Censorship Abounds: The Handful of Companies That Control Your Perceptions

Almost all the media channels you watch are controlling your perception of reality – namely to get you to value their commodities (goods and services) instead of yourself and your own morals and values. This affects you at every level, from the food you eat, the friends you are more likely to make, the goods your purchase, and even the careers you choose or education you decide to get. It also affects your self worth as you believe you are only as good as the things you can buy or the ‘hot’ woman you can take out, since sex and money are the primary ways media motivates you. The world has become censored in ways you wouldn’t even imagine in both covert and overt ways. Let’s look at the six major corporations who control every single media station that you probably peruse on a daily basis:

  • Comcast – formerly owned by GE, controls MSNBC, NBC and Telemundo
  • Disney – controls ESPN, the History Channel, A & E and Lifetime
  • Viacom – the parent company of Paramount, BET and MTV
  • CBS – and its dozens of affiliates
  • Newscorp – controls Fox News, New York Post, Wall Street Journal
  • Time Warner – controls CNN, Time, People Magazine and Warner Brothers

Recent egregious, top-down censorship incidents include the following:

  • Monsanto threatened Fox investigative reporters, who wanted to out bovine flu, and stated, “We’ll tell you what the news is.”
  • ABC was going to air a story on 20/20 about how Disney Land was going to hire pedophiles. The story wasn’t aired because ABC is owned by Disney.
  • CNN’s coverage of the deep water horizon oil spill was laughable when just after the coverage aired, there was a commercial for BP Oil, touting the benefits of enjoying wildlife in the Gulf.

These are just a few examples of a rampant and detestable control of your brainwaves, via the air waves. Only 118 people sit on more than 200 media boards that drive most of what you see, hear or look at. So a very small number of people is controlling the media with complete disregard for people and their health and well being.

There are alternative news media outlets that have popped up all over the internet to try to give real facts and not corporate agendas to the people. They include Waking Times, for example, as well as InfoWars, Natural News, Natural Society, DavidIcke’s site, GreenMeInfo, Prevent Disease, Activist Post, and many more.

Some of these sites are heavy on the ‘conspiracy’ theory angle. Others try to offer unbiased news as much as possible, since we all alter ‘information’ based on our own opinions. In the very least, these alternative news sources are not controlled by an elite population of merely 118 people who are essentially running the world through managing our perceptions of it. There is a grand diversity of ideas and interpretations of world events.

If you know of other great alternative news sources that really provide good information and not merely a good brainwashing dosed with a heaping spoonful of propaganda, please list them below.

      Thank you very much. As I come from a family that gets nearly all of its news/information from The Today Show and CNN, I’m always looking for more alternative news sources in order to get as much information as possible. They think that I’m crazy, though.

    There is nothing to practice.
    To know yourself, be yourself.
    To be yourself, stop imagining yourself to be this or that.
    Just be. Let your true nature emerge.
    Don’t disturb your mind with seeking.

  3. Not ONE of the ‘alternative’ news sites you mention is willing to publish the Truth about: 1)the Dead Sea Scrolls (that Jesus was the author of the Thanksgiving Hymns); 2) the Nag Hammadi Codices (that the Gospel of Truth and the Treatise On Resurrection convey the Teaching of Jesus); or, 3) that the Doctrine of “resurrection” was taught by Isaiah, Daniel, Jesus and Mohammed as a Doctrine of ‘Rebirth’.

    And why not?

    In order to preserve the economic interests of *another* corporation: Judaeo-Christianity-Islamism, INC.

  4. Ern says:

    All major media companies are owned and controlled by Zionist Jews.

  5. Ern says:

    Today, seven Jewish Americans run the vast majority of US television networks, the printed press, the Hollywood movie industry, the book publishing industry, and the recording industry. Most of these industries are bundled into huge media conglomerates run by the following seven individuals:

    Gerald Levin, CEO and Director of AOL Time Warner

    Michael Eisner, Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company

    Edgar Bronfman, Sr., Chairman of Seagram Company Ltd

    Edgar Bronfman, Jr, President and CEO of Seagram Company Ltd and head of Universal Studios

    Sumner Redstone, Chairman and CEO of Viacom, Inc

    Dennis Dammerman, Vice Chairman of General Electric

    Peter Chernin, President and Co-COO of News Corporation Limited

    Those seven Jewish men collectively control ABC, NBC, CBS, the Turner Broadcasting System, CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, MCA Records, Geffen Records, DGC Records, GRP Records, Rising Tide Records, Curb/Universal Records, and Interscope Records.

    Most of the larger independent newspapers are owned by Jewish interests as well

    Check out http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/ for straight talk from a former Reagan insider. Also, Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog http://usawatchdog.com/ is always good for information or http://cryptome.org/ which has a long history of leaks.

    Aggregation sites like http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/ are helpful as well.

  7. Morgan says:

    I don’t have a tv or subscribe to any of that garbage. Problem solved!

  8. Ern says:

    I see my comment about Zionist control of the media has been removed. How ironic, considering this article is about control of perception. Way to go guys!

  9. Ern says:

    Now my comments have been reposted. What’s going on here?

  10. Mike says:

    Thank you David ! without your timely comment I would have missed that very interesting information :]

    The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in 1970′s are my student adviser’s words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term “‘goyishe kup,’” meaning that the “Non-Jews are Stupid”
    Later in life I learned that the exact translation of “GOYISHE KUP” means that the “Cattle are STUPID”..
    I remember him recalling whatt his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend’s father’s butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the start of shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to “beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink” so as to sell them to the “GOYISHE KUP” as milk producing cows.
    The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so naive, so gullible and so stupid to buy old “non milk producing cows” from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.
    So thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the “GOYISHE KUP” are indeed” Stupid” as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Moslem Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Jumbo 747 and outwitted the US Militaryand Civilian authorities. The “Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam” of the 1960′s is still alive and well has been put to good use by Larry Silverstein in putting 15 million down and comming out with 7 billion dollars for buidings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. Then on top of that the people in America actually believe that they actually decide who is elected President or for that that actual VOTE is really counted and makes a difference in deciding who represents them in the White House and congress.

    War Is Crime — an excellent and explicitly non-commercial daily digest of the best alternative analysis articles.

  13. Jolly Roger says:

    Ern (above) is absolutely right, and that’s not to be interpreted as anti-Semitism, or hatred. It’s a statement of fact, and it’s an important one because we’re not talking about race, religion, or ethnicity here, but rather a political movement, and the fact that almost ALL sources of information Americans have been exposed to throughout their lives has been delivered by Zionists.

    Your school curriculum, and your knowledge of “history”, as well as your twisted perception of current events are all supplied by one political group, with one political agenda, which incidentally, includes the destruction of this country.

    People better wake up and discover the motives and means of these Zionists who now control America before it’s too late, if it’s not already too late.

    All I have to say is “prepare for war”. No one’s interested in your opinions of war. War is coming your way whether you like it or not.

  14. Agent Carpy says:

    I would recommend Russia Today (RT) they have a great youtube channel, usefully they have the Keiser Report three times a week – which although a bit whacky for the first part – does get some good guests for the second half of the show…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RT_(TV_network)
    http://www.youtube.com/user/RussiaToday

    The advantage of the russian programming is its anther competing agenda thrown into help overcome the mainstream and if you watch the news bulletins from PressTV you combine these to get a reasonable overview of events to overcome the bias from western, russian and eastern propaganda machines…

    Type storm clouds gathering in youtube if you haven’t already, the guy knows his stuff. I also recommend groundedbeing channel in youtube for videos based on creating positive change within yourself. For a British journalist that I have found recently on youtube type swilliamism, he’s definitely one of my favourites. And of course the Corbett report on youtube which you all probably already know about.

  16. Laurance Keyntor says:

    I got rid of my television service many years ago. I could not tell you what is HOT or NOT on TV anymore. I do not have to have some babbling paid nimcompoop blathering on in the background for “white noise” from places of news. You should just get rid of your television service and see how your life changes dramatically.

  17. Rachel says:

    For the most logical and honest of people and uncensored news, I reccomend:

    Rense.com

    There are few who have the courage to delve into the serious issues of morgellons and satanic ritual abuse–some of the most censored issues. This guys got balls.
