion of itself world wide. To an extent that has been done.

Thanks for the info,

Your exactly right of course but it doesn't just stop with news outlets. Take for example web sites in general, if the advertising mogules pay a large sum to the site owners they can shape all kinds of web sites by removing or adding what the want in order to appease the funders.

MONEY - GREED - POWER = these 3 things make up the majority of what this world

¡Que lastima!

Thanks for posting. I however think it is a little harder to shape the net. Mostly because any joe can post things somewhere on the net. You can break that down to news sites, discussion, or blogs. Some sites can be controlled but not all of them. That is part of what I like about this site is you post the link to wherever you found the information.

Don't be fooled MONEY POWER and GREED can change many things, what many believe is free thinking and sharing can sometimes if not all be an illusion. There is always an agenda when it incorporates any of the above.

I point your attention to Facebook as an example to how a site can be shaped for other purposes
