СМИ – вот кто наполняет наши мозги

    1983г. - американские СМИ контролировали 50 корпораций.
    2012г. – 6 невероятно мощных медиа-корпораций.
    Это одна из причин того, почему за последние годы мы видим рост альтернативных СМИ. Мейнстрим-СМИ быстро теряют доверие, и люди всё чаще начинают искать в других источниках правду о том, что происходит.
    Многие ли в мейнстриме скажут, каким злом является ФРС, или что нам угрожает такой деривативный пузырь, который может уничтожить всю мировую финансовую систему целиком? Многие ли будут писать об угрожающих темпах деиндустриализации Америки или правду о жадности Goldman Sachs?
    Конечно, есть несколько храбрых журналистов в мейнстриме, которым время от времени удаётся протащить такие истории втихаря от их корпоративных боссов, но в целом существует совершенно чёткое понимание того, что есть определённые вещи, которые просто не появляются в мейнстрим-СМИ.
    .....Общество обязано проголосовать ногами, иначе промывка мозгов не остановится. Но и СМИ сами себя эгоистически похоронят, как и все прочие эгоистические бизнесы. Такова диалектика развития эгоизма. Общий кризис уничтожит и их.

    Who Owns The Media? The 6 Monolithic Corporations That Control Almost Everything We Watch, Hear And Read
    Back in 1983, approximately 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the United States. Today, ownership of the news media has been concentrated in the hands of just six incredibly powerful media corporations. These corporate behemoths control most of what we watch, hear and read every single day. They own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many of our favorite websites. Sadly, most Americans don't even stop to think about who is feeding them the endless hours of news and entertainment that they constantly ingest. Most Americans don't really seem to care about who owns the media. But they should. The truth is that each of us is deeply influenced by the messages that are constantly being pounded into our heads by the mainstream media. The average American watches 153 hours of television a month. In fact, most Americans begin to feel physically uncomfortable if they go too long without watching or listening to something. Sadly, most Americans have become absolutely addicted to news and entertainment and the ownership of all that news and entertainment that we crave is being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands each year.

    The six corporations that collectively control U.S. media today are Time Warner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., CBS Corporation and NBC Universal. Together, the "big six" absolutely dominate news and entertainment in the United States. But even those areas of the media that the "big six" do not completely control are becoming increasingly concentrated. For example, Clear Channel now owns over 1000 radio stations across the United States. Companies like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft are increasingly dominating the But it is the "big six" that are the biggest concerns. When you control what Americans watch, hear and read you gain a great deal of control over what they think. They don't call it "programming" for nothing.

    Back in 1983 it was bad enough that about 50 corporations dominated U.S. media. But since that time, power over the media has rapidly become concentrated in the hands of fewer and fewer people....

    In 1983, fifty corporations dominated most of every mass medium and the biggest media merger in history was a $340 million deal. … [I]n 1987, the fifty companies had shrunk to twenty-nine. … [I]n 1990, the twenty-nine had shrunk to twenty three. … [I]n 1997, the biggest firms numbered ten and involved the $19 billion Disney-ABC deal, at the time the biggest media merger ever. … [In 2000] AOL Time Warner’s $350 billion merged corporation [was] more than 1,000 times larger [than the biggest deal of 1983].

    Today, six colossal media giants tower over all the rest. Much of the information in the chart below comes from mediaowners.com. The chart below reveals only a small fraction of the media outlets that these six behemoths actually own....
