In 2021 if you consider yourself a media reform activist and you don’t know who Nicholas Johnson is, now would be the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Watch this video in its entirety and you will be armed with a better understanding going forward into 2021 and beyond how the mass media, owned by corporations, controls most of the information we receive and prevents citizens from knowing what is really going on.
This lecture from 1971, while Johnson was an FCC Commissioner, is every bit as relevant now as then. You will enjoy quite a bit of biting sarcasm and humor as your consciousness is raised about how the media affects our thinking without us really knowing it, how the truth is censored and what we can do about it. Check out his YouTube channel and blog FromDC2Iowa.
Enjoy and Happy New Year from Blog for Iowa!
