The trouble with the media in this country is it is controlled and told what to report. The press and the pop culture are tied inextricably to the wants and wishes of government. The partnership is just too close. The skepticism of raw government power is too weak. Big corporations that run the media know all too well where their bread is buttered – in the form of licenses and political favors. They have forgotten what the principal role of a free press in a free society is – to serve as a watchdog on government.

President Obama's presidential campaign focused on "making" the news media cover certain issues while rarely communicating anything to the press unless it was "controlled," White House Communications Director Anita Dunn disclosed to the Dominican government at a videotaped conference.

"Very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control"





The news and entertainment we consume, and thus our thoughts and opinions, are shaped not just by the media and entertainment corporations but by governments, their agencies and the military-industrial complex. To brainwash the masses requires that the owners of the system create an assembly line structure of content to transmit to the masses via the locally owned television stations so that culture can be homogenized just as in Orwell's 1984.

I get the greatest news everyday delivered right to my computer. ATS is a great site for news but you sometimes have to pick out the bias to help form your own opinion. MSM is crap.
