How Corporations Control the Populace

Using the evidence supplied by my three sources I can safely say that my thesis is correct. Instead of the government controlling us through the news it is the corporations that control us through the news. The first source from businessinsider.com confirms that only six huge corporations control almost all of the media and that includes the news, they control at least 90% of it an it's all for one goal: to make more money. The second source from Think Tank confirms that corporations control the news and use it control people and make them view them in a more positive light, they also keep harmful information from people that could make the public not like them. My third and final source from Shadows of Liberty confirms that corporations control the people of the US by controlling the information that gets to them.
