"Could a media system, controlled by a few global corporations with the ability to overwhelm all competing voices, be able to turn lies into truth?..."
This chilling documentary film examines the relationship between the media, corporate America, and government. In a country where the "top 1% control 90% of the wealth", the film argues that the media system is nothing but a "subsidiary of corporate America."

Public policy affects our ability to meet patient needs and provide shareholder value. Essential aspects of our business are being challenged by barriers to access, counterfeits, illegal importation and challenges to intellectual property protection. For this reason, we actively participate in public policy dialogues to explain our perspectives. We have extensive knowledge about health care and many ideas about improving its efficiency, as well as a global perspective on public health, disease prevention and health education.
We believe that public policy engagement is an important and appropriate role for companies in open societies, when conducted in a legal and transparent manner. In the U.S. there are important federal and state lobbying registration and disclosure laws with which Pfizer complies.
Court upholds ban on corporate political contributions
In a decision on Thursday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit found that a district court judge erred when he relied on the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision to dismiss one count of federal election law violations against William Danielczyk Jr. and Eugene Biagi.
The men formerly were officers with Galen Capital Group LLC and Galen Capital Corporation, two investment banks. They were indicted last year on charges that they used Galen funds to reimburse people more $186,000 in contributions to Clinton's 2006 Senate race and 2008 presidential campaign.
