It’s not so much information control that’s apparent, but rather "Agenda Setting". There are always so many things to talk about in this world,
and only so much time to talk about them. Ignorance is the most powerful form of desception, and a lack of attention can sometimes one of the best
forms of PR.
Not talking about one bad thing, whilst talking about another, is the usual way to protect the shareholders other investment interests, or rig the
political process for wider aims.
Signs we are definitely not free
A truly free competitive media would have…
1. Made a blockbuster movie about how 9/11 was a false flag attack. For most commercial products, (but especially film where there is much about) all
bad publicity is good publicity. The film would have made hundreds of millions both in US and Arab world.
2. At least one mainstream paper would have informed us about how Russia was not aggressor in the 2008 Georgian-Ossetia conflict. And how nearly all
Ossetians would rather be Russian than Georgian as the Georgians are highly hostile-racist towards them.
3. The Iraq war, and no wmds ect
Usually, the only time the media uses the best of journalistic skill-talent its to interrogate-slander those least capable of defending themselves.
I.e. low-level criminals, celebrities, and other non-issues.
When powerful interests aren’t protected it’s usually because it serves our own prominent interests (e.g. poisonous Chinese toys) or simply
can’t be (e.g. BP oil disaster, although the mainstream media did a “excellent” job of keeping the public badly informed about the scale, for at
least the first two weeks). I.E. instead of making money by lawfully talking up the leakage, they sucked up to government-bp interests by
always accepting their ridiculously low estimates.
