9 Ways American Billionaire Leasers Of Our Air Waves Kill People

by Nonviolence9 Sunday, May. 15, 2016 at 12:06 PM

American television kills people in a variety of ways, from war propaganda and hiding coverage of state executions to the forcefeeding of fast food ads to people, the promotion of football with its deaths and brain damage

9 Ways American Billionaire Leasers Of Our Air Waves Kill People

A. Some Of The Ways American television corporate leasers of public airwaves kill people:

1. the promotion of every illegal immoral war the US government has initiated since 1965

2. censoring news of executions by the federal and state governments. Over 3/4 of the world's countries and the vast majority of US states have banned or discontinued executions.

3a. the advertising of animal and fish flesh, eggs and dairy products, the primary cause of deaths and disease in the US.

3b the sheer number of food ads in the US is greater than that of any other country and a major factor in the US role as the world's most overweight people.

4. the advertising of alcohol with its consequent traffic accidents, domestic battering, deaths from cirrhosis of the liver etc.

5. the advertising of lethal drugs and killer vaccines... nor is the list of the murderous side effects of these drugs ever complete

6. the inculcation of violence in children through shows like Criminal Minds, Cops Reloaded, and over 1000 other shows

7. the broadcasting and ad promotion of deforesting wood in programs such as This Old House, carpentry, and other woodworking shows adds to the rapid climate change which is causing a greater number of tornadoes, great drought, more forest fires etc.

8. The tv network conspiracy of silence about Mad Cow, Mad Sheep, Mad Pig, Mad Chicken, Mad Fish, Mad Milk etc. in cooperation with the criminal denials of the USDA, CDC, FDA etc. has caused deaths in the US.

9. The promotion of football which has caused untold deaths, paralysis, concussions, knee destruction etc. Football also creates a culture of violence, of smashing and crushing illusory foes.


B. Some Ways American corporate leasers of public airwaves replace democracy with oligarchy:

1. TV has virtually no interactive talk shows. It is a forcefeeding medium of 1 way propaganda.

2. Billionaire leasers of the public's airwaves have made hundreds of billions of dollars in profiteering from election ads. In countries which are more democratic, airtime is free to members of all political parties.

3. Is the US the only country in which only one of the dominant political parties controls 90% of the radio waves. Mitt Romney's Clear Channel is one example.

4. The media have lied to citizens about the World Trade Center bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing (in which lies and suppression Obama nominee Merrick Garland was complicit), the murder of Osama Bin Laden (who had been dead for some time before) etc. etc. The Department Of Homeland Security has been created and directed by some of those involved in the 911 bombing.


American tv programs people to be violent and to be afraid, to be sheep, to be consumers of animal flesh and other fattening foods through subliminal ads, to ratify all the illegal immoral wars of Bush 1, Bush 2, Obama.

I Violence


Shows glorifying the FBI

Criminal Minds FBI Producers create unnecessary graphic murders (the polar opposite of an Agatha Christie mystery) often featuring screaming tied up women. The misperception that the FBI is above reproach and exposes corruption only occurring in state and local governments is a constant theme. Famous mystery writer Rex Stout was hounded by the FBI after he began sending out many copies of the book The FBI Nobody Knows to friends in the media and elsewhere. His own book The Doorbell Rang is an expose of some aspects of the crimes of J Edgar Hoover.

Covert Affairs glorifies the CIA


Blue Bloods NYPD

Cops Reloaded the most violent of all?

Court TV more polarizing confrontation


TV show 24 glorifies torture

Football Football players are the gladiators, collateral damage for the profiteer Caesars and amusement of the crowd




Two Broke Women CBS



Animal Killing

200 PBS Cooking Shows featuring cadaver foods and products stolen from captive animals

PBS Shows teaching children how to murder animals with bow and arrow, trapping or hunting

Networks given over entirely to animal murder through hunting, fishing and trapping.


IV Advertising

The US has more food ads than any other country.. and has the most obese people per capita


V Product Placement

Mike and Molly, Jeopardy, Stephen Colbert etc. work in brand names in the show script.


VI Censorship

The majority of Americans, antiwar, are excluded from the mass media as are third party candidates.


VII Lies

Virtually every news and entertainment show has regurgitated the lie that 911 was caused by Arab terrorists, a point of view not held by German ministers, members of the Japanese Diet, the president of Italy, certain Roman Catholic bishops, French scientists, thousands of pilots, engineers etc. One of the latest to promote the falsehood 9 the show Person Of Interest. 11truth dot org

The same holds true for lies covering up the OKC bombing by the CIA, and the phony mission to kill the alleged Osama Bin Laden (who had died earlier). 30 Navy Seals died on the return trip in a helicopter crash. Was that to silence them?


IX Killing people

The inactive FCC allows tv networks to shill for multinational drug cartels which pricegouge and which through ads for lethal drugs cause homicide, suicide, heart attacks, strokes, blindness (e.g. Viagra), and hundreds of other fatal side effects.


X Muzzling The Public

There are virtually no interactive talk shows on television, as most leasers (none owners) of airwaves want to forcefeed propaganada, not share the airwaves with the people who own them.


XI Infomercials

Infomericals of a half hour, an hour are a violation of the contract between leasers of our airwaves and the FCC. Both leasers and the FCC have violated countless times the original airwaves plan.

In Cleveland, Ohio it was found that whenever The 3 Stooges was on the air, children were more involved in playground hitting and other violence.

Early exposure to tv violence predicts violence in adults
