The Arizona Right Wing Propaganda Press

I used to wonder why so many people voted for and claimed to be conservatives in Arizona. I also remember the tag line from the movie "Brave New World" which states that he who controls information controls the world. I want you to adjust your thinking here a minute.  Imagine what it would be like if you, like a jury in a court, after hearing something a lawyer or witness that was perjuring themselves said, and then being told by the judge that you are to disregard that last statement. What is I could prove to you that a monopoly bent on serving up fresh propaganda gives you your daily news? Would you listen? Could you actually listen to something said at this and ask yourself to disregard everything they say? 
Here is the truth about Arizona Newspapers. 


The Arizona Republic is a daily newspaper which became the largest in Arizona and is published in Phoenix, AZ. 
History: 



  1. It was established May 19, 1890,  and run by Dwight B. Heard, under the name The Arizona Republican. Heard continued running the paper, while being a Phoenix land and cattle baron, from 1912 until he died in 1929.
  2. The paper was then run by two of its top executives, Charles Stauffer and W. Wesley Knorpp. 
  3. Stauffer and Knorpp changed the newspaper's name to The Arizona Republic in 1930. 
  4. Stauffer and Knorpp also had bought the rival Phoenix Evening Gazette and Phoenix Weekly Gazette, later known as The Phoenix Gazette and the Arizona Business Gazette. 
  5. It was bought by Midwestern newspaper magnate Eugene C. Pulliam in 1946.
  6. This paper was ranked tenth in U.S. daily newspapers by circulation in 2007.
Like News Corps, the conglomerate news agency owned by Rupert Murdoch, Gannett controls a huge amount of the News Businesses. It overshadows News Corps in the amount of news it "oversees". It is the largest newspaper holding company in the United States. It's listing of holdings is listed at: http://www.cjr.org/resources/?c=gannett  and I will warn you, you are going to be reading awhile. Does being the most widely circulated news make it more accurate. Not according to the tabloid news companies like News Corps.


[edit]< From Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Arizona_Republic#Pulliam_era

"...

Pulliam era

Pulliam, who bought the two Gazettes as well as the Republic, ran all three 
newspapers until his death in 1975 at the age of 86. A strong period of growth 
came under Pulliam, who imprinted the newspaper with his conservative brand 
of politics and his drive for civic leadership. Pulliam was considered one of the 
influential business leaders who created the modern Phoenix area as it is known
today.
Pulliam's holding company, Central Newspapers, Inc., as led by Pulliam's widow 
and son, assumed operation of the Republic/Gazette family of papers upon the 
elder Pulliam's death. The Phoenix Gazette was closed in 1997 and its staff 
merged with that of the Republic. The Arizona Business Gazette is still published
to this day.
In 1998, a weekly section geared towards college students, "The Rep", went into
circulation. Specialized content is also available in the local sections produced for
many of the different cities and suburbs that make up the Phoenix metropolitan 
area.

[edit]Gannett purchase

Central Newspapers was purchased by Gannett in 2000, bringing it into common 
ownership with USA Today and the local PhoenixNBC television affiliate, KPNX
The Republic and KPNX combine their forces to produce their common local news
website,www.azcentral.com. It is the most-visited site in the state of Arizona 
and is among the most-trafficked newspaper websites in the U.S.  ..."
Now, let's suppose some cosmic judge told us to disregard everything we heard 
from a corporate monopolized news organisation and think for yourselves. ..."
Now, let's look at the word MONOPOLY and I don't mean the game from Parker 
Brothers. Let's look first at the criticisms of the game Monopoly. Again from 
Wikipedia:  "...Wired magazine believes Monopoly is a poorly designed game. 
Former Wall Streeter Derk Solko explains, "Monopoly has you grinding your oppo-
nents into dust. It's a very negative experience. It's all about cackling when your
opponent lands on your space and you get to take all their money." 
Most of the 3 to 4 hour average playing time is spent waiting for other players 
to play their turn. Board game enthusiasts disparagingly call this a "roll your dice,
move your mice" format. ..."
So, even the game monopoly is about learning to be greedy, selfish, and vindictive
which is why monopolies are supposed to  be ILLEGAL in the United States. 
The legal term is defined as:
"...1. exclusive control of a commodity or service in a particular market, or a control that makes possible the manipulation of prices. Compare duopoly, oligopoly.
2. an exclusive privilege to carry on a business, traffic, or service, granted by a government.
3. the exclusive possession or control of something.
4. something that is the subject of such control, as a commodity or service.
5. a company or group that has such control. ..."
So, you tell me, should we disregard everything they tell us or maybe the ques-
tion that is more pertinent should be, "CAN YOU disregard the statement?" con-
sidering it came from a biased source?
If you can, keep reading. If you can't then you need to read this: Blocks To
