  •  GMA on ABC was terrible... (4+ / 0-)

    They just showed Joe laughing and gesturing and didn't play anything substantive from him at all. For Ryan, they gave him some line about Obamacare robbing Medicare and that was about it.

    Actually, they mostly hyped how great they though Martha Raddatz was.  thpppt.

        Press freedom --the fantasy that a free press would produce a journalistic press-- is the single most disastrous blunder in the history of democratic system design.

        Once the system is sufficiently captured by corporations, a corporate press is the same thing as a state-only press.

        •  We actually do need a good "third estate" -- (0+ / 0-)

          It's the fucking corporatocracy, buying the media, and wielding undue influence that's the problem.

          There's a huge degree of corrupting influence exerted by money in this election.

          And in our school curriculum
          And in various the back halls of Congress

          Fucking greedy bazillionaires who only want more profit, more corporate welfare, and have no care AT ALL about how the rest of the people survive.

          Democrats promote the Common good. Republicans promote Corporate greed.
