Americans rely on the mainstream news media daily for the latest reports on the world and domestic events. But a recent study conducted by the Cronkite School of Journalism indicates that nearly 67 percent of Americans don’t trust major media for accurate reporting. They asked Americans specifically – Why they distrust the media and the answers are generally vague. After all reports of news media abuses are normally found on the front page or the nightly news nonetheless they do exist.
If you have a question like this – Who controls the American media? Then you should dive into this article.
American Media Hides Secrets
Rodney King’s arrest story can be told here as a direct example. The mainstream media continues to portray the arrest of Rodney King as a gang of racist police beating a black figure. The media published the news that a “white policeman” was seen on videotape beating an innocent “Blackman” named Rodney King. The home video of the arrest quickly became a national sensation in the months that followed.
The establishment media hyped this local event to the point that many Americans considered it to represent police behavior nationwide. The verdict of not guilty for King’s arresting officers served as the match that lit the fuse. Instantly the media implied that the jury was a bunch of redneck racist. They were trying to use people’s emotions. Corrupted media were creating black and white divisions only for their own benefits. The testimony of 58 witnesses and 200 exhibits presented at the trial revealed to the jury much of what the media kept hidden. Rodney King attracted highway-patrol attention because he was driving recklessly at speeds of up to 115 miles per hour.

Hidden Truth of this arrest which media did not want to publish:
1. Reckless driving
2. Excessive speed
3. Felony evasion
4. Convicted felon
5. Black passengers released without incident.
6. DWI, suspected PCP
7. Resisted arrest
8. Erratic behavior
10. Teaser ineffective
Rodney King’s arrest culminated in an eight-mile chase that cut across numerous lanes of expressway traffic and ran red lights. King was a convicted felon out on parole for armed robbery. There were two other black people in Rodney’s car but they cooperated with the officers. Police handcuffed them and later released them without incident.
Rodney King was under the influence of drugs and alcohol. He initially ignored police orders to step out of the car when he did come out he began acting erratically dancing around. Then he shook his backside in a lewd gesture at a female officer. Ignoring the officer’s demands to get down on the ground, he was tackled by four officers. He rose up and threw off the officers. An officer attempted to subdue him with a stun gun but even the Taser darts fired failed to keep this out of control 260-pound man down. At this point, the arrest was recorded on home video. Like the jury, you were about to witness the first few seconds that the media avoided broadcasting carefully. Being is seen rising up and charging one of the arresting officers. The response of the officers is history.

Although people look at the same evidence and disagree with the verdict. The fact remains the media withheld critical information from the American people in order to make the facts fit the story if they want to tell. The story implies that local law enforcement is a failed institution and that radical changes are needed. “There is certainly nothing new about the drive to federalize control of local police. This is something that goes back decades. The major media have succeeded to a shocking extent in creating an impression for the general public that local police are not to be supported, not to be trusted, they are to be feared and that on the other hand, we can trust implicitly in the federal law enforcement agencies who will come into our communities and protect us against the local police.
Local police exist to protect the rights and the liberties and the property of the law-abiding and they are accountable to the communities. National Police on the other hand exist to protect the interests of the state and the political elite that controls the state.” – An expert said.
Dateline NBC a prime time news program, there’s a story in 1992 entitled “Waiting to Explode” The story includes footage demonstrating that a line of trucks produced by General Motors, readily exploded on impact.
“To see for ourselves what might happen in a side-impact crash, Dateline NBC hired the Institute for safety analysis to conduct a crash demonstration, unlike GM tests the fuel tanks were filled with real gasoline.” – According to an NBC reporter.
Whenever the accident happened, the car immediately caught fire. “At impact, A small hole was punctured in the tank. According to our experts, the pressure of the collision and the crushing of the gas tank forced gasoline to spew from the gas cap. The fuel then erupted into flames when ignited by the impacting car’s headlight.”

After the program airs, one of the firemen at the taping of the crash contacts GM. The conversation inspires a full-scale investigation. Three months later NBC is forced to reveal its role in fabricating the news. That documentary media was corrupted.
A news was published in such a way that – “NBC’s constructor did put incendiary devices under the trucks to ensure that there would be a fire if gasoline were released from the trucks gas tank. We said that crash – “Forced gasoline to spew from the fuel cap” and GM says since the gas cap was the wrong cap for the GM filler tube and because the tank was overfilled the cap came off when the impact occurred. We agree with GM that we should have told our viewers about these incendiary devices. The Dateline reporter, however, said “At impact, a small hole was punctured in the tank.” GM has now x-rayed that tank and found no hole. We acknowledge the placing of the incendiary devices under the tuck was a bad idea from start to finish.”
Oklahoma City bombing
After the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, information came to light that contradicted government claims disseminated through the mainstream media. A government informant revealed that federal agencies had prior knowledge of the terrorist plot and were ignoring several figures linked to the bombing.
Roger Charles, a retired Marine Colonel and a former correspondent in ABC News. His news team interviewed for that confirmation. He said that they had confirmation from a government representative in Denver with the McVeigh prosecution Task Force. They found that the facts were accurate. So, the news team thought they had got an interesting story to get it on air. The team worked hard on the story to air on ABC Evening News. But A phone call surprised Charles to inform him that the story had been killed for the evening. They didn’t know what happened but the decision from New York was not to run the story on it. Some suggestions were provided from NY for reworking and Charles and his team also did it perfectly but again the signal was a big NO.
Bosnia’s Cry for Help
Civil war, a multi-sided and complicated overseas struggle was packaged from an age-old conflict in the Balkans by the mainstream media as melodrama. The predominantly Christian Serbs were cast as the villains. A key maneuver employed to demonize them involved a photo shoot.
The American media of news has always been used to stampede public perception and emotion when there is a lot of talk about the war. Because there is a lot of heart-tugging appeals to pity in particular subjects and it is easy to catch using images.

The Serbs set up an emergency shelter to accommodate Bosnian Refugees. An independent team exposed here another corruption documentary on refugees which has very glaring covers on Time Magazine and such. They revealed how a British film crew photographed a Bosnian emergency shelter to look like a Nazi concentration camp. The film crew positioned themselves inside a barbed-wire enclosure to shoot out at refugees who were free to come and go as they wished. The cameras zeroed in on a refugee whose emaciated appearance was the result of a birth defect.
Benjamin, President of Strategic Issues Research Institute and Military Affairs Analyst, Fox News and CNN said that they found all the allegations of that concentration camp were totally fraud. Even one of the members of that film crew won a Pulitzer Prize for that kind of fabrication. The image helped motivate American involvement in an overseas entanglement that was really fake.
Channeling Public Choice
“The two parties should be almost identical so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shift in policy.” – Carrol Quigley Campaign for president in 1976, the establishment media gave preferential treatment to an unknown governor from a southern state. One of Jimmy Carter’s favorite themes was that if he were elected he would bring new faces and new ideas to Washington. He repeatedly told audiences that he was not beholden to Washington at New-York based establishment that had been running things for so long. At a Boston rally at that campaign, Carter said that “The people of this country know from bitter experience that we are not going to get these changes merely by shifting around the same group of insiders.
The insiders had the chase that they have not delivered.” After Carter was elected however he quickly forgot his promise of new faces and ideas. His administration was packed with individuals from the same crowd of insiders that had been running things for decades. C.Vance, W. Blumenthal, H.brown and many familiar faces were there long ago. For national security advisor, Carter selected Zbigniew Brzeziński, a board member of the CFR. Brzezinski inducted Carter into the establishment. Shortly before the media helped boost Carter’s status to national prominence.

President of The John Birch Society, John F. McManus said that people in the media were the ones who could dig out the real issues and so on. But they didn’t do it and there were always some areas that were off-limits. It was prohibited to get into those things such as the famous televised debate with Clinton and his democratic opponents in 1992. He added, “Here he was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the trilateral mission just like George Bush but none of the opponents of Clinton for the Democratic nomination would bring it up.”
From World War 2 to the present the establishment has maintained its lock grip on the presidency; the subservient media keeps such information from becoming news.
Before reading the rest of this whole article, it is good to know about the Council on Foreign Relation (CFR) and what they do.
What is the Council on Foreign Relations?

CFR, Council on Foreign Relations is known to us as an independent nonpartisan publisher and think tank that promotes understanding of foreign policy and international relations. The Council on Foreign Relations is dedicated to being a resource for its 5,103 members has included business executives, government officials, religious leaders, journalists, educators, civic, students and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the foreign policy choices for America and the world. It was founded in 1921, almost 99 years ago. The headquarter of CFR is in New York City with an additional office in Washington, D.C.
What does CFR do?
CFR’s main activity is already given on their website. According to their websites, CFR maintains a diverse membership in order to promote interest and develop expertise in the next generation of foreign policy leaders. They publish a preeminent magazine of U.S. foreign policy and international affairs named Foreign Affairs. CFR also sponsors Independent Task Forces that work to produce reports with both findings and foreign policy topics. Their target is also to keep up-to-date information and analysis about American foreign policy and world events on its website.

History of Council on Foreign Relations
The year is 1917 and representative Oscar Callaway enters a disturbing state into the US Congressional Record. The state reveals why JP Morgan interest hired 12 high-ranking news managers. They were asked to find out the most influential newspapers in the United States of America. They were to figure out how many news organizations it would take to control, the policy of the Daily Press of the United States.
The 12 found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. An agreement was reached and the policy of the papers was bought and an editor was placed at each paper to ensure that all published information was in keeping with the new policy.
Soon that policy would be defined by a front group formed by JP Morgan and his colleagues named Warburg, Rockefeller. In fact, Morgan’s personal attorney was the founding president of the organization, the Council on Foreign Relations.

Today the CFR maintains that its goal is to increase America’s understanding of the world. However, the rare admissions of the insiders revealed the actual objective of this highly exclusive club. In the early 60s, a Georgetown University professor collected information for a book favorable to the network of powerful men who founded the CFR. Professor Carroll Quigley is allowed to examine the confidential papers and secret records of this network for two years. Quigley finds that these men aim to create a world system of financial control in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. In short, they seek quiet and total control of the entire world. The CFR is their most visible conduit for carrying out that agenda.
CFR members include America’s wealthiest tycoons as well as the highly placed elite in government academic institutions, tax-exempt foundations and the establishment media. Ruling Class Journalists written by Richard Harwood describes the CFR membership as the ruling establishment in the United States. The Washington Post article boasted that news reporter who CFR members do not merely analyze and interpret foreign policy for the United States. They helped to make it who are these policymakers. Many of their faces are familiar. NBC’s Tom Brokaw, CBS’s Dan Rather, ABC’s Barbara Walters, Jim Lehrer of PBS, William F Buckley of National Review Media and Mogul Rupert Murdoch owner of the giant multi-faceted News Corporation these media heavyweights and many others like them are members of the CFR.
Powerful corporations are also invited to be members at the close of the 20th century. CFR influence presided over far-reaching consolidations of media control. In 1995, CFR members Michael Eisner of Disney and ABC’s Thomas Murphy merged their media empire. Soon after the merger, the Disney ABC Empire became a CFR corporate member and in the year 2000, the world’s largest Internet Service provider in America Online joined forces with Time Warner. On the world’s largest news organizations the CEOs favoring the move are CNN’s Thomas Johnson and Time Warner’s Geral Levin both CFR members once again. Another media giant is created under the shadow of CFR influence. Today an elite handful of individuals define the agendas that are supported by the Empire of the establishment.

One of CFR’s strongest American media allies is the New York Times as a major outlet for the establishment viewpoint. The Times has achieved dominant influence over the reporting of national and international news. The Times is relied upon by many editors in the mainstream news media for direction on how to portray world events. In addition, The Times wire service retails the establishment line to subsidiary outlets such as broadcast news distributors and regional newspapers. The competition between these outlets rests primarily on the style of regurgitation of the same message.
Making the News
“The executives, the editors in print media and the senior producers, executive producers in the visual media, these are the people that have the ideological bias and what’s probably almost as important as the personal friendships! They go to the same country clubs, they go to the same dinners, they socialize with a lot of people that they cover and yet this is where corruption sets in any system when the censors and the monitors become friendly with the people.” – According to Benjamin and Roger Charles.
Revealing the truth is not the real purpose of working in the media now. They have now more to do with career enhancement than reporting the truth. To get ahead they just follow the higher level’s order. The corporate sector and the business families have control of these American media organizations because they are already linked to political and economic elites and they can use their abilities to influence public opinion as to capital.
