Six groups control 100% of U.S. media
« on: September 27, 2011, 08:04:25 AM »
Here’s one for you conspiracy folks. Only six families or business groups in America control 100% of our news companies.

Quote
These are the groups (and the top individuals within them) who own EVERY news organization:  Fidelity Investments (FMR LLC) which is privately owned by the Johnson family; The Vanguard Group which is privately owned by William McNabb, John Bogle, Richard Carpenter, George Sauter, & Morimer Buckley; Capital Group Companies (Capital Research Global Investors, Capital World Investors) which is privately owned by  James Rothenberg, Timothy Armour, John Webb, Paul Haaga & Paul Roye, Philep de Toledo, Michael Jackson, Scott Khemthong, Brendan MacMillan, John Smet, Martin Romo, Robert Lovelace, Grant Cambridge, Michael Kerr, Wagener, David Fisher, Joyce Gordon; the mysterious Price (TROW) Associates, Inc (Owned by TROW Price Group) which is both private & public, oddly owns J.P. Morgan and in return is owned by J.P. Morgan in a bizarre circular scheme that makes them appear to be the same agency and is owned by James Kennedy, Kenneth Van Moreland, Brian Rogers, Joseph Paul Croteau, Barbara Ann Van Horn, Edward Bernard, Michael Gitlin, William Stromberg, Christopher Alderson, and John Linehan; Wellington Management Co., LLP which is privately owned by Perry Marques Traquina, Frank Catrickes, Frank Teixeira, Edward Johnson Steinborn, and Thomas Louis Pappas; and lastly Dodge & Cox which is privately owned by Wendell W. Birkhofer, Bryan Cameron, John A. Gunn, Harry R. Hagey, David C. Hoeft, Kenneth E. Olivier, Charles F. Pohl, Gregory R. Serrurier, and Diana S. Strandberg.

To summarize:  these are the six private companies that own all the news:  Fidelity Investments, The Vanguard Group, Capital Group Companies, Price (TROW) Group (though technically public, is actually private), and to a lesser extent Wellington Management Co. LLP and Dodge & Cox.

“How have they avoided monopoly laws”, you might wonder.  Ah.  They think they are clever.  Each of these families & groups use the EXACT same ‘shell’ companies to purchase the news.  Each of their stock profiles look almost identical.  Each family or group has bought either directly into the stocks of the news organizations or have used ‘vehicle’ companies, all owned by them, to purchase the news.  No matter how you cut the cake, they have split the news between them in what looks like a scheme to ensure that no family or group gets the upper hand on the other.  The patterns are too similar to be a coincidence.  No way, no how.

These are the ‘vehicle’ companies that these groups & families own and use to make their acquisitions:  Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan (and Price TROW Association in a circular ownership scheme), State Street, BlackRock and Alliance Bernstein.  That’s it.  The six families and/or groups each own about equal shares of these ‘vehicles’.  They split them up between themselves.  They have the controlling majorities together.
