It is worth repeating again and again that the bulk of America’s mainline media is
owned and controlled by a mere 6 corporations. This, of course, means
that unless you’re already consciously avoiding these mainline media
sources, then most of the news and entertainment that makes it onto your
screen and into your mind comes from a small pool of corporate sources,
all of which play important roles in delivering propaganda, social
programming and perpetual crisis narratives to the public.
The conglomerates are: General Electric, News Corp., Disney, Viacom, Time Warner and CBS.
All are corporations that have their own shady histories, dealings
and suspicious actors. Disney being widely regarded as an occult
enterprise aimed at warping the minds of children with disturbing subliminal imagery. One
of these companies is also the 12th largest US military defense
contractor, so it’s no surprise that so much of our entertainment
centers around the glorification of war and violence.
By surveying what is available for consumption in the mass media, it
is easy to see what type of society these 6 corporations are helping to
construct. They have the power to warp reality by calling staged shows
‘reality’ shows. Ideas which don’t support mainstream narratives and the
consumer agenda are omitted, and stories about independent people
over-coming strife without dependence on government are seldom if ever
The promotion of shallow, materialistic, ego-centric values, and the
obvious dumbing down of the American population is coming from these 6
corporations. Think about that. These are the companies that glorify
ignorance, the hyper-sexualization of youth, the glorification of war
and government surveillance, and so on. The advertisers that support
these media companies have tremendous sway over what makes it on the
airwaves. They help to control public perception.
The bottom line is that corporate media is a behemoth of special
interests and mind controllers. So much of the human story is omitted in
this capitalistic, for-profit environment scheme like this, which is
why now more than ever the independent, alternative media is such a gem for human kind.
The info-graphic below was produced in 2011 by FrugalDad.com,
and although there have been some changes to the information since
then, the landscape of American media is well represented here. Compare
today to 1983 when the industry was occupied by some 50 independent
Some changes to the graphic noted by Business Insider:
NOTE: This infographic is from last year and is missing some key transactions. GE does not own NBC (or Comcast or any media) anymore. So that 6th company is now Comcast. And Time Warner doesn’t own AOL, so Huffington Post isn’t affiliated with them.
With such tremendous global reach in all forms of media
communication, these corporations help to shape our world by providing
coverage of our lives, analyses of our world, entertainment to pass our
time and inspire our minds, and even distraction and occupation for our
