It really is amazing how these investments funds control the complete economy with other people’s money. These investment funds are supported by the very low interest rates on bank accounts...

This post is about the complete dominance over our deaf, dumb and blind media by the Big Four.
The biggest media conglomerates in the US are the following 6: Comcast, The Walt Disney Company, News Corp., Time Warner, Viacom, and CBS Corporation.

Major shareholders in Comcast Corporation include Vanguard, BlackRock, State Street, Fidelity (FMR), and Capital: https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/CMCSA/holders/

Major shareholders in News Corporation (this is reportedly completely controlled by Rupert Murdoch) include Vanguard, BlackRock, State Street: https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/NWS/holders?p=NWS

Maybe the giant internet “search” engines that hide the most interesting information are even more important than the corporations that invent our “news” – Google and Yahoo.
The Google company is for some reason called Alphabet and Verizon is the company that owns Yahoo (Verizon is also the parent company of AOL)

Major shareholders in Alphabet Inc. (Google) include Vanguard, BlackRock, State Street, Fidelity (FMR), and Capital: https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/GOOG/holders?p=GOOG

The Capital Group that is a major shareholder in some of the US media corporations has $1.5 trillion in assets. Capital obviously has a different focus than the Big Four (I can’t even say that the Big Three investment funds have a real focus).
It owns more than 10% of the giant corporations Lockheed Martin and Bayer AG.
Capital is also a major shareholder in the giant Netherlands corporations Akzo Nobel, KPN Telecom, ASML, and Royal Dutch Shell: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_Group_Companies

A lot of the corporations in which Capital is a major shareholder are affiliated with the Dutch Royal family...

Apparently Rupert Murdoch has been “buying” into Walt Disney Co. The story is that this month Disney has taken over 21st Century Fox.
To me it looks more like Rupert Murdoch has swapped some of his interest in the New Corp, for influence in Walt Disney. The Murdoch family trust becomes the second largest shareholder in Walt Disney stock: http://www.latimes.com/business/la-f...214-story.html

I’ve made a mistake…
The Fidelity Trust Company that owns a share in the Federal Reserve is not the same as Fidelity investments (FMR).
Fidelity Trust Company is part of the giant US bank Wells Fargo (that´s effectively controlled by the Big Four): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fidelity_Trust_Company
