Governmedia (government + media)

"Governmedia” (govern + media) is the combination of government and media. The nicknames “fourth branch of government” and “government watchdog” are sometimes given to the media, but “governmedia” describes a media that is a tool of the government. “Governmedia” has been cited in print since at least 1993.


Urban Dictionary
Governmedia
That certain recursive entity resulting from the corruption and collusion that merges government agencies and media entities into a single, self-sustaining, propaganda machine.

A Governmedia purports to be two separate, law-abiding entities when it is, in reality, a single lawless, two-faced beast.

The first face is the “trusted” news anchor face that leverages its perceived neutrality and credibility to persuade and mislead the general public into believing the other face: the officially authorized government liar face that consorts with the first face because it spent all of its own credibility on scandals, deceptions, deceit and duplicity.

Obviously the Governmedia is running scared. Scared of the peoples new-found ability to react to lies, propaganda andhidden agendas.

Enjoy hamburgers while you can. The media proclaims that they cause global warming — inevitably a prelude to legal restrictions.

Obama the Socialist

by Jacob G. Hornberger
Amidst all the devastation from the latest economic crisis, there have been some really funny moments. Among the most humorous has got to be what happened this past week with President [sic] Obama and the New York Times.
