    What is the total reach of the six media conglomerates ?

Now we know that six mega corporations own most media.

These 6 corporations control 90% of the media outlets in America. The illusion of choice and objectivity

The question I have is this:
Do we know (has anyone estimated the viewership numbers) what is the total audience reach of the news outlets alone owned by these six ? – Keeping in mind that all of these corporations are news outlets (some are movie studios, etc).

Is there a recent viewership tally ?

All part or partly members of the Trusted News Initiative. TNI includes the BBC, Guardian, News international and so many others. The BBC is apparently paid for by us the users,  through license fee (£140/pa)  yet accepts $6 million pa from the Bill and Malinda Gates Foundation ( a fact that the British public are completely unaware of) All the other members of the TNI have a significant shareholding from Blackrock and/or Vanguard. I believe Chris would class this as capture. I tend to agree. To quote TE Lawrence ( Peter O’Toole, for those unacquainted ) ” The printing press is the greatest weapon in the armoury of the modern commander”.

    The answer is in the question.

How much of the remaining 10% is private counterintelligence on the payroll of those big 6? How many who aren’t have guests or get their information from those who are?

Jacobin article on corporate spies:

Many multinational corporations now have their own global security divisions, which rival the intelligence agencies of many countries. To staff these divisions, companies like Amazon, Coca Cola, Walmart, McDonald’s, and Monsanto all dip into the government-trained surveillance expert pool. Walmart’s intelligence unit, for example, which employs four hundred people, is staffed largely by former government intelligence operatives and is under the direction of a former FBI agent. The unit also works with weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin to monitor worker activity, while Lockheed Martin is, in turn, known to team up with the FBI, CIA, and NSA on surveillance operations.

Ultimately we’re not just looking at a public-private sector revolving door. We’re looking at a single nebulous security apparatus, which is at the service of both the US government and multinational corporations, sometimes simultaneously.

Essentially I was asking a numbers question.

Out of 330million Americans how many are captured by these six companies to shape their worldview ? 100 million ? something else ?

I keep seeing this meme about Joe Rogan having more viewership than CNN, but it doesn’t make sense. How come we see so many robots on the streets.

@Primary Care_MD

Given the global coordination that we see today, the Intel agencies must be coordinating across all nations of the UN. Do we have any information about who is instructing those Intel agencies about their missions ? Who is the Architect of the narrative they follow ?

There must be a think-tank they follow blindly and trust unconditionally.

Basically who is it that brainwashes and hypnotizes the Intel agencies themselves ?
