Some 80 years ago, there was only NY Times. So if you can control NY Times, then you can control all the people. Then 50 years ago, there were ABC, NBC, and CBS. Again, if you can control the big three, and later, CNN, you will also control all the people. But not any more, now comes the internet. How can you control the internet? Everyone can learn the truth in the first hour. This is the true freedom. You can fool some people for some time, but you can't fool all the people all the time.
And who's to say who is really telling the truth? The internet has probably 10 times the amount of untruth as it does truth. And as far as newspapers go, it's usually the truth as told by some bias journalist. Nobody really knows, it's just what they were told.
even you can not depend upon internet also ... there are thousands of sites contradicting each other. On which will you rely? and Its not abt America, it happens every where. Its politics... you have to do all these things. and everyone does. AW what were you trying to say

And in many other countries there is only one newspaper and it is controlled by the goverment. And one TV station controlled by the government.
And in some countries you will have to obtain special permission from government to buy a new TV or even a new pair of shoes. Citizens are not allowed to buy more than two pairs a year - one pair for winter and one for summer!
