Apropos of Tucker’s musings about the Media as an instrument of control, I found the following analysis very insightful. I especially appreciated the author’s trip down memory lane, reminding us what the media was like in previous decades, even as recently as 2018, compared to today.

They are now more than ever dependent on “advertising” dollars from government agencies, NGOs, and corporations who clearly aren’t getting anything for their investment other than influence over the messaging.

Well worth a read:
