This is a fictitious story that is based on real events that happen every day. Many members of Congress take bribes from companies who have ties to major news outlets and spend millions of dollars in advertising benefiting media outlets. The member of Congress knows he will be protected because these big media companies will protect them.
Many corrupt executives of our major corporations are arranging mergers with Big Media Conglomerates to protect themselves and their company from criminal charges. They will also continue to get big bonus with impunity knowing that they are protected to continue their evil ways even if it kills thousand of us.
The News Media is also known as the Fourth Estate which is a check and balance on the, Congress, judiciary and the executive. The Fourth Estate has been neutralized, and the Deep State is continuing to rip us off knowing that they are protected by the Fourth Estate.
