Media manipulation foretold in 1997 James Bond movie "Tomorrow Never Dies"
I've been thinking about this movie for quite a while in that it relates to current goings on re: media manipulation with examples of 9/11, Japanese nuclear accident, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Egypt, etc, etc

Is this the recipe used?

MI6 sends James Bond (Pierce Brosnan), agent 007, into the field to spy on a terrorist arms bazaar on the Russian border. Via television, MI6 and the British military identify several wanted men, including American "techno-terrorist" Henry Gupta (Ricky Jay), who is buying a GPS encoder made by the American military. Despite M's (Judi Dench) insistence to let 007 finish his reconnaissance, the British Admiral Roebuck (Geoffrey Palmer) launches a missile attack on the arms bazaar. Bond then discovers two Soviet nuclear torpedoes mounted on an L-39 Albatros, and as Roebuck fails to cancel the missile's approach, 007 hijacks the L-39 and flies away while the weapons bazaar explodes. Gupta escapes with the encoder.
Media baron Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce), head of the Carver Media Group Network (CMGN), begins his plans to use the encoder to provoke war between China and the United Kingdom, which would replace the Chinese government with one more supportive to Carver's plans of exclusive broadcast rights. Meaconing the GPS signal using the encoder, Gupta sends the British frigate HMS Devonshire off-course in the South China Sea, where Carver's stealth ship, lead by Mr. Stamper (Götz Otto), sinks the frigate with a sea drill and steals one of its missiles. Afterwards, Stamper's men shoot down a Chinese J-7 fighter jet sent to investigate the British presence, and kill the Devonshire's survivors with Chinese weaponry. After reading a CMGN report of the incident as a Chinese attack, Roebuck deploys the British Fleet to recover the frigate, and possibly retaliate, leaving M only forty-eight hours to investigate its sinking.
M sends Bond to investigate Carver after Carver Media releases news with critical details hours before these have become known, and MI6 noticed a spurious signal from one of his CMGN communications satellites when the frigate was sunk. Bond travels to Hamburg and seduces Carver's wife, Paris (Teri Hatcher), an ex-girlfriend, to get information that would help him enter Carver's newspaper headquarters. After Bond steals back the GPS encoder, Carver orders Paris and Bond killed. Paris is killed by Dr. Kaufman (Vincent Schiavelli), but Bond kills Kaufman and escapes in his BMW 750i. Bond then goes to the South China Sea to investigate the wreck, discovering one of the missiles missing. He and Wai Lin (Michelle Yeoh), a Chinese spy on the same case, are captured by Stamper and taken to the CMGN tower Saigon, but they escape and begin collaborating.

Media manipulation goes back to the creation of tv networks. Look into who owns the tv networks an the connection between them. They are the same people that created Hollywood. You can start with a documentary called hollywoodism.

Media manipulation wasn't FORETOLD in a 1997 movie. Control and manipulation of the media has been going on since BEFORE you were born. Ask your grandparents; they can tell you.
