There are three types of Lies:
Lies, Damn Lies and then Statistic!
Every and I mean EVERY news outlet will skew statistic to suit their bosses agenda.
What is their agenda you ask?
To keep us, aka the sheep, fighting between ourselves long enough so that the real powers can continue to do what every they want to. It called to
Left Right Para-dime.
What is that?
Left Right Para-dime, the phrase refers to a political theory that members of opposing major political parties such as the Republican and Democratic
parties in the United States share common interests and goals, as well as a covertly unified ruling authority over the political issues of the masses.
The two major political entities act in concert to create divisiveness among the population while keeping control of the political spectrum.
Who runs the Media?
6 Major companies do!
Wonder if any were exempt from paying corporation taxes? Why yes they were!
Here they are:
General Electric is a true behemoth: the conglomerate is the world’s third largest company with market capitalization of nearly $370 billion and
annual revenue of $173 billion (2007). The company produces practically everything – from aircraft engine to locomotives to medical devices.
GE’s media holding includes television networks NBC and Telemundo, 27 television stations in the United States and many cable TV networks,
including the History Channel, A&E, and Sci Fi Channel. It also owns the popular web-based TV website Hulu.
Time Warner is the world’s largest media and entertainment company – it owns major operations in film, TV, print, Internet, and
telecommunications. Time Warner has an annual revenue of $50.5 billion (2008) – the equivalent of the entire GDP of Luxembourg.
Like cartoons? Time Warner’s got you covered with Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. Classic movies? Check (Turner Classic Movies). And who can
forget CNN and Headline News? Both are Time Warner properties.
Note: CW is co-owned by Time Warner and CBS.
The Walt Disney Company
You may associate it with amusement parks, but The Walt Disney Company has grown to be one of the world’s largest media and entertainment
corporation since its founding as an animation studio by brothers Walt and Roy Disney in 1923.
The Walt Disney Company owns the ABC television network, with more 200 affiliated stations reaching nearly 100% of all U.S. television market, as
well as dozens of niche cable networks. True to its cartoon animation origin, Disney captures its viewers early – it counts millions of young
children as its audience with kids channels like the Disney Channel.
Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation is a behemoth: it is the largest media company in the world by market capitalization ($38 billion). For most
people, the conservative news channel Fox comes foremost to mind when asked what they think of Murdoch’s media empire – but the company’s
holding is far larger: it includes Asia’s Star TV Network, the National Geographic Channel and even the iconic TV Guide network.
Don’t watch TV? Even if you prefer to browse the Internet, most likely you’ve visited News Corp’s property, which include Hulu (owned in
partnership with GE through its subsidiary NBC Universal) and the social networking giant MySpace.
CBS (which used to stand for the Columbia Broadcasting System) is not sometimes called the Tiffany Network for nothing: the company is known for
its high programming quality. It is currently the most watched television network in the United States, and reached more than 103 million homes in the
Both CBS and Viacom (see below) are owned by multi-billionaire Sumner “content is king” Redstone, through his holding company, National
Viacom stands for “Video and Audio Communication” – and true to that name, the company owns a large number of cable and satellite television
networks (the company was split from CBS Corporation in 2005, though both have the same majority owner).
In 2007, Viacom filed a $1 billion lawsuit against Google and YouTube for copyright infringement and recently a federal judge granted Viacom’s
request for data of all YouTube users. The blogosphere has since called for a boycott of all Viacom properties – so that means no MTV, VH1,
Nickelodeon or – gasp – Comedy Central for you!
This post, as good intention as you think it is, is nothing more than feeding into the left-right para-dime.
