Amy Goodman about US media and the "Silenced Majority"

“The media can be the greatest force for peace on earth. Instead it is wielded as a weapon of war”, says Amy Goodman. Critics of war and dissenting opinions are filtered out in the mainstream press. The corporate media would often just reenforce the corporate consensus of corporations together with the well funded politicians, who are funded by those very corporations. This would lead to a narrowing of points of views in the US. “I talk about the silenced majority, because those who are opposed to war, those who are opposed to torture, who are deeply concerned about poverty and corporate control are not a fringe minority. Not even a silent majority, but the silenced majority. Silenced by the corporate media, which is why we have to take it back.”
