We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Flashback: Top Journalist Exposes How Intelligence Agencies Control Western Media

Click here to access article by Steven MacMillan from New Eastern Outlook.

Although MacMillan mostly resurrects a 2014 report (I posted articles, see this and this.) by the German journalist Udo Ulfkotte to make his point about the infiltration of intelligence agencies in mainstream newsrooms, it must be stressed again and again.

While writing a commentary last year about China's President Xi and his visit to the Seattle area, I discovered that one of the major local TV stations in the Seattle area is owned by Tegna corporation located in McLean, VA.
This TV station, like all the other local stations, is not locally owned, instead owned by Tegna corporation based in McLean, VA. Maybe it's only a coincidence, but CIA also has offices there in addition to nearby Langley where CIA headquarters are located. 
Because the news coverage provided by all major network corporations reveals striking similarities, I think there are reasonable grounds to suspect that the coverage, especially regarding foreign affairs, is carefully managed by the CIA or some other intelligence propaganda agency.
