Six Companies Control about 75% of Media Sources


 

Eureka!  And the answer is …

by Mustang

We’ve come to use the word media as a means of communications (radio, television, newspapers, magazines, the internet) that influence people.  One question that niggles all of us from time to time is how much influence “media” has on the American people, our culture, and/or our national psyche. 

I did a cursory investigation, and what I learned was that less than ten companies control all media sources in the United States.  These include, in general ranking, the Walt Disney Company, NBC-Universal/Comcast, Time-Warner, Viacom-CBS, Sony America Corporation, and Seagram’s (yes, the whiskey company). 

Their involvement in films, music, television, radio, newspapers, magazines, Internet and social communications platforms roughly equal 75% of the total of American media offerings.

Jaw dropping.

Six companies in control of everything that impacts American society.  It is interesting to see who controls these companies.  They are mostly self-loathing, American-hating Jews.  I could go on to discuss the filth in films, decadent lyrics in music, anti-American television broadcasting and newspapers, television productions that must include a percentage of homosexuals, transgenders, and at least several psychopathic and well-tattooed and pierced but “funny” characters. 

I might even mention the incident where Disney was caught transmitting subliminal messages to our children —which over several years of debate, has convinced parents that there’s nothing to worry about because, after all, colonialism was really a very bad thing.  Besides, what pre-teen doesn’t think about sex?

But then it occurred to me that media companies may not be the problem.  They only deliver what “the people” demand —what they are willing to pay for.  It’s been going on for a while, now.  I remember my mother plopping me down in front of the black and white television when she wanted to do things without having me under foot. 

Today, parents provide their young children with video games that allow the player to rape and murder animated characters.  Cell phones are now minicomputers, so the kids can entertain themselves for hours on end, releasing parents to do their own cell phone thing. 

We can even have verbal fights on Twitter, and never worry about someone punching us in the nose for being rude or obnoxious.  And we wonder what happened to our society.  We moan about what’s happened to the America of our youth.

What happened to our country was atrocious parenting.  This, too, is nothing new; instead of having an abusive father who we feared might beat the crap out of us for misbehaving, we have abusive fathers who simply ignore us.  And Mom?  We won’t be receiving any “motherly advice” from modern Mom.  She’s on the cell phone, too.

All of this leads me to the conclusion, in agreement with my Internet friend Bunkerville, that it’s too late to save America.  It’s already gone —not coming back.  But as much as we want to blame “media” for our abysmal state of affairs, it really does boil down to parenting —or lack of it.

How am I wrong?

    I was tempted to say what I usually say about it being education, but you’re right. The parents let their children be indoctrinated by the filth in education. So, Parents.
    as Yuri Brezanov says “you have two generations (probably 3 now) of marxist/leninist teachings pumped into te soft heads on young people without any push back. What you need is to educate 2 or 3 generations to be patrotic common sense people.”

    I don’t see that happening anytime soon either. Parents supporting promoting all this transgender crap, drag queen, moslem tolerant crap infecting their kids. I saw a video of a bunch of girls hat looked like they were 5 and 6 sitting on a wall with anti-Trump/Conservative signs all yelling “F— Trump” over and over. 38% of millennials support adopting communism.

    I hope they’ll give us 20 more years, but these dipsticks ala AOC are going to be entering politics and implementing communism.

    I ask myself more and more if, in the past – before the influx of the web, multiple cable news networks, etc – the media was just as politically biased then as they are now, only did they do a better job of hiding it? I’ve never reached a conclusive answer, but tend to think yes, they were. I dunno….my 2 cents.

      Good point. I suspect they were as biased. I have always wondered, how was it possible for Walter Cronkite to become the “most trusted voice in America?” The man was a news reader with about as much expertise as Shepard Smith or Wolf Blitzer. But then, another poll (years ago) revealed that Betty Crocker was among the most trusted personalities, as well. Betty Crocker doesn’t actually exist, any more than Aunt Jamima does. And then there was Edward R. Murrow, who led the charge against Sen. McCarthy and the “red scare.” The only problem is that McCarthy was right all along, and the red menace is alive and well inside the US government. So, there is plenty of evidence that the American people have been stuck on stupid for quite some time. Somewhere along the line, we made the transition from “Father Knows Best” to “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and a plethora of other truly disgusting “comedies”. Good grief.

    You really have to look at the resources you put in front of your kids. Thank God my son has made it to his senior year of college (give or take, depending on what gets changed by the university).

    Succinct as always Mustang. Here’s my simplistic overview:
    Bingo! It’s the parents stupid! The one eyed baby sitter, once the TV, is now the cell phone. Today’s kids can watch porn as well as listen to rap, filthy or otherwise on the phones given them by their parents. And rather than bug a distracted always busy parent to take them to the mall today’s kids can order on-line with a CC.
    Those of us who raised our children now in their 30’s-40’s without Nintendo in the house were a rarity back then. My best friends’ two children along with my two are all successful career people raising our still young grandchildren with piano lessons, sports participation and manners (how about that), no cell phones and no gaming. Those will surely come eventually but not during their formative years.
    Along with the 15 cent slice of pizza and $1 movie and $1 toll on our tunnels and bridges our world in its cultural death throes as are those of us who grew up in the 50’s, 60’s and into the 70’s. All innocence is pretty much gone thanks to the media pimps giving the people what they want. But once elected will the first Marxist president whoever it may be take away our cell phones as well as our money and fossil fuels?
