    Journalists and media houses have their own agendas and govt influence cannot be ruled out.

    It is a worldwide disease.

    Journalists make ideal spies since they can use their cover and roam around pretending to pick up news, when in actuality they are snooping and under the pay and assistance of their countries intelligence agencies.

    Further, planted opinion in the form of informed comments can shape the nation's attitude towards an issue.

    For example the manner in which it was said the Saddam Hussein's Iraq was bristling with WMD, when none could be discovered or even planted, because of international attention, to make a story!

    When any media coverage is owned by a select few, it is easy to shape public opinions and distort reality. Ratings keep people divided over silly issues like which network has the better anchor but behind the scenes it is the same old same old.

    Oh, yes, I understand that, and I am saying ratings system tends to give Americans the news coverage they like because CNN, FoxNews, et al. track ratings. I don't believe government news agencies in Russia and China, just for example, have to give their audiences what they want. The term "captive audience" comes to mind here. :pokerface:

    You may believe the US government controls US news media content, but I don't, and you haven't convinced me.

    And if I may point out again, more people around the globe want to come to USA for its freedom than to Russia or China...

    Just because Americans don't trust the mainstream media (MSM) doesn't mean they don't watch the MSM. That's the beauty of the system, see?

    If you can't make a point with words, throw up a large, garish graphic; seems to be the new thing for discussion on DFI.

    Why so annoyed? Are you aware of Tavistock Institute? You may want to look it up before deciding whether to be convinced if media is used as a propaganda tool in US or not.

    The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations by Dr. John coleman (Oct. 3, 2006)

    Getting personal won't help you much. Better try to think for yourself yes?

    Apparently not much because those "big shiny graphics" are already created by your own people. They help me in making a point though!
