My observation: It is what THEY won't tell you, that is destroying our world!
Depending on who you talk to, the mainstream media is either right or left biased. Well, if you really study what they say and look at who owns them; the media is Big Government biased.
The mass media is owned by corporations. Corporations are in business to sell things and make money for their owners. If it sells product (commercials) they air it. So why do you except the news to be news.
These corporations are: GE, News-Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, and CBS.
GE-> COMCAST, NBC, UNIVERSAL, PICTURES, FOCUS FEATURES
NEWS-CORP -> FOX, WALL STREET JOURNAL, NEW YORK POST
DISNEY -> ABC, ESPN, PIXAR MIRAMAXMARVEL STUDIOS
VIACOM -> MTV, NICKJR, BET, CMT, PARAMOUNT PICTURES
TIME WARNER -> CNN, HBO, TIME WARNER BROS
CBS -> SHOWTIME, SMITHSONIAN, CHANNEL, NFL.COM, JEOPARDY, 60
For the most part, these corporations get there information from these News Wire Services.

Former CBS Reporter Exposes Media Manipulation
It's no secret that 90% of American media is owned by just 6 corporate conglomerates, and it's also no secret that the media is used by political and corporate propagandists as a tool to reach deep into the hearts and minds of the masses. Mainstream newscasts are a staged version of reality, and as world events continue to rise in pitch and fervor, so will the propaganda, so it's imperative to brush up on critical thinking skills as a defense against falling into group-think and mass-hysteria.
The great irony here, though, is that it is precisely through the power of media that people will awaken to the deceit happening in the media. By and large the programming that makes it to our eyes and ears is produced to support an agenda, but, even amongst the corporate programs there are genuine voices of reason and truth.

What is News
News is what is different today. So if there was corruption yesterday, it is not news today? Sadly, it takes a man burned alive now to make the news. Beheadings have become passe.

Terry Gilberg of KFYI on the Media Beast
Looking at civic ignorance and how young adults today believe they are more informed than they actually are. Also, some illustrations from movies that are probably representative of how the dominant media culture attempts to move us to "group think"

In Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky state that commercial news organizations disseminate propaganda on behalf of dominant private interests and the government.
"The U.S. media do not function in the manner of the propaganda system of a totalitarian state," write the authors. Rather, they permit "indeed encourage" spiritual debate, criticism, and dissent, as long as these remain faithfully within the system of presuppositions and principles that constitute an elite consensus, a system so powerful as to be internalized largely without awareness.

How clever is that statement!?
And if you listen, FOX News is not conservative. In the so called fair and balanced discussion or any of the others ..... it is all propaganda. News is not the News if you don't provide context. And there is NO context on TV. Only headlines and what you should think. What do you know about Benghazi. Did you know that the U.S. was running guns there too.
The left has an echo chamber, including but not limited to ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, the NYT and 90%+ of our nation's largest newspapers, virtually ALL of Hollywood to include Comedy Central, HBO and subtle-but-consistent leftward nudging throughout the network entertainment programming we all use as an escape...not to mention every union-run (and failing) public and higher education institution with their America-bashing and agenda-driven "teachers" who care more about molding narratives than they do actually educating on merit....along with the science-denying math manipulators in academia who can, do, and will produce "studies" claiming credence toward whatever the left's issue of the day is...and you have to ask yourself: "Are FNC and AM talk radio - who I don't ever hear yet marginalize every chance I get exclusively on ubiquitous instruction to do so - really the ones brainwashing our nation...or is virtually every other media, entertainment, and education outlet who toe the left's line 24/7 even when I'm not looking for politics the ones I should maybe be a bit more weary/skeptical of?"

LandShark Media - Glenn Beck
And no matter how many times the media try to convince you otherwise, sharks are not misunderstood dolphins. i.e. Communism and Islam really are being implemented in America. Don't be fooled by the landshark media.

Media Subverted by CIA
Recorded June 10, 1987 "Diverse Reports" documentary, Copyright 1985
A documentary is presented in which former CIA employees and other people who have written about the CIA tell of the extent of penetration of the mass media by the CIA and how the media are used by that agency to manipulate public opinion. CIA whistleblowers such as John Stockwell relate how these operations actually were implemented in various covert actions in which they were involved around the world. At the conclusion of the film, we look with John Stockwell at some other specific instances of disinformation and compare these with the general practice of the American government, particularly in the Reagan Administration, to lie, to distort information, and to manipulate the press.
