The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.
Public information, the news we rely on to learn about what’s happening in the world, to learn about one another, is in the hands of commercial enterprises.
The people that own the media would be much happier if we were a nation of mindless consumers rather than a nation of informed active citizens.
