Television commercial from the 1950s advertising that more doctors smoked Camel cigarettes than other other brand.

The current “war against the Coronavirus” is primarily an information war, with the corporate media putting forth a unified message they want the public to believe, and any efforts to present alternative information is vigorously opposed and ridiculed.

Six major companies own almost all of the media outlets in the U.S., including TV, print, and Internet, which includes video games.

WebFX documented this a few years back with an infographic. The Infographic is a bit dated, as AT&T bought Time Warner in 2018, for example, which just led to further consolidation of the media giants.

In modern America, it feels like you have an unlimited variety of entertainment and media options right at your fingertips.

Television, film, and video game companies seem to come out of the woodwork in today’s startup-centric economy. Who knows what they’ll do next? But while it may seem like you have limitless options, most of the media you consume is owned by one of six companies. These six media companies are known as The Big 6.

While independent media outlets still exist (and there are a lot of them), the major outlets are almost all owned by these six conglomerates. To be clear, “media” in this context does not refer just to news outlets — it refers to any medium that controls the distribution of information. So here, “media” includes 24-hour news stations, newspapers, publishing houses, Internet utilities, and even video game developers.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at each of The Big 6, who control them, and what they own.

Walter Cronkite was one of the most famous TV journalists and perhaps one of the most trusted men in America in the 1960s and 1970s. He read the news on the CBS TV network each evening Monday through Friday from 1962 through 1981.

This is what Walter Cronkite wrote in the introduction to the 1996 book Censored – The News That Didn’t Make the News- And Why, by Carl Jensen. Walter Cronkite wrote:

A handful of us determine what will be on the evening news broadcasts, or, for that matter, in the New York Times or Washington Post or Wall Street Journal…. Indeed it is a handful of us with this awesome power… a strongly editorial power.

…we must decide which news items out of hundreds available we are going to expose that day. And those [news stories] available to us already have been culled and re-culled by persons far outside our control.

Late night comedian Conan O’Brien produced some clips some years ago that showed how these corporate media companies control the narrative on your local and national news stations to broadcast a unified message, showing that very little, if any, real investigative reporting was being done.

Using “Medical” Doctors to Sell Products or Ideas – Appeal to Authority

As I reported recently (Doctors vs. Doctors: Who’s Telling the Truth?), there is a huge difference between medical doctors out on the frontlines actually treating patients, and political or TV doctors who do not actually treat patients, but use their American-accepted status symbol of authority to try and convince the masses to believe what the Corporate Media companies, and their sponsors, want you to believe.

Today, the main sponsors of the six largest media corporations are pharmaceutical companies.

But some 60 years ago, those sponsors were mainly the tobacco industry.

Here are some “blasts from the past” that most of our readers are probably too young to remember.

If any of these gems from YouTube disappear, let us know, and we will get them back up on another platform.

Develop Your Own Newsfeed!

I previously published an article showing how one can beat Internet Censorship and develop your own newsfeed:

How to Beat Internet Censorship and Create Your Own Newsfeed

As Editor of Health Impact News, I am going to update this article and publish my own current newsfeed, with the list of RSS links.

Please note this is a constant developing newsfeed, and the presence of a publication in my newsfeed does NOT mean I endorse that publication.

As an editor, I want to be informed about ALL sides of an issue, even those I do not agree with, or maybe only partially agree with, etc. So you will see some “left-leaning,” some “right-leaning,” and some “libertarian-leaning” sources, along with some that do not fit any particular category and just practice good journalism.

Many of these sources have been banned by Big Tech in places like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

There are not many corporate sites in my newsfeed, because you can get all of those in one place:

If you keep Google News open in a tab in your browser and refresh throughout the day, you see exactly what the corporate media’s main message is that day, which is primarily the Liberal Left, with a few Fox News stories thrown in from time to time to make them look “balanced.”

I have found over the past couple of years that Google particularly likes the Washington Post, now owned by their fellow Technocrat, Jeff Bezos, founder of, and who today is rumored to be interested in buying CNN.

With that said, here is the list of RSS feeds currently in my own, custom newsfeed (in alphabetical order) that can be loaded into any RSS feed reader where you will get their articles or videos into your RSS feeder almost as soon as they are published:
