In 1987, Ronald Reagan repealed an act which stated that a news company must speak the truth if it wants to act as a news agency. Fox News is not even allowed to set up shop in Canada because they still have this law there. This is obviously another complete slap in the face of democracy, because it allows the rich to use the media as a lying propaganda machine, which it basically is in the United States. I believe in the same breath Reagan had also removed the limitation whereby a media company is allowed a maximum 30% control of the market. Now there are companies in the US where a single one owns all the radio, newspapers, TV and so forth in a single city. This is obviously extremely dangerous and it shows how asleep people are in the US that they don't even know about this or do not realise that this is very dangerous. It gives way too much power to the corporations and the rich. Like one of the Rothchild's once said: "To control the population you need to control the flow of information." Which is obviously why around 1820 they purchased Reuters, and I believe later also AP. People, please wake up.
