An editor of Media Lens tackles the issue of propaganda served to us by our media corporations. It's clear to me, and hopefully it is clear to you, that the capitalist ruling classes have always selected news and news reporters to support their interests of profits and power. But this type of propaganda has evolved since the fascist capitalists took over the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire beginning in Britain with the Thacherites and in the USA beginning with the Reagan administration, both of which permitted Zionists to infiltrate key government posts.
This evolution led to the outright control of all media corporations by the CIA which were ordered to do so by their masters in the Deep State. Instead of being subject to mere advertising pressures from industrial and other commercial corporations, media corporations are now under the direct control of the Deep State as evident in the way they monolithically report the news which is filled with obvious propaganda and repeat certain themes consistently over time. The limits of dissenting views have become much narrower since the fascist capitalists, aka "neocons", "ziocons", etc, have infiltrated key areas of our government and media corporations. As I wrote in the previous link:
How this secretive complex of organizations mediate and operationalize their decisions remains a mystery. However, it must be understood that the Deep State controls all significant institutions using bribes, threats, perks, career advancements, etc., and especially rewards those who demonstrate and promote the approved themes of indoctrination and Empire propaganda.
Most American intellectuals and academics refuse to recognize this version of the Deep State as defined by me. They have either been trained not to see it due to many years of indoctrination by US universities or they deliberately avoid such a meaning because harm will come to their careers.
