Why?
No, the mass media doesn't together have their own agenda, but each media corp/company does have one.

That is why one newspaper supports one set of views whilst another supports a different set of views.

And yes, mass media does change the way citizens think as it is the main source of information for most.

I have some questions:
Who pays the newspaper? Why? Because, nowadays, the people don't buy a newspaper, only read on Internet.

Sometimes the mass media focus on in a some news but another news don't pay attention. Why do the mass media want to change the way people think?

Apart from when the Guardian printed a false story of Jezbollah having been unable to find a seat on a train which turned out to be untrue.

I think so.

The media can help or sink somebody.

Nowadays, people don't buy the newspaper only read on Internet, and the mass media be in debt. Somebody has some hidden agenda in order to pay off the debt.

You can see their plan to become profitable again they are attacking alt media like people on YouTube and trying to get the income by forcing advertisers to advertise with them instead of youtubers

There's a chance, this company was in debt with somebody and it pays off a debt.

The media helps those who pay them

People don't buy newspaper, if there is no profit there is no business.

Who sponsors them?

I'd hope not but people do allow their lives and political choices to be influenced by celebrities and tabloids and what they see on the news, etc. I never have so I don't understand people who do that but clearly it happens.

An example was George Orwell and war worlds.

Only the minds of the logically inept/devoid. Why not manipulate individuals that are too ignorant to develop independent thought? After all, it is through their own ignorance alone.

The fact that this opinion is widespread evidences the fact that there is no conspiracy going on here. (while this is an ironic account I see your points as worthy of address)

That's the whole point of mass media. To spread propaganda and turn people's views towards those that suit the agencies or corporations.
