12. Yes, our corporate news media has way too much power
Most people are in the habit of getting their news from tv or other corporate media outlets, and they're incapable of coming to their own conclusions. As you say, the truth often gets drowned out.

But I see that starting to change. Most people are in favor of impeaching our current administration, even though our corporate media hardly ever talks about it. The internet is doing wonders to combat the propaganda. And also, certain journalist employees of the corporate media, who have the integrity to speak truth to power (like Keith Olberman) help quite a bit.
