I can't take credit for this idea, because it was from a documentary. But give this a read, for you fools who spit out BS saying "liberal media
this, liberal media that."
Media, and their producers, have bills to pay. Radio, Television, newspapers, you name it. Usually, it's the companies who advertise on those
networks who pay those bills, and you know what that means? if they don't see something they like, they will go find another station to advertise
their hoo-de-nany on. Guess what else?
Every major network of mainstream media is owned, at least partly, by a major conglomerate empire.
Fox = Rupert Murdoch's News corporation
ABC = Disney
NBC = General Electric
CBS = Westinghouse and Horus. j/k
but seriously, who the hell does CBS think they are flaunting the eye around like that?
BECAUSE these stations are owned by business leaders, that means that they want to have these stations performing sort of as vehicles for their
products. Kind of like how Fox only airs fox movies, or at least usually, and ABC only airs insincere family-based crap (typical disney brainwashing).
and do you know what this means?
when any of the higher ups of those networks hear of or see anything being broadcast on their networks that they don't approve of, they can it. so
you see, the term "liberal media" is a myth. every media outlet has an agenda to carry out, a purpose to serve based on the owners of that
particular manufacturer of entertainment.
in case you forgot, liberal means "free", which means "with choice". Now, if you have a bunch of people controlling what people can see on their
news networks, that alone negates the "with choice" prospect of media. What you have is sanitized, politically-correct, corporate-friendly media.
and that is anythig but liberal.
chances are, if you say things such as "the liberal media says this", you are already not taking the time to watch an independent news network.
There is no liberal mainstream media as they are all under direct control of their parent companies, thereby negating the idea that they are liberated
to report on what they please.
