The Corporate Media and The Political Agenda

“If you don’t read the newspaper, your uninformed, If you read the newspaper, your misinformed.”
In a recent Gallup poll, only 21 percent of Americans have confidence in television news. Most people do not buy the lies the media pushes on them. Richard Cohen, senior producer for CBS stated, “We are going to impose our agenda on the coverage by dealing with issues and subjects that we choose to deal with.”
It was reported that the New York Times admitted that almost every major news outlet in America allows the government and Obama/Romney campaign officials to censor their sorties. Reporters have agreed to submit their quotes to the campaign office for “quote approval” most of the time being denied. This is exactly what Benito Mussolini and other dictators have done with the press that fell to their control. Reporters who wrote to Mussolini’s disliking would hear from him with threatening rebukes.
The mainstream media likes to tailor-fit their stories in alignment with political and social agendas, there is no question about that. Many believe it is time to pull back the curtain on those who are bought and paid for, namely the editors who direct the news as well as those who report the news.
How do you feel?
