This blog should be a starting point for your own discovery of the FACTS. I will lay out as much info as I have time to do, but the majority of the work will be for you to research these things on your own. You will never fully understand everything unless you take it upon yourself to fact check. When you start putting the pieces together it will become clear.
Welcome to our new blog! The goal here is to inform you about whats going on in this country. Everything I post will be backed up with links and sources. I am not another random nut on the web. I am a regular guy that has had enough of our freedoms being washed away with every new bill that passes.
Many of the things I will present will be shocking for those of you who are more worried about Facebook, TV or your iPhone than what is going on in government these days.
So this first post will focus on these distractions. And to first understand that these are just distractions we must first recognize where they are coming from. The mass media is controlled by a few powerful people.
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.
So who are these people lets take a look. My intent is to show the ties between theses media moguls the government and other industries. As you go through this info you will notice that there are many connections to various government officials. However they aren’t always within the same party you see it doesn’t matter who they support as long as it’s someone in power.
Time Warner CEO -Jeffery L. Bewkes
He serves on Council on Foreign Relations Board of Directors and has worked on Al Gore, John Kerry and John McCain s campaigns in the past.
Murdoch’s News Corporation CEO -Rupert Murdoch
Mr. Murdochs engagment s include: Dreier for Congress, Friends of Hillary, Hillary Clinton for President, John McCain 2008 and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Viacom CEO- Philippe P. Dauman
Dauman’s ties include: Gore 2000, Hillary Clinton for President, McCain 2000, Obama for President, and Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee.
I will not go into each one but I will post the info for you to look for your self.

These are the people who control what you see on TV and hear on the radio. As you look through their profiles you can see all their affiliations.
Then you have to ask yourself do they have an agenda?
If so what might it be?
Letting go of the mass media is the first step and most important in your journey to the truth.
“Do you know we are ruled by TV?”
— from the poem An American Prayer by Jim Morrison
“The media can wreak great harm on the family when it offers an inadequate or even distorted vision of life, of the family itself and of religion and morality.”
— Pope John Paul II, May 2004
“Everybody’s got values . . . The thing that frightens me is the way that an eroding public school system . . . and television on all over the place is leading to a steady dumbing down of the American public and a corrosion of basic critical thinking in the population.”
— Jamie Raskin, American University law professor, November 2004 on the Democracy Now! radio program
