Congressional Record: JP Morgan & Co purchased all major media

Washington Examiner -

Congressman Oscar Callaway lost his Congressional election for opposing US entry into WW 1. Before he left office, he demanded investigation into JP Morgan & Co for purchasing control over America’s leading 25 newspapers in order to propagandize US public opinion in favor of his corporate and banking interests, including profits from US participation in the war. Mr. Callaway alleged he had the evidence to prove Morgan associates were working as editors to select and edit articles, with the press receiving monthly payments for their allegiance to Morgan.

One of the leading papers, The New York Times, printed the story of Congressman Callaway's call for investigation from Washington, D.C., but the editor chose a curious and dis-informing headline for the story:
Moore Asks Inquiry Into Charges
on Preparedness Campaign.
The US eventually followed “opinion leaders” into the war, despite no national security risk from the sinking of a British ship carrying over four million rounds of ammunition to kill Germans (Lusitania), and Germany’s offer to Mexico to attack the US with an empty promise of German help if, and only if, the US declared war on Germany first (Zimmermann telegram; Mexico rejected the offer immediately as a military impossibility and a ploy for Americans to busy themselves killing Mexicans instead of Germans).
Both my grandfathers risked their lives in the American Expeditionary Force from political/media war propaganda, as did your relatives.
Congressman Callaway joined Congressman Abraham Lincoln in being deposed from Congress for challenging lying war rhetoric and being branded as “unpatriotic.”
