Americans Frustrated With Corporate - Controlled U.S. Media

Then stop watching it; Americans need to tune out Obama/CIA mouthpieces

Americans are frustrated with the mainstream media in the United States which is controlled by big corporations, a political commentator in New York says. 
 
 
"Mainstream media" scum will burn for their crimes
“Clearly there’s been a major shift in the media in the United States, fewer companies in control, less diverse coverage in many respects, more focus on headline celebrities, personalities and partisan issues than in depth features or efforts to really explain the world to the public,” said Danny Schechter, an editor of Mediachannel.org.

“There’s also a tremendous push-back to the media. Right now more people are getting news from online sources than traditional sources, in fact newspapers are closing, magazines can’t figure out how to stay,” Schechter said.

“So you have a major shift taking place in the media and lot of it is fueled by dissatisfaction and frustration but people don’t know what they can do really to improve it because the corporate control is so thick over most media outlets that it’s hard to envision how the voice of the public can be heard,” he added. 
 
 
Protesters across the United States marched against the mainstream media on Saturday, saying the American people deserve “the truth”.

Demonstrators targeted the headquarters of media giants like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and FOX News, decrying their narrow coverage of world affairs.

The activist groups that organized the March Against Mainstream Media (MAMM) also challenged the mainstream media to cover the protests. 
 
 
The protests are “an attack against the credibility of the mainstream media in an attempt to steer its viewers away from its lies and towards alternative media sources,” the organizers said on their website.

“The United States Mainstream Media is the #1 tool used against the American people and we have to get the mass public to turn away from this garbage once and for all and actually start thinking for ourselves,” they added.


Americans' distrust in the media hit a new high last year as a Gallup poll last September revealed 60 percent of the American public had little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.
