RE: WikiLeaks Exposes How Council on Foreign Relations Controls Most All Mainstream Media—Time to Switch to Steemit
I love your posts they are great to read and keep me up to date on current news topics that aren't necessarily covered in mainstream media. As for the media, it has been well known for the last couple years how corrupt the media corporations have become as they will post stories and publish articles that push their own agenda. My eye opening experience was this last election as the major news media had Hilary Clinton winning the election by 10 to 12% and made it seem like it would be a landslide victory. Well they were wrong and because of that made me start to question their reliability. It would be great to have checks and balances on media organizations as they have a lot of influence on the world and its beliefs and if they are pushing ideas that are incorrect or only furthering their own agendas it is wrong as they should be as unbiased for us readers and consumers to make our own opinions. It will be interesting to see how cryptocurrencies might change the media world as there are cryptos out there specifically designed to change this and create a consensus based platform where people can validate news if it is real or flag it if it is fake. I would love to see laws be created to punish those agencies that push fake news to influence the public but I don't see something like that being able to have enough influence to change the current status.
