After reading various posts on the public's general dissatisfaction with the way media handles news, I decided to do some digging to find out who
controls the news we get. The first thing we find are the big 6. Below is a list of the big 6 and just a few of the media outlets they own, a more
comprehensive source can be found here
NBC, CNBC, CNBC, The History Channel, SyFy channel.
The ABC Television Network, ESPN, and others.
Fox and all Fox related stations
CNN and others
NickToons, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Comedy Central
CBS news, showtime and others.
If all this isn't interesting enough, it gets even more interesting when you start looking into who the top shareholders are of each corporation. This
isn't a complete list, at the bottom of this post are links to the stock information for the big six for you to check out and do your own comparisons.
For the sake of time I put the shareholders with the most repeats, those who have stock in multiple companies.
-CBS 440.6 Million
-News Corp 120.8 Million
JP Morgan Chase
-Time Warner 1.1 Billion
-News Corp 47.7 Million
-Disney 1.3 Billion
-General Electric 4.6 Billion
-Disney 1.7 Billion
-Time Warner 921 Million
-CBS 557.9 Million
State ST. Corp.
GE 4.6 Billion
Time Warner 1.3 Billion
Disney 2.4 Billion
Now if you think about it, most of the people who control our news, who fund it, are absolute criminals. I'm going to post more on this after I do
more research but the first hour or two of digging has offered some interesting results, I encourage everyone to look into this and see for
themselves. I'm interested to know more about Blackrock, since they have share in a large amount of these companies. But this is it for now, I'll
post more information after I do some more research on everything, it's looks like it could get quite hairy.
