Control of our nation’s press, leads to despotism!

“Despotism”

The following U. S. video, from about 1945, shows one how to identify despotism in one’s community/country. 

“Avoid the comfortable idea that the mere FORM of government can, of itself, safeguard a nation against despotism.  Germany, under President Hindenburg was a REPUBLIC, and yet, in this Republic, an aggressive despotism took route and flourished under Adolph Hitler.”

In 1983, 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the U.S.  By 2004, control of the major media machine dropped to only 5 corporations:  Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch’s News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, and Viacom (formerly CBS), with General Electric’s NBC as a close sixth.

Take Back the Media is a cooperative project by progressive American citizens. We are dismayed at the pro-government, pro-corporate bias shown by American media, and we intend to do something about it. Many American share our views on how the media promotes a pro-war, pro-big corporation agenda, and our numbers are growing every day.
