The media can be used for or against us. 

A few companies own everything. We have 

the illusion of inclusion and the illusion

 of choice.


Media consolidation has been on a fast 

march over the last 30 years. In 1983, 

50 companies owned 90% 

of American media.

Six corporations own 90% 


of news media companies


 in America. 



News Corp, Disney, Viacom, 


Time Warner, CBS and Comcast 


owns 90% of the TV stations, radio stations, 


movies, magazines and newspapers that 


277 million Americans 


rely on for news and entertainment.


Comcast has replaced General Electric as one 


of the six corporations that control 90% of 


the media.



Over the last 30 years, Congress and the FCC 


have largely deregulated the media industry. The


 number of television stations that one company 


can own jumped from seven to 12 in 1985. The 


FCC also stopped enforcing the Fairness 


Doctrine, it dropped requirements for a minimum 


amount of non-entertainment programming, and it


 lifted limits on the amount of advertising that 


could be broadcast in one hour. Those changes 


made it easier and more profitable for corporations 


to own more media properties.

“Whoever controls the 


media, controls the mind.”


― Jim Morrison

Mind control and Satanism is also known as 


manipulation, brainwashing, coercive persuasion


 and control, changing people's beliefs and behaviors,


malignant use of group dynamics, and many others. 

 The broadcast media can easily access billions 


of people and quickly get their messages out to 


the masses. 


*To broadcast is to scatter, sow, cast or send 


out, to cause something to be known over a 


considerable area or by many people.



The media is not only a source of knowledge and 


information about what is happening in the world... 


it can be a manipulative system of influence that 


can distort perception, modify, disrupt, compromise 


a person's beliefs, decisions, behaviors, relationships, 


preferences, etc.  



Tel-e-vision 


has its advantages and, unfortunately...


it also has its destructive disadvantages.



With the advancement of technology, many 


aspects in the news, arts, social networking and


communication between people  have improved 


our quality of life. However, the media can 


influence one to do things that are not moral and


 upright. The media affects people in varied ways, 


some of which are good while others are not.


We humans can be manipulatable species where 

the media feeds off this ever-growing trait that 

lies within us all. 

“Whoever controls the 


media, controls the mind.”

The global reach of television has the potential 


to make a positive or negative impact on people's 


lives.

Media can be used as a tool 


to manipulate, brainwash, and


 indoctrinate the vulnerable.

Program/programme means 


to set, schedule or regulate.

Television is programming unsuspecting individuals


 with all kinds of lies. The rulers of this world, Satan 


and his henchmen, are telling-a-vision, through 


television, radio, newspapers, magazines etc. Satan 


is using mind controlling programming to manipulate 


peopleMedia is blatantly and subliminally 


programming our minds as we watch, read, and 


listen. 



Some people are way too comfortable being 


told what is real and what is not. They don't even 


question what is being programmed/instilled into 


the mind, or how it has negatively influenced the 


behavior of vast numbers of people

A critical thinker rarely takes things at face value. 


They like to analyze and evaluate all sources of 


information before coming to a decision.


Critical thinking is an essential skill, especially 


in an age of fake news and misinformation. We


 need to question sources and make sure the 


information we take in is valid. 



Let us not allow the media to brainwash us, so 

much so that we have no autonomy over ourselves 

and cannot think critically or independently.
Media has many effects on the consumer and, as 

a whole, is dumbing down society by manipulating

 and/or limiting the thoroughness of information 

presented.
Mindless Dumbing down

According to Wikipedia, dumbing down is 

the deliberate over-simplification of intellectual 

content in education, literature, and cinema, news,

 video games, and culture. 


Originated in 1933, the term "dumbing down"

 was movie-business slang, used by screenplay

 writers, meaning: "(to) revise so as to appeal

 to those of little education or intelligence". 

(1) Dumbing-down varies according to subject 

matter, and usually involves the diminishment 

of critical thought by undermining standard

 language and learning standards; thus trivializing 

academic standards, culture, and meaningful

 information, as in the case of popular culture.

Television has long been criticized for its potential 


impact on children. Media exposure can positively


 or negatively influence a child's cognitive 


development and academic achievement.



We must exercise the influence and discipline


 that God intended for us as parents. We 


should monitor how much time our children


spend watching TV and be aware of what


 programs they are watching. 



We need to seek out beneficial programs that 


provide teaching opportunities that we want our 


children to see, learn from, and imitate.



We need to research reputable broadcast 


outlets making sure that the quality and 


content of television programs are well-


designed, age-appropriate, and are programs 


designed around an educational curriculum.


We owe this to our youth.

Broadcasters have often demonstrated their power to


influence viewers, either consciously through slanted


 political commentary, or subtly, by portraying


 controversial issues, i.e., the treatment of certain people,


 civil liberties, the unflattering, contradictory, shallow  


light cast upon certain people and situations as 


socially acceptable.



 The symbiotic nature of television and culture is 


exemplified in every broadcast, from family sitcoms 


to serious news reports.

Research shows that exposure to lies and negative


programming increases the risk of aggressive behavior


and desensitizes people to lies and violence.


Very little seems to be censored in television. 


The anonymity of the internet and the easy access 


to all sorts of despicable pornography is devilish. 



One can easily find excessive violence


 and savagery in some of the video games.


The crassness of some of the present-day music


 extols self gratification and sexual promiscuity. 


With cell phones... anything goes.



All of these devices may go to any extreme 


to capture the attention of viewers, listeners, and 


readers. Sadly, they all play a role in our moral 


decline. 



Far too many people are acting as if they


can no longer tell the difference between good


 and evil.



Some have purposely waged 


an all-out assault on morals, values,


and common sense.

“Whoever controls the 


media, controls the mind.”


As we strive to become more


enlightened human beings, we 


must intentionally 


seek God first 


and eliminate everything that 


tends to make the human mind 


a dependent weakling.

The dumbing down is usually applied as a derogatory term that refers to the simplifying of a subject towards the lowest common denominator. Americans consume large amounts of media. The average American spends half or their day watching hours of television, or listening to some sort of mass media.
