what does poet Allen Ginsberg,"whoever controls the media-the image-controls the culture.", mean?

I would assume it is referring to how greatly the media effects society, so in saying that whoever controls the media -the image- controls the culture Allen Ginsberg means that Whoever controls the media also controls the culture because the media so greatly impacts us as a society. I hope I could help.

ginsberg and the beat poets in general were hella anti-conformity, especially since they were writing in the 1950s when american culture was pretty homogeneous for the most part
so yeah, basically he's saying that the media manipulates people
