Van Morrison, with some help from fellow marquee musician Eric Clapton, has used his talent as a songwriter and singer to challenge via songs coronavirus crackdowns. Now, in a new song, Morrison focuses his criticism on the media and its practice of pushing a party line to the exclusion of contrary opinions and refuting information.
Such big money media behavior is something we have experienced for over a year with the repeated promulgating of stories encouraging extreme coronavirus fear and promoting a slew of authoritarian actions taken in the name of countering coronavirus.
Morrison’s new song challenging the media is called “They Own the Media.” It starts with the following lyrics:
They tell us that ignorance is bliss
I guess for those that control the media it is
They own the media
They control the stories we are told
If you ever try to go against them
You will be ignored
