News agencies today
News agencies pretend to deliver information to the public. See definition of school of journalism above. However in reality, there is very little "freedom of press" in the world today. Just about every single news organizations belong to very few corporations. Those big corporations control the dissemination of information to the public. The information is filtered and allowed to air or be printed. Governments in collaboration with news agencies, also promote dissemination of propaganda for the general public to see, hear, or read. In the US, there is a law that legalizes such propaganda.
Smith-Mund Act of 1948The U.S. Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 (Public Law 80-402), popularly called the Smith–Mundt Act, specifies the terms in which the United States government can engage global audiences, also known as propaganda. The act was first introduced as the Bloom Bill in December 1945 in the 79th Congress and subsequently passed by the 80th Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman on January 27, 1948.
The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (section 1078 (a)) amended the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987, allowing for materials produced by the State Department and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) to be released within United States borders for the Archivist of the United States.

News casts on TV
There are no real reporters nor journalists allowed on television. Most are so called (opinionated) "experts", or figure heads to pass on agendas or opinions.
Control of the masses is the key to those who rule the World. Globalism is marching. Sovereign Nations are being disassembled. Behind the curtain world rulers or Oligarchs try to control every single government in existence. There are however a few rebels. Time will tell, but the battle against World dominance has begun.
