For decades, mass media in America was used to telling viewers and readers what to think. Now the mainstream media and the Internet has forced many Americans to break free from that paradigm, learn more, and think independently for themselves. The latest Gallup survey found that the majority (over 60 percent) of Americans “have little or no trust” in the mainstream media.
In the United States today, only six mega corporations control the mainstream media. They own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, radio stations, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many prominent websites. Thanks to the Internet, these traditional media no longer have a complete monopoly on the news. It’s disturbing them terribly.
A recent CNN article, “Still ‘paranoid’ after all these years” mocked Americans that don’t trust the media as paranoid conspiracy theorists that have left rationality behind. But more people think the mainstream media has an agenda that is very favorable to the big corporations that spend billions of dollars to advertise on their networks. They emphasize and report on things that fit with that agenda, and they don’t like to talk about things that suggest that there is something wrong with that point of view.
The following are 14 facts that the mainstream media doesn’t really want to talk about right now…
#1 The mainstream media (MSM) doesn’t report the fact that disarming the population has resulted in some of the most horrific massacres in human history. For example:
1911 – Turkey disarmed citizens, and between 1915 – 1917 they murdered 1.5 million Armenians.
1929 – Russia disarmed citizens, and between 1929 – 1953 they murdered 20 million Russians.
1935 – China disarmed citizens, and between 1948 – 1952 they murdered 20 million Chinese.
1938 – Germany disarmed citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 16 million Jews.
1956 – Cambodia disarmed citizens, and between 1975 – 1977 they murdered 1 million people.
1964 – Guatemala disarmed citizens, and between 1964 – 1981 they murdered 100,000 Mayan Indians.
1970 – Uganda disarmed citizens, and between 1971 – 1979 they murdered 300,000 Christians.
#2 The MSM doesn’t report about the fact that the use of genetically engineered seeds has caused on explosion of new “super weeds” that are incredibly difficult for farmers to kill.

#4 The MSM barely reports, if at all, that nearly 500 TSA employees have been fired for stealing from airline travelers since 2003.

#9 The MSM doesn’t report that the United States Postal Service is losing over 20 million dollars a day and is on the verge of financial collapse.
#10 The MSM supports the fact that political correctness is taking over America. The truth is that the media does not see any problem with that at all.

#12 The MSM didn’t report that Barack Obama received more than 99 percent of the vote in more than 100 precincts in Ohio on election day in 2009.
