  •  why blame corporate media for doing their job? (4+ / 0-)

    The purpose of advertising supported media is to deliver an audience to advertisers.  Preferably a happy audience that's in a mood to buy.  Any news that gets delivered to the audience is purely coincidental.

    If you want real news, you have to pay for it.  Many paid media (Pacifica, Democracy Now) got the story right.  Lord Northcliff said "News is what someone, somewhere, wants to suppress.  All the rest is advertising"

    We kidnap. We torture. It's our policy. Embrace it or end it!
