Media CEO's sit on a ton of subsidized company boards and hold substantial stock of mega corps like banks and defense companies.
Also many companies advertise through commercials on the channels and those companies have a vested interest in keeping the subsidies/regulations flowing..(ie Kraft foods)
just look at warren buffet and berkshire hathaways subsidiary's
or fred hassan who is a former CEO of time warner who still sits on the board.
"Hassan joined Pharmacia & Upjohn in May 1997 as chief executive officer and in February 2001 he was named Chairman of the Board of Pharmacia after the merger with Monsanto Company."
or jeff zucker, recent CEO of CNN and him being vice chairman of GE
(any wonder why the media isn't reporting that GE paid NO TAXES for years)
Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.
