Along with Julian Assange, the 4th Estate is now Utterly Gone. How Media and Propaganda Control What We Think.

Through the words of others who know well what they say, it is easy to learn and understand how "they" control our minds using propaganda and the media. "They" have been doing it for a very long time ... they know well what they do.

Julian Assange tried his best by releasing paramount evidence to enlighten the people with truth. Thank you Julian, you did reveal vital truth; but reading the quotes below makes it now seem that any efforts to reveal the truth to enlighten the people were in vain ... The truth stood no chance to enlighten the land of the dumbed down.

......

"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar weekly salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes." John Swinton, a toast before the New York Press Club in 1953. Called by his peers "The Dean of his Profession", was the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times.

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the WORLD if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National auto determination practiced in past centuries"--David Rockefeller in an address to a Trilateral Commission meeting in June of 1991

"We in the press like to say we're honest brokers of information and it's just not true. The press does have an agenda." Bernard Goldberg, as quoted by Harry Stein in the June 13-19, 1992 TV Guide.

"In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press....They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. "An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers." - U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway, THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD FEBRUARY 9, 1917 - PAGE 2947 & PAGE 2948.

"Instead of three competing television networks called NBC, CBS, and ABC, what we really have is the Rockefeller Broadcasting Company, the Rockefeller Broadcasting System, and the Rockefeller Broadcasting Consortium." -Gary Allen, "The Rockefeller File," 1976

"We know in the not too distant future, a half dozen corporations are going to control the media. We took this step (merger) to ensure we were one of them"--Time Warner spokesperson.
