If you still don't believe that the mainstream media is controlled, better watch this YouTube video. Late night talk show host Conan O'Brien and his team expose the mainstream media. Note how all of the different news stations are saying the same thing in the same order. Keep in mind that a majority of news and TV stations in the west are owned by a small select handful of corporations.
These corporations in essence control the release of information to the general public at large. This is extremely dangerous as only a small number of people can inform and influence tens of millions of people at a time! Remember the famous quote on media control, "Whoever controls the media, controls the mind." Knowing this fact, you might want to turn off your TV for good.
