Nearly all of the top US media outlets are owned by rich billionaires. So we get Billionaire News like Bloomberg News or the NYT or WP or all the Murdoch outlets plus all the major TV stations. They quietly kill any news that might harm their super-rich status. The latest news to be blacked out here in the US is the story broken by a Washington, DC group of investigators. They pried into the private stashes of the super rich that are parked in ‘banks’ on islands owned by the Queen of England. Continue reading
