Sarah Palin weighs in on the corrupt bastards in the Alaska media:
“Just last night it was revealed that the rally that I had for Joe Miller on Thursday, it was revealed and we have the tape to prove it, that the CBS reporters, the affiliate in Alaska, conspired to make up stories about Joe Miller. We have the tape Chris, and I can’t wait until it busts out all over the nation, that shows what it is that we… kinda what I put up with for two years now from the media… but what Joe Miller is faced with in someone like Lisa Murkowsky who feels so entitled to that seat, that she and some of her people including some complicit in the media will do anything, they will stop at nothing, to allow Lisa Murkowsky to get back elected.”
I am saying that we have on tape the CBS reporters in the affiliate up there in Alaska saying, “Let’s find a child molester in the crowd as a supporter of Joe Miller. Let’s blast that. Let’s concoct a Rand Paul moment there. Let’s find any kind of chaos so we can tweet, “Ooh, there’s chaos. Joe Miller got punched.”” That’s sick. Those are corrupt bastards, Chris.
WHO REALLY OWNS THE MEDIA?
Who Really Owns the Media and What do They Want?
Most people are aware that the mass media is biased, of course, how you believe them to be biased usually depends on your viewpoint.
The left-right paradigm that is promoted in this country, pitting Republican against Democrat, or liberal against conservative, is a false flag meant to keep you from seeing the truth.
The media’s bias is not left or right, conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat.
Instead, the media’s bias is corporate-based globalism and the media promotes the globalist agenda of the elites who wish to be your masters and are who really owns the media.
Consider this. in the 1950s, the mass media was a new phenomenon because before only radio had been “syndicated” and enjoyed anything like a national audience.
The mass media corporations began being bought up by large corporate interests, since media makes money and corporations are in business to make money.
When John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jr. was elected President in 1961, the mass media was owned by less than a hundred corporations, many of them affiliated with one another through trade agreements and so forth, but all independently held.
By 1983, most of America’s media outlets were owned by fifty corporations, including such big names as The Walt Disney Corporation, CBS, and so forth.
The Federal Trade Commission had basic rules that prohibited ownership of media outlets in a given area to be owned by only one corporate interest, so competition for local and regional news markets still existed.
WHO REALLY OWNS THE MEDIA. THE COMMON DENOMINATOR
Let’s go through the list, one by one, and see who principal investors and executive management are and what their links to the CFR might be.
WHO REALLY OWNS THE MEDIA. MONOPOLY RULES LIFTED
By the time of the last term of President Clinton those fifty media corporations had been whittled down to 24.
When President George W. Bush took office, changes in the Federal Communications Commission and the FTC made it possible for media ownership to further consolidate.
By 2004, ownership of 90% of America’s media outlets was in the hands of just five corporations. Time Warner, The Murdoch News Corporation, Disney, Bartelsmann of Germany, and Viacom.
All five of these corporations have something in common other than their controlling stakes in most mass media; something that will answer the question of who really owns the media.
TIME WARNER & MURDOCH
Time Warner, which owns many popular cable television networks, is heavily invested in by Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch and its Board is chaired by Richard D. Parsons, who is very good friends with and has close ties with the Rockefeller family, the Bush family, and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Another prominent member of the board, Jessica P. Einhorn, is a member of the North American group of the Trilateral Commission.
The Murdoch News Corp is primarily owned by K. Rupert Murdoch, who is also CEO, with heavy investments from Citi Group and others. Murdoch is a known member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and others.
Andrew S.B. Knight is on the board and is Director of the Rothschild Investment Trust while Michael Armstrong, on the board, is also a CFR member. Kenneth Derr, board member, is also on the board for Halliburton and is a CFR member. Other members of the board have close ties to both the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds as well as the CFR.
DISNEY, BARTLESMAN, VIACOMM/CBS
The Walt Disney Company has several stakeholders and board members in CFR and related groups. These include the wife of CEO Robert Iger, who has not only worked for Ford, but is also a member of the CFR’s California chapter. Anne Sweeney, Co-Chair of Disney Media Networks, is also a CFR member.
Bartelsmann of Germany and Viacom/CBS Corporation both have several board members who are connected to the CFR directly or by family/corporate relationships. These include Philippe P. Dauman (Viacom), Sumner Redstone (formerly Rothstein) and his daughter Shari (Viacom/CBS), and others.
Most of the controllers of the media conglomerates are friends with, often seen with, and do business with both the Rothschild and the Rockefeller families, a few have been spotted at Bohemian Grove ceremonies, and most are members of other secret groups.
That is who really owns the media.
