Legislation of the media, people murdered as a result of non-responding threats on social media, the usage of the mass media by the government, and the political and law regulations made by our leaders (media control) are only some of the U.S. and U.K. communications strategies to keep under control every activity made by one in the web. The U.S. and U.K. governments are accessing top internet companies servers to track foreign targets thus creating a clear and definitely scary coordinated campaign to have under Mass Surveillance State System any internet movement regular citizens make while surfing on the web. There are three main ways the British and North American Governments use mass media as spy agencies: having massive access to international communications, making social media companies look like terrorist helpers, and through legislating the media itself.
The United States of America and the British governments shall not be accessing to valuable foreign-intelligence information. There have been reports on the newspaper where it’s been said that “those governments collect indiscriminately so much of the world’s private communications that literally do not know what to do with it” (New York Times newspaper). The social media companies not only have the ability-but also the duty-to monitor the communications of all of its users and report anything suspicious to other governments in case they are been targeted. Supreme authorities are using this information therefore setting up also a perfect way of accessing to whatever the government asks for.
While mass media companies are trying to do their job-opening enough technological tools for people-governments are using them for getting access into private information social media companies have. Following a communicative terrorist campaign within the communications strategies the States and U.K. governments already started, communicative concepts for manipulating information have been implemented on not only leaders who control the social media agenda, but also on the media itself which is letting those inappropriate communicative tactics being also implemented on the products people are consuming in order to have enough control on our information. However, there are still gaps between how media protects our private information, what they share with the government, and what it is really the sensible information the government shall be interested to collect.
There are many laws regulating the way mass media companies act. However, the key point is that those policies are being set by a fake democracy the U.S. and U.K. governments are implementing on not only the citizens, but on the mass media as well. Those leaders, throughout legislating how the media currently acts, either sign up, or reject any law towards their interests. The United States of America and the U.K. control mayor mass media companies such as Facebook, Google, Apple, and some other big technology companies in order to have access to everybody’s information and detect any suspicious activity of terrorism. The media is obligated to report any doubtful events of terrorism; however, they are also in capacity to divulge this information to society although it is a dangerous and sensible one, and there is when troubles within the system come up because the government in charge manipulate the mass media agenda, but also, it is been said that, they demonize the media as terrorist helpers whenever they do not report something. The intelligence agencies collect such us massive quantities of private communications that they even do not have the ability to understand what they have collected. They cannot detect terror plotting because they are overloaded with the communications of millions of innocent people around the world. Those companies are not able to monitor actual terrorism and if the media not always inform suspicious activities of terrorism on their web space then no one will be able to stop murderers of non-reporting threats on the media.
There are, then, three main ways the British and North American governments use mass media as spy agencies: having massive access to international communications, making social media companies look like terrorist helpers, and through legislating the media itself. Political communications concepts have been consulted by the U.S. and U.K. administrations in order to legislate the media, hide people murdered as a result of non-responding threats on social media, and use the mass media with political, economic and social purposes. The political and law regulation benefits (media control) are only some of the U.S. and U.K. communications strategies to keep under control every activity made by one in the web. It shall be curiosity from the citizens’ side to understand how and why the web activities are being controlled by the government. Their communications strategies allow them to access to top internet companies’ servers not only to track foreign targets, but also to target our information as sensible for them; thus creating a clear and definitely scary coordinated campaign to have under Mass Surveillance State System any internet movement regular citizens make while surfing on the web. Much more awareness is needed in order to protest against the system, and stop their massive surveillance; that’s the only way society can be free once more.
