Corporations compete against each other in a capitalist democratic republic like the US and have different agendas. But Authoritarian regimes like communist, dictatorships, or oligarchies would clearly have a unified propoganda message.
So, I absolutely disagree with you that the US is the most propagandized country in history.
Eastern bloc apparatchiks marveled at the sophistication of the US propaganda system. They said that the difference was while their form of propaganda was overt and comprehensive it was so much so that the people knew they were being manipulated so coercion was necessary to force obedience. Whereas in the US, the propaganda is even more widespread and constant but done much more artfully so that the populace doesn't understand how they are being manipulated and compliance to state authorities does not require coercion.
