I don´t know much about US media channels.
Although I know quite a bit about media here. There is no "conspiracy" surronding it and it is not controlled.
The reporters have clear hands to write. Although they are required to have proof behind what they say, as if they deal with some known public
figures, they might be sued if no proof behind what they say. Even alternative science news can not be taken seriously before they are proved. Without
any scientific documents, the theory can not be taken seriously and that would mean losing some of the scientific audience. Even if somebody invented
a perpertum mobile, they would have to wait for proof before publishing anything. Although the news in TV have shown different free energy solutions
and had university professors investigate them.
I know several people working in the biggest local news portal or some reporters in newspapers . They have no restrictions, except the need to have
proof behind them. If even a witness would come up and say opposite to the official documents, they would be heard. Although simply suggesting false
flag or government cover-up would mean 1) a huge scandal. 2) If otherwise is proven the newspaper will be bankrupted by the lawsuits. Overally better
newspapers try to be as objective as possible, so suggesting solutions is normal, although suggesting a problem, which might not exist, is not
With certain topics there is no other way to find proof than investigating yourself and in some cases it can be very dangerous, so many reporters
Also anybody is allowed to make an article to earn some money. There is a corner for it. There have been 9/11 cover-up topics, global warming hoax,
freemasons conspiracy topics, many local conspiracy topics. And these lots of views as it is the largest news local news portal.
To be honest, even the national media has shown different conspiracy movies, All 3 Zeitgeist movies have been shown, also about the Banking crash etc.
All the gore pictures used and victims shown is not about propaganda, it is about money. Emotions sell, whether positive or negative. The more
emotional topics, the more viewers it gets. Same is with words taken out context. It sells.
