On Face the Nation this Sunday morning, the Host when remarking about how foreign affairs play into Presidential Elections, first showed a shot of Nixon and talked about the ending of the War in Vietnam; THEY NEVER SHOWED THE LBJ/E. Dirksen Phone Com about TREASON CLIP. Then they talked about the Carter Reagan dealings with the Hostage Situation; I got the impression that Carter was wrong and Reagan's under the table deal was the right thing to have done. Then they gave a shot of Bush One saying that they did it right and that they should not bend to terrorists. And finally, a shot of Bush 2 remarking about the 911 incident and they NEVER MENTIONED THE LATEST WALL STREET OPED.

AND FOX CALLS THEM THE LAME STREAM MEDIA. HA!!!

5 corporations control the majority of US media. (newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, books, music, movies, video's, wire services and photo agencies.)

The Corporate Muzzle
Trolls of Fascism
So here we have yet another example -- perhaps the most glaring yet -- of the corporations that own our largest media outlets controlling and censoring the content of their news organizations based on the unrelated interests of the parent corporation.

Ideas are more powerful than guns.
We would not let our enemies have guns,
why should we let them have ideas.
- Joseph Stalin

"Not only are we here to protect the public
from vicious criminals in the street
but also to protect the public from harmful ideas."
- Robert Ingersoll, first director of the DEA

"Another weapon I discovered early
was the power of the printed word to sway souls to me.
The newspaper was soon my gun, my flag-
a thing with a soul that could mirror my own."
Adolph Hitler

"Through clever and constant application of propaganda,
people can be made to see paradise as hell,
and also the other way around,
to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise."
Benito Mussolini.

Democracy Now Interview: Thomas Frank
“Fantastic misgovernment of the kind we have seen is not an accident, nor is it the work of a few bad individuals. It is the consequence of triumph by a particular philosophy of government, by a movement that understands the liberal state as a perversion and considers the market the ideal nexus of human society. This movement is friendly to industry not just by force of campaign contributions but by conviction.”

The Myth of "Liberal Bias" in the Media
"A tiny portion of the population controls the lion's share of the wealth and most of the command positions of state, manufacturing, banking, investment, publishing, higher education, philanthropy, and media... these individuals exercise a preponderant influence over what is passed off as public information and democratic discourse.

"When a well-packaged web of lies
has been sold to the masses over generations,
the truth will seem utterly preposterous
and its speaker a raving lunatic."

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
