Mass Media Is A Mass Disinformation Tool
Mass media is here to condition you.
I am sure you know it, actually, but journalists aren’t there to tell you what’s going on. They are propaganda puppets. Journalists tell you what are paid to. Everything on mass media is controlled narrative. Everything you read, hear or watch is made with the aim of influencing your decisions, not to inform you. It could be say for the entertainment industry in general. The idea is to condition you to take or not certain actions. It is easy to achieve because almost everybody in the evening watches the news or reads the same newspaper in the morning. Walk between 6 and 7 pm on any street and look at the windows to see that I am right. Most of the people have no idea. They think that what they see is real while in fact it isn’t.
According to a 2009 study by Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, with the exception of CBS every major media outlet in the United States shares at least one board member with at least one drug company. Let me put it in perspective for you, these board members wake up, they go to a meeting at Merck or Pfizer, and then they have their driver take them over to a meeting with NBC to decide what kind of programming that network is going to air. For those board members who aren’t pulling double duty with a media conglomerate and a big drug company, they still understand that they can’t be honest and objective about big pharma because big pharma pays their bills. https://trofire.com/2017/04/11/big-pharma-owns-corporate-media-americans-waking-fighting-back/
I recently examined nearly twenty thousand charitable grants the Gates Foundation had made through the end of June and found more than $250 million going toward journalism. Recipients included news operations like the BBC, NBC, Al Jazeera, ProPublica, National Journal, The Guardian, Univision, Medium, the Financial Times, The Atlantic, the Texas Tribune, Gannett, Washington Monthly, Le Monde, and the Center for Investigative Reporting; charitable organizations affiliated with news outlets, like BBC Media Action and the New York Times’ Neediest Cases Fund; media companies such as Participant, whose documentary Waiting for “Superman” supports Gates’s agenda on charter schools; journalistic organizations such as the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the National Press Foundation, and the International Center for Journalists; and a variety of other groups creating news content or working on journalism, such as the Leo Burnett Company, an ad agency that Gates commissioned to create a “news site” to promote the success of aid groups. In some cases, recipients say they distributed part of the funding as subgrants to other journalistic organizations—which makes it difficult to see the full picture of Gates’s funding into the fourth estate. https://www.cjr.org/criticism/gates-foundation-journalism-funding.php
How do you find a reliable news sources?
Unfortunately there are none.
News source are people on social media, local communities.
Informing people is expensive.
Small independent investigators like me can’t do a lot with donations only. I provide alternative COVID-19 news with my blog. Some people aren’t aware of it, but even just the web hosting costs money. On the other hand, if I am sponsored by a corporation, I may need to follow my sponsor’s narrative.
How do we get independent news then? Read my next post.
