Jose: Do you think Trump might have a point when he says the election is rigged? I also received this email about the media elite and the corporations pulling the strings: It’s a big club for a select few:
Only 6 Corporations:
1. GE (owns Comcast, NBC, Universal Pictures, Focus Features)
2. Newscorp (owns Fox, Wall Street Journal, New York Post)
3. Disney (owns ABC, ESPN, Pixar, Miramar, Marvel Studios)
4. Viacom (owns MTV, Nick JR, SET, CMT, Paramount Pictures)
5. Time Warner (owns CNN, HBO, TIME, Warner Bros)
6. CBS (owns Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, NFL.COM, Jeopardy, 60 Minutes)
These six corporations own 1,500 newspapers, 1,100 magazines, 9,000 radio stations, 1,500 TV stations, 2,400 publishers. (I cannot refute this information!)
And consider the relationships, which are kept within the family (some may be outdated and fleeting, but nevertheless true at one time):
—ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.
—CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.
—ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney
—ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary
—ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood
—CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.
Do you think there might be a little bias in the news because of these self-interested relationships. Do you think, or do you suspect it to be so?
MAF: Hi Jose,
Media bias has been recorded by political science professors as far back as the 1970s, but it has gone on for much longer than that. It is indeed a select club.
To be in the media and corporativist club, one might have to be a progressive CFR member or Trilateralist, and that requires prostituting your beliefs, your integrity, participating in incestuous relationships (as your data demonstrate) and money! Still, though, we cannot blame the corporations for every evil. The corporations also do a hell of a lot of good, when kept in line by informed and vigilant citizens. Your data helps to explain why there is extensive liberal media bias by the incestuous, self-interested, media cartel opinion molders. Global socialism is OK with the corporativist elites in partnership with governments, as long as they are above the fray and able to pull the strings of the working, toiling middle class. The masses below are kept satisfied and in the liberal plantation providing the elite power base in exchange for bread and circuses.
Because they can exercise greater political and economic power when the Democrats are in power, the media elite and their incestuous corporativist relations favor the authoritarian socialism of the Democrats to liberty and the free enterprise system generally favored by the Republicans. This has been well-demonstrated with the evolving concept of socialized medicine in the U.S. The concept of corporativism (the symbiotic partnership of government with the mega-corporations, particularly at the international level) is beyond the present capability of comprehension for the average American in this age of intellectual declivity. The average citizen today erroneously equates “crony capitalism” with the free enterprise system, when corporativism is by far closer to the mark.
But I cannot say that the elections are rigged. We must also blame the decline in standards, growing ignorance and superficiality of our fellow citizens, the American people, who are allowing themselves to be indoctrinated by the media and the popular culture, who are allowing themselves to grow soft in mind and body, who are allowing themselves to become dependent in the liberal plantation in exchange for their votes, even if they lose their liberty.
Those of us who speak out and expose it, get ostracized or are deemed mentally ill. Or as Dr. Blaylock points out one could become an ingratiating progressive antihero! But no matter who wins, the media elite profit from the charade.

RLB: Jose and Miguel,
Great material. Yes it is like the old TV program — “All in the Family.” The CFR/Trilateral link is that most of the same communication elite also are CFR/Trilateral members and have been for many years. You will also recall many of the international banking families are also intermarried. The great Foundations also all share directors and this keeps them all on the same page. The Foundations, which are headed by the CEOs of major multinational corporations and international bankers, are the power and wealth behind the NWO that is being designed.
They control the government, the media, the foreign policy, the judiciary, most publishing (especially textbooks used in schools), the international organizations (UN) and the social policy of America and much of the world. Rene Wormser’s book, Foundations: Their Power and Influence, demonstrates this in great detail. No segment of our society or of government is free of their guiding hand. As far as corporations, they have their good side — well, they do in terms of productivity — but, as Mises and Hayek both pointed out, they are not strictly free market; they are heavily burdened with their own bureaucracy; they are slow to respond to innovation; they are elitist and they detest, for the most part, competition. Most government regulations, as pointed out by the Manhattan Institute, originated within the corporations, especially multinationals, so as to avoid competition and have the safety net of taxpayer monies and treasury generated “helicopter money.”
As for the election being stolen — well, the mass of the public is poorly informed on the issues and most of their knowledge of the issues comes from the propagandists of the NWO. Yet, as we have seen in every country taken by the collectivists (the communists) they take no chances and will fix the elections. I think it was in Uzbekistan, that the winner received 100% of the vote — most likely he would have won anyway based on extensive indoctrination of the populace and harassment of the opposition candidate (as with Trump) — but they could afford to take no chances so they fixed the election. It’s the communist way. It is interesting to note that it was the Far Left (and communist operatives) that campaigned for the 18-year-old vote in the US — just as they have in other countries. This is because they know the 18 to 20-year olds are most easily manipulated by propaganda and generally have little or no knowledge of the issues. One must appreciate that an 18-year-old has had an awareness of the world (intellectual awareness) for only a very short time — from age 14 to 15. One cannot catch up or obtain the experience (that in truth takes a lifetime to attain) in three years (from 18 to 21 years). The frontal lobes of an 18 to 20-year old are still quite immature and they are highly prone to propaganda. During the Korean War, according to Dr. Hunter, the world-renowned expert on brainwashing techniques used on our soldiers, the communist mind-manipulators concentrated their efforts only on the soldiers under age 30, because they knew they were the ones most susceptible to brainwashing techniques. Older soldiers easily saw through the propaganda. The is why the Left fought so hard for the 18 to 20-year old vote.
It is also instructive that the Left fought equally hard for electronic voting, knowing that it would be quite easy to electronically manipulate the voting machines to register only their candidate, no matter what button one pushes (this is shown on a YouTube video). An expert in this technology testified to this and gave a shocking demonstration as to how it worked. This election is so vital to the Left they will use all methods. — Russell L. Blaylock, MD
