It’s no secret that America’s broader business community engages in backroom deals. These deals may evolve into hidden relationships between shadowy segments of government and corporate media that are unprincipled, ultimately affecting the way we live as law-abiding citizens.
Below are a few examples:
1. Corporate media [i.e., ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC/NBC, etc.] may selectively provide corporations, individuals, and or government with free paid advertisements in exchange for private citizens’ personal information. By the way, in 2020, Rashida Jones was named MSNBC’s new president, so why isn’t she in NBCUniversal’s leadership line-up?
2. Newsreaders and outright lies, or slanted news stories that mislead the public: Remember the 2011 “Monsanto Forced Fox TV to Censor Coverage of Dangerous Milk Drug” news story. Some anchors – Americans simply cannot trust.
3. Snooping activities and backroom deals are undermining the marketplace by facilitating an enormous influx of unwanted targeted advertisements. As a result, the aggressive concept of picking winners and losers behind closed doors has all but decimated free markets.
