If you wanted to manipulate and control the world for profit, first you need to control the media, then the government and then own the companies that consumers rely on. Meet BlackRock and Vanguard
As of 2022, BlackRock, Inc – $9.5 trillion ($9,500,000,000,000) in assets under management (AUM), and second is Vanguard with more than $8 trillion ($8,000,000,000,000). Further BlackRock runs a massive technology platform that oversees at least $21.6 trillion in assets.

When it comes to The New York Times, as of May 2021, BlackRock is the second-largest stockholder at 7.43% of total shares, just after The Vanguard Group, which owns the largest portion (8.11%).
In addition to The New York Times, Vanguard and BlackRock are also the top two owners of Time Warner, Comcast, Disney and News Corp, four of the six media companies that control more than 90% of the U.S. media landscape.
Needless to say, if you have control of this many news outlets, you can control entire nations by way of carefully orchestrated and organized centralized propaganda disguised as journalism.
If your head is spinning already, you’re not alone. It’s difficult to describe circular and tightly interwoven relationships in a linear fashion. The world of corporate ownership is labyrinthine, where everyone seems to own everyone, to some degree.
