Kinsey's quantitative research and his numbers, were a perfect fit for Rockefeller to utilize the mass media to 'shape public attitudes and conduct.' Attitudes were changed through mass communications, which caused a rejection of chastity, self control and moral public governance, as well as increased illicit sexual conduct. 'Social management' of this sort was nothing less for Rockefeller than changing America's way of life, by among other things altering what Kinsey would call 'breeding patterns' along an evolutionary or animalistic view of human sexual conduct.
Our system works much differently and much more effectively [than the Communist system]. It's a privatized system of propaganda, including the media, journals of opinion and in general including the broad participation of the articulate intelligentsia, the educated part of the population. The more articulate element of those groups, the ones who have access to the media, including the intellectual journals, and who essentially control the educational apparatus, should properly be referred to as a class of 'commisars.' That's their essential function: to design, propagate and create a system of doctrines and beliefs which will undermine independent thought and prevent understanding and analysis of institutional structures and their functions.
In 1994 a viewer of Channel 11 in Rome, Georgia, saw a rapid flash of light while viewing reruns of the Batman television series. Since he had been recording the show on his VCR, he freeze framed the moment of the flash, only to find out that a scene of protestors with "Keep Abortion Legal" signs had been inserted into the program.
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 salaries for similar things, and any of you would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If 1 allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.
The business of journalists 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 of rich men behind the scenes. We are 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.
Media management does not always have to be so dramatic. Simple distraction—the "circuses" part of the historic "bread and circuses" formula—is another effective technique. The dissemination of entertainment—"popular culture"—and useless factoids has channeled public attention away from far more important issues such as poverty, human rights abuses, the equitable distribution of the wealth of the world, true political representation for the vast majority of humans— and media control by the elite. This is one of the main functions of the television, which is in essence a propaganda box spewing out the "positive" drug-like reinforcements of sex, violence, and simulated social interaction.
All three major American television networks were offspring of RCA.
The single factor that most enables control of the media and its use as a tool of propaganda is monopolistic ownership. Ninety-eight percent of the 1,700 daily newspapers in America are owned by fewer than 15 corporations, with Time, Inc. taking in about 40% of the total revenues. The three major TV networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC still have the majority of the television watching audience.
All three major television networks came as spin-offs from RCA, especially the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), which was closely followed by the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) in 1951. The third big television network was Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), which like its sister companies, was, and still is, dominated by British intelligence. William Paley was trained in mass brainwashing techniques at the Tavistock Institute prior to being certified as qualified to head CBS.
Imagine the power you have to control events when you control all these companies and the governments making decisions affecting those companies. Add to that the control of the media via organizations like the BBC, the Reuters news agency, Hollinger Inc., Thomson, News Corporation, Pearson, Reed Elsevier, The Washington Post, New York Times, NBC, CBS, ABC, etc, etc... and you control the world. More than that, the people don’t know this is happening and therefore you can continue indefinitely without challenge or exposure.
