Excellent post. I suggest that you have a look at General Electric. Their list of television holdings is an eye-opener.

In 2004, Bagdikian’s revised and expanded book, The New Media Monopoly, shows that only 5 huge corporations —
Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch’s News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, and Viacom (formerly CBS)
— now control most of the media industry in the U.S. General Electric’s NBC is a close sixth.

This should be disturbing to people.

Max-I would star and flag you a thousand times if I could.

I have been screaming about this since my first days here, and it usually falls on deaf ears.

Nearly all media information is being filtered and controlled by a select Elite with highly vested interests, and they do not have YOUR interests at heart.

I encourage everyone to disconnect from their TV's as much as possible and try to look for alternative means to obtain information about what is really going on in this programmed 'reality'.

It is disturbing. GE is very disturbing. After all, this is the same company that gained a monopoly over the entire power generation and distribution industries in the newly-created Soviet Union during the 1920' and 1930's, the company whose CEO, Gerard Swope, wrote most of the FDR's New Deal, and while they were busy promoting Socialism at home and abroad, they were contributing to a slush fund to elect Communism's arch-enemy, Adolf Hitler, to power in Germany.

Think I'm making this last bit up? I invite you to check the facts. In particular, have a look at the documents from the Nuremberg Military Tribunals, specifically, the so-called "Farben Case." There you will find a transfer slip dated March 2, 1933 in the amount of 60,000 Reichmarks from Allgemeine Elektrizitaets-Gesellschaft (AEG) to the Nationale Treuhand fund. Nationale Treuhand was a slush fund administered by Dr. Hjalmar Schacht. According to other documents, Schacht would then transfer the funds to Rudolf Hess, who used them as campaign funds for the election of Adolf Hitler.

So, why do we care about AEG? I'm glad you asked. At the time, AEG was about 80% owned by International General Electric. Well, okay, but were there any Americans on the board of directors of AEG? I'm so glad you asked. Yes, three that I am aware of:

Gerard Swope - Chairman of International General Electric, President of General Electric, Director of National City Bank, known today as Citibank, Director of Osram, another German company contributing heavily to the Hitler campaign.

Owen Young - Chairman of General Electric, Deputy Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, coauthor of the Dawes Plan and the Young Plan, by which German industries were heavily mortgaged since Germany found itself unable to pay war reparations imposed by the Versailles Treaty.

Clark Minor - President and Director of International General Electric, as well as GE's counterparts (and holdings) in Italy and Japan.

Kind of off-topic, I realize, but people need to realize that GE has a long history of nefarious activities and agendas.

Good Work Maxmars.
I've known this for quite some time though the DOJokers who are NOT elected by the people but.....rather.....are strategically 'placed' in these positions are there to ensure that clear violations of ANTITRUST LAWS are not enforced for No 'Good' Reason.

A Revolution is Long overdue though apparently the sheeplefolk have been branded without their knowledge. This should be quite obvious by now.

The SEC doesn't enforce antitrust laws neither as well as so many other federal 'agencies' of foreign concern.

It should be clear the people have No voice and haven't since 1775.
Band together folks and Make it Happen or remain slaves/subjects.....or Worse.....
You have Always had a choice and your numbers outweigh your opposition 99.9 to .01.

Hmmm, makes one wonder.
No?

PT (post thought)
As per the DOJoker link above, does anyone wonder why Heath Ledger of which was.....and 'Is' a fantastic, genuine human 'Being' was cast for the role of the Joker? It doesn't 'fit' does it? No, it doesn't. Neither did his 'death'. He seemed to have 'passed away' the same way Michael Jackson and so many others did. No? I understand they became to be seen as a liability to those whom had 'much' to hide. No?

Personally, I preferred Heath's role in 10 Things I hate about you..... That role, embodied Heath as he 'Was'. Morgan Freeman could attest to this. Good job in Belize contesting the likes of BP recently, Morgan. You too Ted.....and Brad.



What happened to Nicholas Cage -$- (bust) after appearing in the movie Knowing?
I could 'relate' to that one.
"The Whisperer". Gooooosebumps!
Was Not the BP oil spill predicted there as well? Of course.....

CNN is reminding those of Katrina when they 'should' be focusing on BP.
No?

Again, if it doesn't Make Sense, it wasn't 'designed' to.....for No 'Good' Reason.

Yes, you All should be outraged.
Next.....

Robin.....you can say 'that' again.....

The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” - Malcome X

All media exist to invest our lives with artificial perceptions and arbitrary values” - Marshall McLuhan

The above two quotes say it all.

Yes a real conspiracy, the "news" the very life blood of information we are "pumped" is owned by a very few of the richest, most elite people on earth, and in my opinion, not necessarily of this earth.

Watch "They Live", possibly closer to reality than most realize.

(Love your avatar, Kolchak, The Night Stalker was one of my favorite shows........yes I'm that old and remember it well.

NOT A SINGLE NEWS ITEM will reach the public without our control, states the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

Even now this is attained by us inasmuch as all news items are received by a few agencies whose offices are entirely ours and will give publicity only to what we dictate to them, the Protocols continue.

In other words, the mass media form for us our image of the world and then tell us what to think about that image. According to the Protocols, the way in which the news is covered which items are emphasized and which are played down — serve the interests of the media-masters, the Jews, and not the interests of the Goyim.

Today, the Protocols are being practiced by an elite group of Jews who own America’s mass media. If you hear of major corporations listed as owners of the major television networks with Gentile sounding names such as General Electric” or Westinghouse, it is part of Jewry’s ploy to place a blindfold over the eyes of the Goyim.

An open and shut case can be made that the media in 2010 is NOT Corporate-owned, as so many fearful political analysts put it, but rather, Jew-owned. This author does not fear the Jews and needs no pleasing euphemisms agreeable to Jewish ears.

So long as the Jews control America’s media they will control our politicians and the policies they make. We will not be able to shut down the welfare system, control our borders, or restore Christian values to our society so long as the Jewish media-masters make Americans feel “intolerant” for wanting to do these things.

So long as the Jews funnel the information flow they will be able to keep Americans confused and divided so that we cannot regain command of our government by democratic means. For in a “democracy, government control is offered to the highest bidder, that is, Jews with their billions of dollars. And the issues that the American cattle vote on are those that the Jewish propagandists define so as to serve Jewish interests only.

IN A DEAL THAT GAVE COMCAST TOTAL CONTROL OF NBC on December 3, 2009, the cable company took 51% controlling ownership of the television media giant.

Partner to the deal, General Electric, managed to keep a subservient 49% holding.

In Comcast’s press release of the takeover, the cable giant announced that Jeff Zucker, a Jew, was appointed the CEO of NBC Universal, of which, Comcast is now in charge. View Entire Story Here, Here & Here.

The owner of Comcast is the Jew, Brian Roberts, whose supporting staff includes a host of Jewish media functionaries. The Executives of NBC Universal, now a division of Comcast, is also, like its parent company, predominated by a cadre of Jews.

Roberts himself has acquired eminent “Jewish credentials” — being a graduate of the Jewish-intensive Wharton School of Business — and a winner of silver medals as a squash player at the 1981 and 1985 Maccabiah Games in Israel.

Adding to his Jewish HIGH profile, Roberts serves as Chairman of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association and as a board member of The Bank of New York.

No wonder, then, that Roberts holds awards from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the United Jewish Appeal of New York, and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. Perhaps this is why the Jewish Judge, David Tatel, ruled that Comcast has the right to censor downloads in the recent net neutrality case.

Normally I by pass any and all articles, that bash any group - I don't think anyone group of humans are superior to another, so, even though being a David Icke fan, I by passed the below video for a long time, refusing to watch it because of it's title.

That is until this thread.

Our media is our lifeblood, it is where most people go to get their news and entertainment, it shapes our views, our lives and the way many of us think and feel.

Who owns it?

Yes, this is a major conspiracy, this isn't happening by chance.


Google Video Link


It's part of the mass mind conditioning that is being perpetrated upon the people of the world today and it affects all of us on a grand scale.

Very interesting, well thought out and good thread.

Starred, flagged and commended.


As usual DimensionalDetecive knows the score, "Nearly all media information is being filtered and controlled by a select Elite with highly vested interests, and they do not have YOUR interests at heart.

I encourage everyone to disconnect from their TV's as much as possible and try to look for alternative means to obtain information about what is really going on in this programmed 'reality'."

TV and the vast media has become a lala land of sorts - it's sinister purpose is to deaden your mind, make you a zombie, another pod person.

Again, and most everyone will laugh at me and call me insane, I'm a pretty rational, reality based person - I truely believe the puppet masters, the real power behind "the power" are not of human descent.

Murdoch owns the Wall Street journal and much more - including China and is the single largest TV owner in the UK outside the government - no mention.

Further I think you are missing WHO OWNS THESE COMPANIES - General Electric and Westinghouse used to own several of these -

The vast majority of US media companies are owned by only four parent groups - these are significantly harder to find out.

What is of vaaastly more significance that all of this is the actual ratio of media ownership concentration over time. In other words where there were over 100,000 independent media outlets 20 years ago - there are now less than 10.

This is the startling statistic - and is a global phenomenon.

ADDING -

What should also be of significance is the ownership and control of US / UK based media which broadcast into foreign countries specifically for propaganda - if we are going to be remotely honest about things.

Al Jazeera brings up squirms of derision from many as a foreign based out let perceived pure bias - yet when our own government openly admits to broadcasting propaganda it is utterly acceptable as it is directed at foreigners - no wonder we do not register propaganda directed at ourselves - we trust ourselves implicitly........

The US contracted one such television company to broadcast into Iraq at the onset of the second war - and paid them millions for it - they broadcast repeats of Liverpool soccer matches - win win for everyone except the military and the US taxpayer.

And did you know that 96% of the worlds Media is owned by
Tada....Jews. And about 6-7 Jewish Americans control what you see
and hear in the USofA.

In fact, only 3 out of the First top Ten are Not, not that there is anything
wrong with, no not at all.

So is it any surprise that America hardly hears anything bad about
Israel, it's always somebody else.

Well I guess this is relevant to this discussion, never really garnered much attention, never really knew why either...

Anyway I would like to bring attention this video about Rupert's grand scheme to take over the internet:

www.abc.net.au...

He sounds like a bitter, greedy old man who is stuck in the dark ages.

I don't think we have anything to worry about from this guy, his power is waning daily and his plan to make people pay for online content will fail miserably.

For a more comprehensive look at what he plans to do watch this video:

www.abc.net.au...

Media Watch is fantastic, i love it and can't get enough. I am sad to say i missed these episodes but also sad to see the content from the Murdoch family. Anyone say greed!! Obviously not in touch with the public and have seriously fallen behind in the times. I'm sure they make enough money for themselves and shareholders and yet now they want to charge for online and increasingly open content.

LOL i am reluctant enough to pay for porn let alone news!!!

It's a brilliant show for sure!

And this episode puts it all into a disturbing perspective.

Fortunately, I don't see what Murdoch has planned working. At all.
