    if I'm not mistaken, they control ONE HUNDRED percent of all that we see/hear in the "mainstream".

    But other than that, you're spot-on...

    most mainstream journalists do not challenge the powers that sign their contracts and pay their salaries.
    Because it has been legal to fire them for disobeying those powers since the early part of the new century.

    If those powers tell them to fluff a story and ignore inconvenient facts, that is exactly what they do if they want to be paid. Period.

    "The “Left” is NOT divided on the need to oppose austerity and the Great Betrayal. The Third Way is not left or center or even right. It is Wall Street on the Potomac."--Bill Black
