Unfortunately, those interests are usully in opposition to Christianity, gun ownership, decency, the Constitution and truth. Since 1915 most major media outlets have been in the hip pocket of the international bankers, the Democratic Party and big advertisers in general. That's why the MSM generally supports American disarmament (including private ownership of guns), gay marriage and the gay political agenda, anti-Christian groups such as the ACLU, and anything promoting the New World Order agenda.
Please read the following quotes made by media insiders who know the truth because they saw it unfold in their time.
"In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press....They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers.
"An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers."
U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway, 1917
"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."
David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991.
" Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the [U.S.] media."
Noam Chomsky, American linguist and US media and foreign policy critic (Libertarian Socialist)
" I have the greatest admiration for your propaganda. Propaganda in the West is carried out by experts who have had the best training in the world -- in the field of advertizing -- and have mastered the techniques with exceptional proficiency ... Yours are subtle and persuasive; ours are crude and obvious ... I think that the fundamental difference between our worlds, with respect to propaganda, is quite simple. You tend to believe yours ... and we tend to disbelieve ours. "
a Soviet correspondent based five years in the U.S.

"Newspapers are unable, seemingly, to discriminate between a bicycle accident and the collapse of civilization."
George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwight and critic, 1856-1950 (Fabian Socialist)
"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
John Swinton, Chief of Staff New York Times at New York Press Club, 1953
"... the media in the United States effectively represents the interests of corporate America, and ... the media elite are the watchdogs of what constitutes acceptable ideological messages, the parameters of news and information content, and the general use of media resources.
Peter Phillips, Project Censored, 1998
"[The] media, our top elected official, and our two dominant political parties rarely criticize the growing power of large corporations because they are bankrolled by them."
Nancy Snow, author
"Good journalism is being criminalized or otherwise rendered perilous to its best practitioners. Attack a government agency like the CIA, or a Fortune 500 member ..., or the conduct of the military in Southeast Asia and you find yourself in deep trouble, naked and often alone. "
Daniel Schorr, journalist
"The owners of the Washington Post long ago acknowledged that the Post is the government's voice to the people. In 1981, Katherine Graham, who owns the Post and Newsweek announced that her editors would ‘cooperate with the national security interests. National security in this context means ‘CIA.’”
John Stockwell, former CIA official and author (Outspoken Critic of the CIA)
I.F. Stone, journalist and author
"The news and truth are not the same thing."
Walter Lippmann, American journalist, 1889-1974 (Progressive)
"The notion that journalism can regularly produce a product that violates the fundamental interests of media owners and advertisers ... is absurd."
Robert McChesney, journalist and author
"The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western world. No First World country has ever managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity - much less dissent. "
Gore Vidal, novelist and critic
"There's a whole journalistic-industrial complex dedicated to keeping newsprint, TV screens and radio waves clean of destabilizing scoops damaging to corporations or the state."Alexander Cockburn, journalist
So, now we know how and why there was a united media outcry for gun controls and hatred and vitriol against Sarah Palin and the TEA Party almost immediately after Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords was shot in Arizona. It isn't in the best interests of the international bankers (Federal Reserve) to allow the man in the street to have the means to defend himself against a government takeover and I sincerely believe they are terrified of the TEA Party and Sarah Palin.
