Media Bias Effecting Awareness of Important Issues

 updated March 7, 2011


This summary article explains why most media outlets don’t accurately report information about important political realities. Topics include explaining who the people are that most control the media, as well as their reasons, means, and methods of controlling it.

This page is a part of the article Creating Political Change Through Communication and Legislation.












Mainstream media is controlled by political elites through secretive political organizations, tax-exempt foundations, and special interest groups

Information tends to travel through a series of filters before it is reported by most media outlets. These filters include political elites who own and support the media outlets, political organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), tax exempt foundations such as the Ford Foundation, and special interest groups-- all of which have an interest in censoring, altering, or limiting information being reported often for the purpose of furthering deceptive ”globalist” agendas.

This video segment from the documentary ”Behind the Big News” describes how the powerful political organization the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) controls and distorts information put out by mainstream news sources in order to protect wide ranging Establishment interests and objectives. Issues discussed include the CFR being founded in 1921 by J.P. Morgan, the fact that most major individuals in the news media are members of the organization, and the CFR’s many deceptive globalist objectives.

See the video page for a full written description of this clip. Also see the article A Summary of the Documentary Video ”Behind the Big News” for more video clips from this documentary.







The same political elites who control most mainstream news sources also control ”left wing” news sources such as ”Democracy Now!” and PBS. (Click on the image for a larger view.) image from educate-yourself.org








The problem of media industry consolidation

From the Media Reform Information Center:



"In 1983, 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the U.S. At the time, Ben Bagdikian was called ”alarmist” for pointing this out in his book, The Media Monopoly. In his 4th edition, published in 1992, he wrote ”in the U.S., fewer than two dozen of these extraordinary creatures own and operate 90% of the mass media” — controlling almost all of America's newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, books, records, movies, videos, wire services and photo agencies. He predicted then that eventually this number would fall to about half a dozen companies. This was greeted with skepticism at the time. When the 6th edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 2000, the number had fallen to six. Since then, there have been more mergers and the scope has expanded to include new media like the Internet market. More than 1 in 4 Internet users in the U.S. now log in with AOL Time-Warner, the world's largest media corporation. In 2004, Bagdikian's revised and expanded book, The New Media Monopoly, shows that only 5 huge corporations — Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch's News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, and Viacom (formerly CBS) — now control most of the media industry in the U.S. General Electric's NBC is a close sixth."








The placement of ”controlled opposition” as communicators

One of the most common tactics the ruling elite uses is the placement of ”controlled opposition” communicators who are used to disseminate disinformation to their trusting audiences.


The controlling group the Illuminati has written in internal documents:

”Literature and journalism are two of the most important educative forces and therefore our government will become proprietor of the majority of the journals. This will neutralize the injurious influence of the privately owned press and will put us in possession of of a tremendous influence upon the public mind. . . If we give permits for ten journals, we shall ourselves found thirty, and so on in the same proportion. This, however, must in no ways be suspected by the public.

”For which reason all journals published by us will be of the most opposite, in appearance, tendencies, and opinions, thereby creating confidence in us and bringing over to us our quite unsuspicious opponents who will thus fall into our trap and be rendered harmless.”




Deception at the Million Mom March

This video clip from the documentary ”Behind the Big News” explains how a publicity stunt created by gun disarmament advocates for an event called the ”Million Mom March” used deceptive techniques for creating an illusion in the media of having more popular support than it actually had.

In the weeks before the event, many major news reports were used to create public interest, and the public was continually told that it’s organizer Donna Dees-Thomases was only a ”suburban housewife and political novice” who was shocked into action after watching the televised aftermath of a shooting at a day care center. In reality, Dees-Thomases is a political veteran, who is a Congressional staffer and publicist for CBS News that is a ”shrewd, well-connected player for the media elite.”

Also despite lackluster attendance at the event, the media promoted the illusion of a ”nationwide demand” for imposing more gun laws. It is explained that as the global elite are attempting to set up a world government, they have an agenda of confiscating the guns of the citizens of the United States.

A Summary of the Book <em>Do As I Say (Not As I Do)</em>
updated March 28, 2012
A book written in 2005 by Peter Schweizer entitled ”Do As I Say (Not As I Do)” contains surprising information about many influential mainstream political figures, focusing on a theme of ”the hypocrisy of 'liberals'”— which despite attempting to downplay hypocrisies of ”conservatives,” nonetheless contains relevant information about many well-known politicians and communicators which is also of interest to those who align themselves with having liberal views.

This article summarizes key points mentioned about three individuals in the book— the filmmaker Michael Moore, the globalist financier George Soros, and the political commentator Noam Chomsky. Individuals also discussed in the book include Hillary Clinton, Al Franken, Ted Kennedy, Ralph Nader, Nancy Pelosi, Barabra Streisand, Gloria Steinem, and Cornel West.



Popular ”Zeitgeist” Conspiracy Documentaries are New World Order Disinformation
updated March 1, 2011
The popular documentary films ”Zeitgeist” and ”Zetgeist Addedum” mix legitimate suppressed political information with disinformation meant to create support for secretive long term objectives of the global elite, including the destruction of institutions such as religion, nations, and monetary systems for the establishment of a deceptively utopian society known as the ”New World Order.”








The use of ”distraction journalism”

”Distraction journalism” is the practice of criticizing issues that have been pre-selected to be ”demonized” in order to draw attention away from other more important issues. The effects of distraction journalism are so widespread that it often clouds the focus of many well-meaning activists who otherwise would not be supportive of many issues and politicians if they were better informed.

A good example of distraction journalism would be much of the media’s criticism of unethical journalism practices at Fox News, when in fact the rest of the mainstream media also engages in as extreme of corrupt practices with the only difference being that they conceal doing so more effectively.

Another example of distraction journalism would be the media’s focusing on criticizing the obvious corruptions of the Bush Administration while not discussing or even denying wrongdoings of the Obama Administration-- including activities that are advancing the same agendas that the Bush Administration had been following. Many of the corrupt individuals who had been associated with the Bush Administrations are the same people who are now associated with Obama’s Administration. See the article ”Neocon Globalist” Aspects of the Obama Administration.







Journalists and media outlets often fail to report current problems because doing so would expose the fact that they did not previously report issues leading up to those problems

Journalists and media outlets often ”self-censor” due to previously failing to report issues which have led up to current problems. Alternative media and activists must communicate the missing information effectively enough to raise public awareness to a threshold of forcing mainstream media to overcome the embarrassment of previously neglecting to report about such issues.







The more serious the crimes commited by the government, the less likely they are to be accurately reported by the media



A horrible reality is the fact that the more serious the crimes committed by the global elite are, the more likely those crimes will be covered up by the media-- this creates an environment which makes it necessary for them to commit increasingly heinous acts in order to get away with doing so.







The importance of members of the media who wish to communicate important suppressed information coordinating for concurrently ”coming out” in large numbers

Many journalists and other members of the media ”self-censor” due to fears of reprisals or lack of promotions. When well-known journalists and celebrities make public statements about controversial issues which are not fully understood by the general public, it tends to generate much controversy and difficulty for those speaking out due to backlash arising from their individually speaking about such issues. The best way to circumvent such problems is for such individuals to first coordinate and then concurrently come out in large numbers, which will serve to generate even more interest in the topic and reduce the amount of potential backlash experienced.
