The Global Media Dictatorship
MEDIA, 30 August 2010
by Manuel E. Yepe – Pravda
No one should believe that the evidence that exposes the young U.S. soldier of twenty-two, Bradley Manning, to make available to the Wikileaks site a vast collection of secret documents on daily brutal actions carried out by U.S. troops in their war against Afghanistan, will have serious significance in the course of the war policy of the United States
The powerful device of silence and lies which the supreme government has to conceal and cover for Washington, applies to this situation. The resources that have escaped any demand for clarification of the falsehoods in the official version of the events of September 11, 2001 in the United States, which served as a pretext to launch the war against terrorism has actually been a war against the “dark corners of the Third World.”
This, to cite only one of many acts of sleight of hand by the media in the history of the American nation.
The American demon covens assembled to justify the initiation of their wars against weaker opponents are well known to history. It is not necessary to go further back than the twentieth century, recalling Korea (North-South conflict), Vietnam (Gulf of Tonkin), Iraq (weapons of mass destruction), Afghanistan (Osama bin Laden and the Taliban) and many others each with a fabricated pretext.
But, how can they control the dissemination of information by the country’s media mecca that claims “freedom of the press?
It turns out not to be so difficult for them. Often, alternative media and others who are not part of the so-called big corporate media, hardly reach the majority of the population unable to gain access – they speak and write about the techniques, skills and resources for control of information that apply in the United States.
It is known that six major conglomerates that make up what is called mainstream media or MSM control 90% of the shares of large media companies that, in turn, produce 90% of what is read, seen and heard by Americans. From the MSM, the American power elite maintains a systematic and effective control of information, not only within the U.S., but globally.
According to a Canadian magazine published by Global Outlook, six conglomerates control information and entertainment in the United States and in much of the world. They are:
DISNEY, owner of ABC, Touchdown Pictures, Buena Vista, Hollywood Pictures, Caravan Pictures, Miramax Films, the production of documentaries A & F, TV History Channel, Discovery, Disney and others;
AOL / Time Warner, which owns CNN, HBO, Warner Brothers, Castle Rock, Time, Sports Illustrated, People, Fortune, Entertainment, Money, Netscape and others;
VIACOM, which includes CBS, Paramount Pictures, Simon & Schuster, Pocket Books, Blockbusters, Showtime, MTV, The Movie Channel & Nickelodeon, BET, Nickelodeon, etc..;
GENERAL ELECTRIC, owner of NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, Bravo, Universal Pictures, thirteen television stations, and closely linked to the arms and aerospace industries;
RUPERT MURDOCH’S NEWS CORPORATION, owner of Fox TV, DirecTV, TV Guide, New York Post, The Weekly Standard, 20th Century Fox, MySpace and others;
Bertelsmann AG, one of the world’s largest media corporations, has the European RTL-TV, Random House, Bantam Dell, Doubleday, Alfred A. Knopf, Vintage Books, and others.
The first five are registered as American and the last one is German.
It would be wrong to presume that these huge consortiums are subordinate to the United States government and therefore abide by the dictates of the White House. The truth is that both Washington and the giants of information, are controlled by the same power elite in the exercise of its world tyranny.
These media conglomerates do not need control on the part of the government, because they themselves are part of the supreme power. In fact, the government alone controls a relatively small number of newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations, movies, videos, labels, etc., Which, together with alternative media only scarcely influences 10% of the population.
The ineptitude with which the superpower has been led by this mysterious supreme government that no one has chosen, but by which the satanic gang manages the fate of the empire beyond its constitutional powers is the dome of the world capitalist system.
Under the leadership of this shadowy elite, their selfish nature shows itself increasingly incompatible with the survival of the human race, America is stuck in an awkward and dangerous position in which the owner of the world seems destined to lose everything for its stubbornness, thus causing something close to apocalypse for mankind.
