Media control and where your tax dollars are going Coast to Coast Radio 8/30/2011 the first half of Tuesday's show, author Jim Marrs
shared his concerns over corporate media control, and the decrease in journalistic standards. He cited how US News & World Report
recently ran a straw poll for the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination, and though they listed 10 candidates, they didn't include Ron Paul. This is not journalism, it's propaganda, he suggested. "We're now under total corporate domination," he continued, naming Time Warner, Universal, Viacom, News Corp., and Disney. "Those five corporations control everything you see and hear," and this goes beyond the news department to include films, television, cable, books, music, and magazines, he said.
Marrs touched on speculations and conspiracies regarding Comet Elenin, the East Coast earthquake, and 9-11. Regarding the quake, there was no seismic activity leading up to it, which was highly unusual and didn't fit the pattern of a normal earthquake, he said, adding that a Russian intelligence agency claimed that the quake was caused by an underground nuclear blast. Addressing what he calls the "trillion dollar conspiracy," he noted that Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Fed, admitted that some $14 trillion of US tax money was sent overseas to prop up foeign banks and corporations.
