The Big Corporation that has control over the media is that people would not do anything as it is. The technology will do all things and will be lazy and let it control us slowly over time. The corporations telll us what the problem is but they have a hidden agenda as to poison the human mind. it tells us what they see in public but keeps the actual truth classified

6 media giants control 90% of what we see, listen,and watch i think it is a serious objective that people need to look at . Those company control and only show us what they believe is ''important.'' Many news channel always say the same exact lines like other news channels i see something that does not seem right such as what if they wanted to talk about something different?what if they wanted to state it using different words ? This topic is important i think us citizens need to call the shots now and then.

these articles are saying that people are getting dumber by the day. we don't realize that the news itself are just repeating stories. they say the exact same thing over and over again. its like they don't even have news. they just copy from other sites. we cant even answer 8th grade questions because were believed to be idiots.

i agree with you gaby.The tv news dont even know what to say anymore. They repeat there selves so much

From the articles I read and videos I watch it show's how people in power control what we watch. Which I believe is true because every news station say the same thing. Which shows someone or a company is feeding the people information.

Big businesses have taken over the the media and other facets of our society. They buy into smaller companies and disguise themselves to seem like multiple companies to improve their profits. They are systematically using this method to control our minds and influence our decisions.

There are six companys that control ninety percent of Americas media. These companys have control over most things we are entertained by on television, newspaper, radio, and movies. With them in control of the information we hear as a community they control the knowledge we learn from technology.

The media gives people information that they want you to hear or see.They only give part of the story and not what really happen. The media has been doing this for years and people fail to realize that the television has brainwashed alot of people through out the world to advertise and promote products that you might not even want but will trick you into buying it even though you dont need it. its called business.

For example,i used to sell heels to people around the hood to make money and there was a cute female walking by wearing a yellow dress and i had some shoes that would match her outfit and i said "Hey ma'am how are you doing today, would you like me to interest you in some shoes today" and she goes "OH sorry i already bought six pairs yesterday." but i played it off smart and said "look at this right here beautiful,these heels right here would go excellent with your dress that you have on right now,just imagine how good you would look in these shoes right here" she thought about it and she smiled and said the two magic words "How Much?"...thats how you reel in customers to buy things they dont want/need.

Media really does have power , the power of making us believe what ever they say because we trust and believe most of the stuff we see. We listen to the people in power like for example here we listen to what the news and president as we feel safe with what they say because they are smart and know the right thing to do. But at times maybe not belive everything to show that we have knoledge and dont fall for everything they say.
4/21/2015 08:02:26 am
ifeel like if they keep using technology for a tool we are going to keep on depend on it like its really going to help us and were going to start being lazy to do stuff for our selfs so we our going to depend on technology to do it for us

The majority of the big companies have taken over what we see and little do people realize that we are being repeated over and over again the same thing. which makes them think we are unable to face reality.
4/22/2015 03:47:18 am
well what i think is that companies and technology is taking over and that people don't realize it. were gonna end up depending on technology for a long time. the reason why is because technology are doing things we never knew it can do. media only gives us part of the story not the full story it tells us what happening and they lie to us about things they don't want us to know

I believe that having 6 companies to control 90% of what we watch, read, and listen to is wrong. This is a serious subject because these big companies are only showing us what they want us to know and what they this is truly important. an example of this is when you watch news channels, they all broadcast the same stuff. I think this is wrong because it's their way of controlling our minds. In other words the big companies are brainwashing us, to believe whatever they believe is true.

We take what ever information is given to us by social media not knowing that 90% comes from the same 6 companies. We often think that different channels provide us with different information. In reality they are all similar and inform us about the same thing. We get fed by all the information they give us and never really question it. Some of the news is irrelevant to our society but since it is projected to us we still listen to it. Most of the actual important news is only given by some companies who aren't owned by bigger companies. Those are the ones we don't pay much attention too because they may not be very popular.

Technology is being used everywhere and all Companies are ordered to read lines and say the same thing

I believe that big companies are the once the control most of the things on tv and out side tv to. I mean why can people see that big companies are the once that pick what goes on the media for us to see. big companies use media to control people and make them do whatever they want.big companies do this because people do what ever they see on the media for example teens now in days try to copy what ever they see famous people doing on tv.

Considering that most of us watch television and that the media is controlled by 6 major business companies, big businesses such as Disney and Time Warner have a huge control on media and because of that they have a huge control on society itself. This isn't such a good thing since because those companies are pretty much what determine what's cool in society or what's boring lame and so on. So if they wanted they could making it so talking professional is boring and looking at people get hurt is fun.

In the article These 6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America, imply that there are many corporations are owning almost everything. For example, it shows how in 1983 50 companies owned American media and in 2011 6 companies own the same 90% as in 1983. In other words, these companies are becoming more powerful with lots of money. Therefore, these companies know what we do in the internet which can be scary for everyone because everyone uses the internet.

well since 90% of television is owned by 6 big major companies it proves that they have more control.so they only show us or inform us about the things they want us to know not about the real things and they all basically all tell us the same thing.all the knowledge we know comes from tecnology so more people are getting dumber there going to depend on tecnology to much these days.

I think big businesses are in control of major media groups. This is problematic because the news will be biased to whatever the owner wants. If they think Black males are dangerous then they will continue to show images of scary Black men to further push that image. The scary part is people are failing to realize what is going on and slowly but surely these companies are merging and creating super companies.
