WHO OWNS THE MEDIA?

Not noted in the below article, but certainly very important is that Comcast Corporation has a majority share in NBC Universal.  Comcast had at one time made a bid to buy Walt Disney for 66 billion that was not accepted. Comcast is the largest cable operator, home Internet service provider, and third largest home telephone service provider in the United States, providing cable television, broadband Internet, telephone service and home security [in some areas] to both residential and commercial customers in 40 states and the District of Columbia.(Wikipedia)
Interestingly, Obama and Comcast CEO Brian Roberts spent vacation time together in August 2011. That has to make you feel warm and fuzzy. -W.E.

These six corporations,  Time Warner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., CBS Corporation and NBC Universal are responsible for countless lies, propaganda pieces, death, and the ultimate dumbing down of America.
When you take even a small look at the companies that run under the six corporations listed above, a clear pictures emerges.
