There is a powerful movement to re-direct news in a controlled fashion in the United States. For all practical purposes, it would be a takeover by government of news media reporting using the "nudge" style method of control favored by the Obama Administration.
Heading up the effort is Robert McChesney, a self-professed neomarxist media scholar. He operates a think tank disingeniously called, Free Press. His goal however is the exact opposite. He wants a controlled press--controlled by him and his neo-marxiasts buddies. He has publicly stated, “Only government can implement policies and subsidies to provide an institutional framework for quality journalism,” and "In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick-by-brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.”
