Seasoned Journalist Exposes How Mainstream Media Brainwashes The Public
Former CBS News investigative reporter Sheryl Attkisson discusses how to spot mainstream media lies.
If you’re aware that only a handful of corporations (6, to be exact) control over 90% of the media, you’re one of the few. What this means, is that everything you hear on the radio, read in the news, and see on television (including the ‘news’), is controlled by one of these six corporations: General Electric (GE), News-Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, and CBS.
This startling truth has become more commonly accepted in recent years, especially sinceOperation Mockingbird, a CIA-based initiative to control mainstream media, was exposed.
Popular avenues of information are now bombarded with clever marketing tactics telling the public what to think and what to buy, how to look, and where to spend hard-earned dollars. Such is evident once you wake up and note the blatant lies continuing to spam the TV screen and newspaper headlines – especially concerning the topics of health, food, war (“terrorism”), poverty, and more.
Sadly, people aren’t even aware of how brainwashed they’ve become. That’s where Sheryl Attkisson comes in.
For her eye-opening TEDx talk (above), the veteran investigative journalist (and former CBS News investigative reporter) reveals how “astroturf,” or fake grassroots movements, funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages.
It’s time the populace wake up and question everything with integrity.
