Why Are We Still Listening To Mainstream News?

Corporations and billionaires own the “trusted” media that keep us “informed.” Does this make sense to you?

  • Billionaire Mortimer Zuckerman owns US News & World Report and the New York Daily News.
  • Billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong owns the Los Angeles Times.
  • Billionaire Warren Buffett has a controlling interest in Berkshire Hathaway, which owns 70 daily newspapers in the U.S.
  • Billionaire Rupert Murdoch has a controlling interest in News Corp, which owns The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post
  • Billionaire John Henry is the principal owner of the Boston Globe.

Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.

— Jim Morrison

Let’s be honest about how the world works.

If COVID-19 closes half of all small businesses, these billionaires won’t see their portfolios evaporate; instead, they’ll buy distressed companies at bargain prices. If the stock market crashes, they won’t flirt with homelessness.

Again, think about what this means.
