Ok, ok. How about this. CNN and most of the rest of MSM are a corporate media outlet that peddles far left ideology and due to this they are hemorrhaging ratings. Is that better?

The problem is not me. The problem is everyone criticizing me has no idea what "left" means. I once heard Sean O'Reiily say he was "fair and balanced" and that he had "leftist on my shows all the time." The problem is when you are that far to the right everyone is a leftist.
MS-NBC and CNN are corporate media outlets. They are not leftist organizations trying to bring about a redistribution of power away from their corporate advertisers. They are just NOT anti-Corporation. They are not organizing strikes and they NEVER say anything bad about how their advertisers are rigging the markets and gouging the American consumer with cartels and monopolies. NEVER!!!!
If you want true left leaning commentary go to this site:
and this one:
There are stories on these sites the corporate media would NEVER run.
If CNN and MSM were really left wing they would be talking about voter suppression, "More People Are Voting — But 1,688 Polling Places Have Closed in 6 Years" Just look at the headlines in the two sites I've reference. This is TRUE left wing thinking.
CNN and MSM will NEVER criticize their advertisers. They will never run stories about how their own workers are not being paid enough compared to their own corporate CEOs. They just will never do it.
As much as I don't like Bill Cooper he was right about "Freedom". Freedom of the press to anyone who owns one. If you don't like what the media is saying then buy it and control it as he says in this video:
Bill Cooper, you don't like the media then buy it and then you can say what you want
Republicans have all the money. It just is not logical to claim the media is leftist because that would imply people bent on sharing the wealth own the media which is unlikely. People who believe in exploitation of workers are the only ones with enough capital to be able to buy and control the media.
This whole thing about the "left-wing media" is just BS misdirection while the people in power screw the American people with a big fat giant rod.

They lean heavily to the truth.
And didn't you just write that you do not watch or listen to any political news and you just get that from ATS?
I would swear it was you who wrote that.
It's not even necessarily coming from the top as much as it is the boots on the ground.

I don’t know how you expect anyone to take you seriously when you’re posting absolute lies and nonsense like you are. If you’d taken even just a couple of minutes to research your topic you would’ve know your wrong, very wrong. I also don’t think you believe a damn thing you’ve written.
Murdoch who owns FOX claims he’s a right wing libertarian.
Bloomberg owns Washington Post, Dem/lefty.
Ted Turner owns CNN, Dem/lefty
Disney/ABC publicly traded but largest share holder is Laurene Jobs/ Steve Jobs widow, Dem/lefty, Disney Co very left.
Comcast/MSNBC, NBC, CEO Brian Roberts Dem/ lefty
I could keep going but I would hope you get the picture by now. You’re about as wrong as wrong can be.
