Object Class: Keter Explained

Former Special Containment Procedures: Manufacturers of cathode ray-tube electronics are to be infiltrated and taken over if necessary by Foundation assets. Broadcast television networks are to become Foundation-maintained assets in the same fashion. Corporate espionage procedures for this industry involve the following:

  • Taking over as many broadcast stations as front companies can legally own in key regions
  • Influencing legislation which allows for further consolidation of corporate assets
  • Branding which allows public relations campaigns to be undetected as Foundation-based campaigns.

Once a consolidation on the American media market has taken place, further testing may result in more hands-off containment procedures.

Description: SCP-1927-EX is a phenomenon relating to the popularity and growth of television as a medium for broadcast news, entertainment and information. It has a far greater impact on public opinion compared to previous mass-media devices, such as the radio.

Since the invention of the television broadcast by PoI Philo T. Farnsworth in 1927, the public perception of global safety and security has declined in spite of statistical evidence. This same effect occurred at the advent of printed media, newspapers and radio but to a much lesser comparative effect.

Foundation media monitors initially classified SCP-1927-EX after analysis of news and public opinion showed anomalous correlations. It has since been classified as Explained.
