World's 2 Biggest Companies Merger
First, it was Time Warner, and AT&T. We didn't see coverage of the merger as it was taking place, as the MSM is already controlled by such organizations (MSNBC had a previously merger with Comcast). Lee camp discussed it vociferously and highlighted the details of what many may have never discovered. Jimmy Dore likewise discusses the similar issue of Amazon owner, Jeff Bezos, joining the Pentagon defense board. As late stage capitalism progresses, the same company, Amazon, is partnering with "Whole Foods" as the nation's network of manufacturing, goods, and services becomes more narrow, and more monopolized.

Google & Walmart
The economic power-shift created by the merger of Amazon and Whole Foods has threatened the monopolization of of manufacturing, production, and retail wielded by Walmart, rated the biggest, most valuable company on the planet. Walmart has responded to this new power structure by attempting to forge a similar economic relationship with Google, who appeared second on a Forbes list of biggest companies in the world.
Walmart and Google have reportedly forged a "merger" of sorts, or, a "partner-ship", as it was called by the New York Times. The flagrant denial of the effects of late-stage capitalism forces the merger of these companies to be reported in a "fun, competitive" way, as all head-lines reporting on this issue have done, rather than report this event as a rapidly expanding concentration of wealth and power, and the cycles of global economic exploitation in order to keep the system afloat. This merger leaves us with essentially two companies pulling the levers of the "means of production" in the US, and no representation for the economic power of the working class who is being exploited to generate power for the system.
