NO MORE PROPAGANDA - A CALL FOR THE MARCH FOR REAL NEWS
In 1985 the United States had over 50 media companies. Today just six, corporate-owned conglomerates control mainstream media. This means that only 232 media executives hold sway over the information diet of 277 million Americans - that is, 90% of what we read, watch, or listen to.*
When thus allowed to dominate, corporations inevitably manipulate media to suit their own interests. When media networks are owned, funded, and controlled by a web of corporate conglomerates and international banking interests, information that does not fit their agenda can be easily filtered out or manipulated.
