Truth. America media is cheap propaganda controlled by a few powerful entities and people. They use the media to manipulate public perception, consolidating power and squashing any true dialogue
“The really strange thing about today is that most of the people who leap to capitalism’s defense fastest and most furiously…aren’t capitalists. And they never will be. They can’t be. Just 10% of America owns stocks, and even less owns bonds. Even less — maybe 1%, if that — make enough money from capital to call it their main income. And their incomes are shrinking, at a record pace. So the Rick’s dads of the world have never made enough money from capital income to live off it, and that’s why they’ll never really retire. They don’t send their kids to school with capital gains. They don’t pay for skyrocketing healthcare bills by liquidating trust funds. They’re just average wage-earning schmoes, like the rest of us. And yet despite the fact that they’re not capitalists and never will be, they’re also exactly the ones who defend capitalism most.”

Laura Ingraham is nothing if not consistently a Fox News bigot. She isn’t consistent about her ideas or the things that come out of her mouth; but she is consistent in one thing—she wants to stay on television, making money, no matter what. Ingraham…
6 conglomerates control 90% of the media in America.
2 tech companies control the majority of information flow through society.
How can we possibly think freedom of the press or information can exist in such a system?
I agree with this. Alex Jones is a toxic influence on America, but Big tech banning him is a slippery slope that we shouldn’t go down.
The moral of the story is, a few corporations have way too much control over our every day lives from the food we eat, the music we listen to, to the information we receive. The amount of economic power that these companies hold is unrivaled in human history, from the time of Kings and pharaohs to the robber barrons Rockefeller and Carnegie.
It is time to break these monopolies up and level the playing field
