With the advent of the popularity of television in the 1930s and 1940s,
for the first time in history, the banksters had an instrument through which
the masses could be controlled effectively, immediately, and effortlessly.
British author, John Hamer says, “Television is by far the most devastating
brainwashing device ever unleashed upon humanity.”

Ironically, the BBC, upon which Orwell modelled his ‘Ministry of Truth,’ became one of the pioneers of television, the ultimate newspeak/doublespeak medium.
When Orwell died in January 1950, there were only 100,000 TVs in Britain and 5 million in the United States. Today, there are almost as many TVs as there are people in the western world.
Most people do not realize that when they turn on the television in their home, what they see as a constant flow of images is actually flickering and although we do not recognize this consciously, the repetitive pattern of flickering images creates a state that is similar to hypnosis in the television viewer.
Studies by researcher Dr. Herbert Krugman have shown that within 30 seconds of television viewing, brain waves switch from predominantly beta waves, indicating alert and conscious attention, to predominantly alpha waves, indicating an unfocussed yet receptive lack of attention. The brain’s left hemisphere, which processes information logically and analytically, tunes-out whilst a person is watching TV, whilst the right hemisphere of the brain, which processes information emotionally and non-critically, is allowed to function without hindrance.
Due to this phenomenon, television transmits information, which is not actively recognized at the time of exposure, much like hypnosis and therefore when viewing TV, we do not consciously rationalize the information at the time of transmission and we become more open and suggestible. Because of this passive, hypnosis-like viewing of television, as well as its predominance in our homes, television is one of the most powerful tools of control, today.

As of 2015, only five companies controlled all of the major media outlets (of all forms) in the United States.
The media giants work hand-and-glove with our bankster-controlled governments and corporations to disseminate carefully planned messages. They instruct us in what to think, what to worry about, what to laugh at and what to be scared of and have completely ‘sold’ the public on the idea of the newscaster being an extension of the family, a trusted father-figure who encourages the acceptance of the information being presented as true and accurate.
In 2012, the Pentagon spent more than $3 billion compensating major media outlets for disseminating their ‘public relations’ messages which are deceptively presented to the television viewer as news, produced by the television station, not as propaganda from the Pentagon. In the same year, pharmaceutical companies paid television outlets more than $5 billion for advertising, which included Video News Releases (VNRs,) specially tailored pieces that appeared within the nightly news disguised as being the result of research by the local stations. No other industrialised nation in the world even allows drug ads on television, let alone these cleverly disguised VNRs hidden within the ‘news.’…
