Here you are outperforming even yourself in stupidity. Any dude can buy a printing press and compose and distribute some news. And he can write anything. Who cares? His audience are a handful, and insignificant. But Media mogul like Murdoch reaches millions and his power of persuasion is enormous. Sure he is not going to allow his media outlets to criticize NATO, because NATO works for him. NATO is bombing countries into Regime Change, in order to broaden the opportunities for people like Murdoch, to invest and make profits: to acquire new resources, markets, and cheap labour. Sure, such multibillionaire Media mogul will keep on his payroll the journalists, who write in line with his and his group interests. And his journalists will write what is expected from them, to keep the food on the table.<quoted text>
You mean all I have to do is buy a printing press and start printing my own news to have such political power? So any dude can just print something like,“Bomb Iran” or “Invade N. Korea” or maybe even “Nuke China” and sell it on the street corner to start a war? Hey, this works also the other way around! Why don’t you go print your own news like “NATO is a war monger” or “Nuke NATO”?
The State owned media is controlled by the letter of the Law.
Privately owned media is controlled by the need to survive; actually more potent control.
That kind of media is a thing of the past. You are getting really antiquated.You know very well that that is just BS. The media has very often been the bane of politicians in the West. Remember Watergate and what happened to Nixon? That was the media at work. And the end of the Vietnam war was partly brought about because the media reported against it. Atrocities caused by British and US soldiers in Iraq all came to light through the Western media. Western media is nobody’s friend least of all the politicians and you should be happy that it’s like that.
Politicians! These clowns have no power in the Western economic system. The money people decide.
