Rupert, 5 friends control 90% of news

In 1983, 50 companies gave Americans their news.

Today, SIX corporations and the billionaires who control them provide 90% of the news, including Fox News’ “fair and balanced” drivel from Rupert Murdoch’s kingdom.

If this doesn’t scare the pants off you, then you don’t care about democracy.

The only thing that hasn’t escaped the clutches of the plutocracy is the social media, where the word gets out without being filtered by a few billionaires’ agendas.

Within minutes after something newsworthy happens, it’s all over social media.

The billionaires probably are working on a way to control Facebook and Twitter posts.

80 billionaires have as much wealth as half the people on Earth combined.

This can’t be good for democracy. Kings never had it so good.

And some people want to elect a trash-talking billionaire as the next President. So he can have his 6 friends join him in eviscerating what's left of the middle class.
