Conservative voices are disappearing from the air, what's happening to liberal voices? If this were the market driving it then it would suggest a country rejecting conservatism only, but that doesn't quite make sense considered the result of the last election.

It's obvious what is going on, but you don't mind because the dirty tactics suit you. That much certainly is obvious.

And people have the tenacity of fall flat on their butts claiming that the danger to Americas political manipulation is the Russians and not within our own liberal media spoon-feeding the news that will give votes to the candidates of their choice with the character assassination of those that are not political worthy, they go as far as trying to take out a sitting president because its not what they want.

Way to go America, Liberalism gone dangerously wild.


I think we know who is really trying to influence elections. Fortunately they failed last time, but they are sure doubling and tripling down on the efforts now.

No. You're just projecting because it suits you, its a shame you're losing one of your prized hucksters that could make you feel good by reinforcing your belief. MSNBC sucks as well. The news in America and increasingly the west is corporate garbage

This whole fascist movement to threaten ad agencies, who then go on to pull their ads from anything the crybabies deem offensive, is ruining our news.

Fox News is getting hit but worse is what's happening to youtube where a number of alternative media types like Tim Pool are having their ad funding pulled, crushing the ability to make money and by extent, allowing a handful to continue controlling the media.

And to think that no even claiming Hillary won the presidency on election night help the hag win anything at all.

I am still thinking that even I was pretty sure that she was the winner as per polls and news media propaganda.

What that tells you.

I couldn't care less about Hannity. I hardly ever watch FOX, mainly because after watching it for a couple of months in 2016 during the elections, I got utterly bored of the crappy music they play here in the UK in place of your adverts. It's literally some rubbish singer playing bad music every 5 minutes. That is without the awful graphics montage every 2 minutes. It's awful all round. Whenever I do watch FOX now it's usually just to get a snippet of an interview or segment via youtube.

I do care that one media organisation uses their ideologically aligned advertising heads to start a commercial war against their rivals based on political ideology. It's a disgrace that is allowed to happen and BS about it being market forces needs to be rejected for the baloney that it is.

We have now have the news media of a third world banana republic.

You have only one sided 'official' news now no matter how many times you switch the channel. It is truly frightening where we are going as a country with one official narrative or else.

Congratulations America.


Did you ever consider that this is happening to Fox News because they have gone so far off the rails in their reporting, misinformation, and "infotainment" that people have had enough? One can only lie for so long. Just think for a moment, what if you've been taken for a ride, your media sources like Drudge and Fox have been full of lies, and someone like CNN has been telling the truth the entire time?

You mean those market forces that haven't been egregiously in play for the last 30 years and more? You were saying something about being selective? Fox News only exists because of those market forces. MSNBC only exists because of those market forces. They're not news, they're self reinforcing pandering commentary.

You might not like Chomsky but his Manufacturing Consent is dead on.

If this is true, it is truly terrifying that those that want total control of what people think are going to these lengths to silence anyone who offers a different message.

However, Hannity always takes a vacation break around Memorial Day weekend, according to his tweet:


Sean Hannity‏Verified account @seanhannity

Uh oh My ANNUAL Memorial Day long weekend starts NOW. Destroy Trump/Conservative media breathless coverage starts! Did Hannity do last show?

8:07 PM - 24 May 2017


twitter.com...



But every Christmas, he brags that he only takes off a few days each year and it's during the holiday season.

Either he's lying then, or he's lying now.

You really do not see a problem with an organized attempt to control the news in order to control what the public thinks?



That's not what's going on. What's happening is that Hannity jumped the shark. For about two years now he's been really into conspiracy theories, and he keeps going deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. Lately, he's started lifting stuff from Infowars (including promoting them and Alex Jones as credible sources of news on his radio show), and he went into the Glenn Beck career suicide spiral.

He's completely lost touch with reality, to the point that his editors won't let him run with stories anymore.

Chomsky used to be ok, but he's now senile.

As for why these media corporations exist, that is besides the point. The issue is that market forces are not at play here - it is a coordinated effort to remove voices who do not fit a certain narrative.

Sean Hannity Will Be Back, Fox Confirms: Naysayers “Are Going To Look Foolish”


Sean Hannity is taking his usual Memorial Day Weekend vacation, Fox News says in answer to speculation that the more-controversial-than-ever host was heading the way of Bill O’Reilly.

“Like the rest of the country, Sean Hannity is taking a vacation for Memorial Day weekend and will be back on Tuesday,” Fox said in a statement today. “Those who suggest otherwise are going to look foolish.”

The network’s statement supports Hannity’s tweet last night (see it below): “Uh oh My ANNUAL Memorial Day long weekend starts NOW. Destroy Trump/Conservative media breathless coverage starts! Did Hannity do last show?”

Hmm. Have you watch Rachael Maddow recently? If going down a conspiracy theory route was the path to being fired, she'd have had advertisers dropping out a long time ago and would already be stacking shelves at the local store.

CNN is the most cited news source when scored between liberal and conservative sources, they must be doing something right to pull people from both sides. MSNBC is more biased, but they have started adding conservatives to the lineup.

It most certainly is market forces, just the opposite direction of the way they usually function
