“Caryl Matrisciana is a superb documentary filmmaker, and her video GODS OF ENTERTAINMENT is an extremely important contribution to media wisdom. Taking off on my statement that whoever controls the media controls the culture, Caryl shows the behind-the-scenes mechanism of how Hollywood works and exposes the prevailing bias in the entertainment industry.” — Dr. Ted Baehr, Movieguide
Whoever controls the media controls the culture that elects the politicians who appoint the judges who shape our political, social, legal rules, laws and spiritual worldview.
Freedom has historically been part of American idealism yet today’s mass media attempts to erode traditional values, American liberty and social decency. This eye-opening video explains the agenda behind the power-grab of five U.S. mega-media conglomerates that control 95% of mass media and entertainment worldwide.
Why when moviegoers prefer conservative, patriotic films with positive moral values does Hollywood’s elite continue to spew out motion pictures promoting socialism, radical feminism, left-wing political correctness, violence, sex, language, pagan influence and atheism? Mel Gibson’s unprecedented success with “The Passion of The Christ” overwhelmingly expresses the spiritual heart of the majority of Americans yet Hollywood’s decision makers adamantly refused to invest in the making of Mel’s film or support its distribution. Why?
Many believe the strong anti-Christian bias of those in mass media and their influence in the content of TV programs and movies is to blame for the declining values of society. Hollywood would rather advance films like the Harry Potter series that has been lauded by pagans for the growing teenage interest in witchcraft than support traditional Bible based themes. Why?
In Caryl Matrisciana’s latest video you’ll learn that powerful forces both supernatural and human are vying for superiority in the battle between good and evil. That the targets of those in power are America’s 32 million teenagers, who in the process of being bilked of their $150 billion spending potential are being seduced, enticed and brainwashed by biased media messages which dangerously twist worldviews for the worse.
Did you know that by the time teenagers are 17 years old they have spent 40,000 hours watching movies, videos, TV programs, playing video games, listening to music, and reading popular books and news stories, thus making the mass media of entertainment among the most influential teachers of our children, and the prime source of values, spiritual instruction and behavior modification?
Veteran film maker Caryl, a leading expert in world religions and paganism, interviews media pundit Dr.Ted Baehr: Mel Gibson’s “Behind-the-Scenes of The Passion” documentary film-maker, Dave Minasian: Radio talk-show host and political commentator Jane Chastain: authors of Harry Potter and the Global Child, Bill Schnoebelen and Wendell Amstudz: theology authority Joe Holden: and Pastor Dave Shirley, who pull back the curtain of the entertainment industry revealing fascinating information about the influence of media, good and bad, and equip the viewer to stand firm against its persuasive powers that can corrupt.
