I can't believe some of you are so naive as to not understand how the media is controlled, its been like that since the Reagan years. All mainstream media stations, publications, programs, etc are owned by just a handful of corporations, so basically the entire media system is answerable to just a small group of people at the top. The media cannot say anything bad about these people or their corporations because they will lose their jobs. Any news that's not of the local variety is just read off of one source, the Associated Press, so these people are all 'repeaters', not 'reporters'. Total control, the internet is the last bastion of free press in this country.

Oh my God. I was starting to have faith in this site but seeing people comment on the "homosexual agenda"…What is up with you, people??? The message I'm getting is "being gay is wrong". Well, it's not. It's so exasperating to hear talk about trauma and abuse, etc. when it comes to homosexuality. Ever hear of ex-gay groups that traumatized gay people even more (with some leaders ultimately apologizing) and hate crimes against gay people? I think that's more of a concern. To me, it seems like the "unique spin" part was done in the spirit of fun. I don't trust in mainstream media either but I don't think homosexuals or gays should be made fodder for this conspiracy stuff either. If you're thinking that way, then you obviously need to go out and interact with gay people. FYI, their pain doesn't stem from being gay itself, but from the… Read more »
The agenda is that same-sex marriages are that same-sex couples are forced to either adopt children who already exist from the '7 billion' population or become pregnant with medical technology. Similarly, when people possess the right to abort their children, the government who views their populace as their wards also attains a precedent to abort undesirable or otherwise viewed useless members of that society. Isn't it interesting how two topics inevitably underline precedents of population control and otherwise forms of unnatural selection while the general public accepts such precedents as battles of equality. Not only that, the movements attempt to use the government as the go to determinator to resolve the issue that in turn creates segegrated laws/decrees as well as expand upon in a justification to expand and consolidate national interests. Yet, no one seems to notice. In short, the agenda is about accepting population control/unnatural selection through either… Read more »
Gregor Johann Mendel (July 20, 1822[1] – January 6, 1884) was an Austrian[2] scientist and Augustinian friar who gained posthumous fame as the founder of the new science of genetics. (Wikipedia) Thanks for the correction Jazz. But for the rest, did you actually READ the WHOLE post, or just the numbered bullet points? As VC readers, I expected the point of the post to be very clear, but evidently you completely missed the sarcasm before you started casting aspersions. Happy Cynic at very least read enough to partially get the point: the rest of the post (after the “OH WAIT…”) contradicts the bullet points, DELIBERATELY. Very sorry y’all missed that, but that was the point of the post. But just so we are ALL clear: points 1 – 3 are typical responses of folks who don’t believe the media is controlled, but yet spout off at least three of the… Read more »

I agree with you degunk 100%. I read your post and understood it completely.

Wow…how did SO many channels manage to say the exact same thing? Its frankly dumb. They were like controlled zombies going duhhh.. 😐

it is called talking points. Everyday the corporate w***e media get their talking points from their bosses. At Fox News it is called 'the memo' from Murdoch. I am very new to this whole MK-Ultra mind control business. What I do not understand is, and maybe somebody can explain this to me here is why all these people in the music industry are flashing these signs? Are these people communicating with their ilk this way? Then the other thing I do not understand is, why is everyone watching these people? Why do you all watch these shows, video's and all that other garbage that is on the TV? or is that the trance, is that your programming? TV bores my out of my mind. Although I live in the USA I'm not an American and maybe that is what it is. I have not grown up in front of a… Read more »

You can look at that Gumby haircut he use to sport and tell he's controlled by outside forces. Gotta be impossible to get laid with a haircut like that.

VC can you do an article on GaGas performance at the MTV awards? the one where she was chained to the moon.That was really freaky.

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh!

odly enough, the story of an army of cats ridding the park of all the mice- who work for a mouse- has a slight hitler alegory undertone…….yeeeeeah.

I used to work for my college news station. The Associated Press has something called the "AP News Wire" which is a bunch of news stories that you can sort through for the day, and they are already written. News Producers and Reporters usually go through the stories they want during their broadcast- the right thing would've been to re-write the copy rather than being lazy and essentially plagiarizing.

…and the comment section is disabled for the video on Youtube…how cozy is that? 😛

Hey vc I didn't know u had vigilant nation website too. Man ur the best !!!!

We know it must've been a press release or feed but what is amazingly sad is not one of them deviated from the source! Not one!They all read it verbatim! LOL That's control if you don'thave the freedom or least the creativity to change a word or two of what you are fed! They are overpaid parrots! A 10 year old could do what they just did! SMH!!

i remember watching this when it was on the show. everyone was laughing, but i found it very weird? they are just repeating whatever was released to them. i mean, yes we did know that is what newscasters do….it was just very strange.

I love it when some of them get to the; "May be about to" part and try to revise it & then afterwards look like; what the hec did I just say???O.o 😀 😀 😀

Looks faked to me. I mean, come on, it's Conan. Nothing is real on that show. I'm sure they produced all those shots themselves, using sets around the network's studios. It would be easy for a multi-billion dollar corporation to do. It's merely entertainment, though I'm sure the network bosses had their little laugh. I'm certainly not saying the news isn't scripted and controlled. I'm saying that video is a sham, put together by network wanks to make a joke.

Ya, I thought it looked a little strange, as well. All of the different news casts looked really cheap and old. My first thought was also that it was just part of a bit.

This is a lot like what happened this weekend with the Kanye West about his kilt.

here's one article out of several:

http://www.atlasjams.com/2011/11/kanye-west-turns
but it doesnt matter which one you read because they're all practically identical. all attention on the kilt as a sign of being soft & feminine while he's appropriately compared to using fashion shock value like gaga.

in the meantime, there's an interesting symbol pointing to his source of "powe.r"

Yeah you'd think they would mention the big darn baphomat on his shirt but noooo let's talk about the man skirt. The shock had false value, lol.

I liked the part where one of them said something about pushing an envelope.

This is nothing new. Jon Stewart does a smaller-scale version of this same exact bit all throughout the year. We discussed this phenomenon when I took Journalism during my first semester of college. Mass media is lazy, so they let one outlet do all the legwork and just copy off of them ad nauseum. Yeah, it's a sign of collusion and control, but it's also a sign of laziness too.

Wow i mean wow, this sounds so contrived. I am not easily influenced and this one gave me the heebie, jeebies

😮 i can not believe this!!! it is so beautifully realistic in a very sad way…if it where fiction, you wouldn't believe it could be real! …..at least they could've change the opening phrase, geez

First of all love the site! I've been coming for two years now. I just want to clear some things up about broadcast television – I'm a news producer for a major affiliate. When working on a show, anything that isn't local is usually sent down through feeds, the Associated Press, ect. This is a story that would have been sent directly from New York, especially since each story will need accompanying video to go with it. Just as David above said, scripts and info are always sent with video, and it's up to us, the producers, to make it sound better, original, ect. What you're seeing and hearing in that video has nothing to do with media being controlled in and of itself, but lazy and/or overworked producers. On the flip side, it's lazy and/or overworked producers that don't double check sources and information sometimes, aiding those who do… Read more »

I'm glad I was born preprogrammed with a homosexual agenda… Just F off, leave us alone and let us just live our lives. Have you checked the world population recently? We're a good thing.

The born gay/not born gay argument is irrelevant to what I said.

The powers that be use agendas to further their purposes, whether they be the feminism agenda, race agenda, ect. Do you really think airing a gay marriage has anything to do with peace, love, furry bunnies and kumbaya? Lol…they've got you if you do.

Phil~ You say, "leave us alone" I don't have a problem with gay people but I do have a problem with the powers that be TPTB aggressively shoving that gay agenda down our throats every time I turn around. No offense to you personally but it's like if the gay people had a marching band and parade in my front yard for days at a time, uninvited, and shouting, "leave us alone!"…I say leave me alone geesh, I get it, i get it, calm down tiger. If there is nothing abnormal about homosexuality then why are they marching around and trying so hard to get everyone else to except it as normal? I'm gonna start my own parade and shout ,"Penis and vagina's UNITE!!!" I saw on the news a mom saying her 4 year old was gay and we better like it…..?!? That's disgusting. 4 year olds are not… Read more »
@Phil – Do you think it's reasonable to conclude you were pre-programmed homosexual at birth? With respect, this is an oxymoron that suggests you don't have free will. Think about it – it's biologically impossible to be born gay. No male (or female) can possess such sexual hormones at a young age. Also, you were created with a REPRODUCTIVE organ for a reason. In actual fact, being homosexual is a LIFESTYLE of choice rather than a pre-programmed condition. So the question a person with an inquiring mind should ask is: Why these agendas (such as homosexuality) are being promoted & accepted like never before? Now with regard to MSM always remember this point of fact: PR companies further their own agendas & interests by ‘setting trends’ through their control of mainstream news corporations in order to mould the minds of the masses to their way of thinking (i.e. propaganda). (BTW… Read more »

Amen to that! I don't care what anyone does between consenting adults, but the CHOICE of being a homosexual does not need to be shoved down people's and children's throats as a viable option for happiness… On top of that, these back-door messages that everyone will always be cool with this issue are getting older than the Catholic Church…

Didnt something very similar happen on the news channels after 9/11?

Lemmings!

I remember the news channels becoming more flashy after 911 with the graphics…………..and then I saw the superbowl and was like ?!?!? is that all the graphics the superbowl have?!?……the news is like some hypnotic graphic/sound effects for the graphics/ strobe light compared to the superbowl?!?

It may be nothing other than the press release which the Conan show sent out. Newsteams, rather than re-writing it, probably just copied it word for word.

I used to work in PR. The media routinely do this. They're short-staffed and under pressure to get news out there!

That's my explanation anyway.

lol what copycats. But yeah, they were all just reading off teleprompter scripts. VigilantMarcy is right. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert point these things out all the time.

I don't know that they're all under the same control, but they're all definitely fighting for ratings, too

I think their bosses bosses boss are all the same influence.
