I am aware of multiple pieces of evidence, mostly from the same era or even before, that clearly implicate certain groups within the government of the
US in the manipulation of the mainstream media for the government's own ends. Basically they use the media, mainly news on television, to manipulate
what the public knows and believes. The only reason that we are not getting the same amount of evidence today is that they have become more proficient
at hiding this fact. It has probably gotten much easier for them to control what is reported than it was in the past, although it could be the other
way around, depending on how you analyze the matter.
People who had a hand in creating the news that we know today, like Rupert Murdoch himself, have admitted the fact that their networks are NOT about
reporting the truth. Rather, they are about convincing people of things that are not true in order to sway public opinion. Think about how easy it
would be to control the news today. First think of the dozens of whistleblowers who have claimed they were fired for attempting to tell the public the
truth. Then consider who decides what gets reported on and what doesn't.
These decisions are made at a higher level within the network itself. There are not all that many people who get to make this decision. So technically
all the government or some organization would have to do is coerce the top dog of the company to come to their side, and that person could then tell
"report this," or "scrap that." There is personal testimony claiming that important pieces of information were deliberately kept off the air, and
out of the citizens' grasp in most instances.
