The CIA controls the US media and has done so since the 1920s when Allen Dulles was both at the same time the Director of the CIA and the Director of the Council on Foreign Relations (which is the shadow government that runs this country).
The CIA/CFR usurpers control the media though the media's membership in the Council on Foreign Relations where all major US media outlets are corporate members of the CFR.
Why haven't you heard about this?
Well, duh. (hint: the CIA doesn't want you to hear about it and they control the people who keep the info from you).
Yes, they are willing partners. Even Fox News is a member of the CFR (which is devoted to one world government).
