Re: The Media And The State Are Now One
All we are really talking about is market motivation here. Others have said this and they are all right, it is a niche market with many in competition here. FoxNews, CNN, NBC, ABC, half the internet based reporting sites, cable or otherwise, it does not matter. Sometimes we are talking about outright media manipulation of the truth, most of the time just selective reporting. FoxNews enjoys this just as much as The Huffington Post writers. It is happening with so much frequency the best option here now is to scan them all and form your own conclusion. Become as informed as possible instead of becoming the mindless drone the majority of our media wants you to be. There is a point to be made here about the right political party in power having general media support. We see it, we debate it all the time.
