So here we go. I kept the title as close as possible as the article also discusses some personalities. Sorry NO RUSH!

All that freedom of speech stuff and the like and all of the above guys can spew whatever they want. The trouble is when they distort the facts, present bias, lie and basically attempt to undermine a sovereign nation regardless of your political beliefs and I make my case in current law. Meaning the United States Code and the Constitution. Well they still have to make a profit and it seems like we further support them by paying the sky high Direct TV, Dish and whoever else is out there monthly fees. Don't get me started on those cable guys as they are all for a true blue America eh? I wrote this because I was inspired by my local "rag" newspaper which for decades played the above game and they finally lost money for the 1st time in 40 years. So guess what, yep, they fired the distorting, hate baiting twister journalists because their voice was old, stale and simply dried out.

Take a look at some of the organizations below who fund these guys along with some of your other superheros or click on the link.

Interesting. Not surprising though.

Pharmaceuticals and insurance companies dominate.

Hmmmm...I wonder why? (not really, that was a rhetorical question).

Wow no wonder the left has a bigger voice in the media.

Most of the big american businesses advertise with them.

Where are all the big right wing companies I wonder?

Is it that right wing driven companies are less successful in america than the left ones or that the right ones don't advertise.

I mean I now the oil companies don't advertise and they would be considered right wing.

But who else is there?

Now this makes me wonder if the majority of millionaires and billionaires are also left wing.

hhhmmmm.

Correct. Ever think that USA and world is pushing towards "alternate" lifestyles because the pharma cost to transgender, and other behaviors is super $$$$$$ profitable for the Pharmas.

Your the winner! You caught the intentional spelling error.

Question? Do two half wits equal one quarter wit?

I didn't catch that but I did not read all. I guess it comes down to on the f _ _ as to who wins; Al Gore and CO2 exhaustion versus Big Pharma versus Junk Food guys.

Right now it would appear its the Junk Food guys.

Hey doesn't that Billionaire Warren Something own a sugary soda company?

Take a look at the numbers. It's hard to believe these large news organizations survive on advertising dollars alone.


Seeing the companies that advertise on the MSM tells you a lot about why news stories have so much spin, but seeing the source of the non-advertising revenue will tell you a lot more.

Exactly what I thought also.

Just like I also wonder that ever since Obama got elected we never saw or heard chants of "death to America" on MSM from the dancing folks from the middle eastern countries. Oh is that because the MSM wants them to come here and they are nice guys?

Why would anyone purposefully misspell a word ?
And , I would not be the one to ask that question of.
I dont intentionally misspell words...
