Global TV: Big Brother in Every Home?

A UN watchdog is concerned about a proposal discussed at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that would create a global television channel. Cliff Kincaid, president of America's Survival, has expressed concern about the idea of a global IRS that was part of a report known as "The Global Agenda 2009," which was discussed at the recently concluded World Economic Forum in Davos.

According to Kincaid, the report urges the creation of global television network that would be far more liberal than CNN.

"They talk about this new channel having the ability to connect the world, to bridging cultures and people, and 'telling us who we are and what we mean to each other,'" he explains. "I mean, it sounds like a global brainwashing system...even worse than CNN."

Although Kincaid says he is no biblical scholar, he wonders about the end-times implications of such a channel. "Clearly they're talking about this global order, the new world order, global taxes [and] now global TV put at the service of some kind of global ruler of the world," he continues. "I don't know whether that would be the anti-Christ or not."

Kincaid says this story smacks of George Orwell's 1984.
