No idea if this site is credible.
Media is out to get money everywhere no matter what the cost.
This paper seems to be one sided but it is interesting.
First post so be nice!

Sir John Major, formerly the prime minister of Britain, has confirmed on
oath Rupert Murdoch's use of his media influence to manipulate
democratic governments.

Firstly that is common knowledge, his papers, especially the sun heavily backed certain parties during election time.. they backed conservative firstly then swung labours way when tony Blair was up for election.. and major is one of these elite figures, no doubt high up in one of these secret societies so I would take these things with a pinch of salt.. there are more than likely trying to manipulate YOU when these stories come out.

It sounds like it was written with it's own agenda. There's lots of loaded language, and it's curious the way it mentions conspiracy theorists as if it's trying to distance itself from that group:

This will add fuel to conspiracy theories about Zionist control of the
media and politics, as well as controlling the flow of information to the
general public.

Then gives you a tiny bit of truth, but still only ascribing the worry to conspiracy theorists

Conspiracy theorists often express concern that
democracy is subverted and undermined when voting decisions are
based on false or misleading information.

Then it goes on to mention things like this as if they're not a part of some conspiracy theory:

Murdoch, a Jewish billionaire and influential supporter of the
Zionist/pro-Israel agenda

Oh yeah, and this:


Daily Mail, 12 June 2012.

It might be debatable what parts exactly, but this is definitely full of disinformation.

Murdoch follows the political power trends and knows when to support or not to support a party and he can change his affections overnight to suit himself so its why politicians spend so much effort courting him as if he changes his mind thats a hell of a lot of papers

How did I just 'know' this was about John Major before even opening the thread title.

Regarding Media Manipulation.....I thought that was the obvious reason why most of us post here in the first place?

Media manipulation is nothing new. This problem has been ongoing since the advent of Print media. For example, this was hotly contested during the Victorian Era.

Even Hollywood recognised it ages ago - check out Citizen Kane!
