Control of the Media

One of the most important and influential tools to governmental and corporate power is the media. Regrettably media today in just about every country around the world is intensely focused on only one thing, and that's showing the sanctioned and agreed political truth.

The opposite is equally true, without control of the media, no government can ever control or dominate a society.

Watching TV and reading mainstream news has become little more than an insult to human intelligence and something that we discourage people from.

When news get caught doing the naughty and are obviously being unethical and presenting "news" as to fit the current politic agenda, it might be a little funny as in this video where Conan O'Brian owns it. But we also need to ask ourselves the question: How much news have we really been watching that were little more than rehearsed acting?
