Who Owns The Mainstream Media? Are We Being Lied To?
When you turn on the nightly news, you might expect it to be objective and fact-based – but is that really what you’re getting? Almost everyone has opinions and are naturally biased, but our mainstream media outlets have become overrun with propaganda from governmental agencies and corporations, and news agencies are no longer acting independently. Here in America, the mainstream media sources (like CNN, NBC, Wall Street Journal, ABC, CBS, Fox) are owned and controlled by a small handful of powerful corporations.
What we’ve been left with is hundreds of reporters that are literally just reading the SAME SCRIPT they’ve been given by their owners. Don’t believe me? Watch this…
What ever happened to real journalism? Reporters have stopped investigating and are merely acting as puppets.
If you’re older than 30 years old, it wasn’t really this way when you were a kid – but a lot has changed since then. Today, 90% of our news agencies are owned by six corporate giants who pull the strings on everything that is reported on the TV, internet, and in the newspapers.
Who owns the mainstream media:
- Comcast (NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, USA, E!, Bravo, 26 television stations in America and more)
- Time Warner (CNN, TBS, TNT, HBO, and more)
- CBS Corporation (60 Minutes, CBS, CBS Radio, the CW, Showtime, 30 television stations, and more)
- News Corp (Wall Street Journal, New York Post, Fox, Fox News, Fox Business, FX, and more)
- Walt Disney Company (ABC, ESPN, A&E, several radio stations, and more)
- Viacom (MTV, BET, CMT, Nickelodeon, VH1, Comedy Central, Spike, and more)
How is our government infiltrating and controlling the media?
Through the U.S. government’s premiere propaganda program known as Operation Mockingbird, in which the CIA pays off mainstream media outlets to spread lies, in order to control the public opinion on specific issues.
Specific examples of the U.S. government’s control over the mainstream media:
Not concerned? Why does any of this matter?
We are losing diversity of opinion and freedom of speech, while being fed propaganda and fake news by the mainstream media. Free speech is suppressed and there are powerful gatekeepers for opposing ideas. A handful of the world’s elite is in control of everything we see, hear, and read. Our ability to use critical thinking has been greatly diminished, which has created the perfect climate for fake news to flourish and warp public’s perception of reality.
Why are they doing this?
Quite simply, it makes it easier to control the masses and keep them distracted so the shadow government can further their globalist agenda of establishing a New World Order.
“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a World Government.The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
– David Rockefeller to Trilateral Commission in 1991

Thankfully, we have an alternative!
“Independent news” comes from any media outlet that isn’t sponsored or influenced by the government or corporate interests. It’s often called “alternative media”, but I like to think of it as “real news”. Check out our list of independent news sources and the latest independent news headlines on our homepage. Most importantly, use the share buttons at the top of the screen to share this website with everyone you know. We need to spread the word and get real news into the hands of everyone! We need to be the change we want to see in the world.
