  •  My pet cause and case (4+ / 0-)

    I remember when this story first broke, we were Conspiracy Theorists for suggesting this employment law decision allowed news corporations to lie to the public.

    And now it's featured and nobody seems to HR it anymore. How far we've come and how sweet it is.

    SCOTUS should have heard this--I can't remember now offhand why it didn't...

    Now, that should have been showcased on television news programs and been on front pages of newspapers across the country. The fact that it wasn’t, shows just how detrimental to the public’s well-being having corporations provide news can be. Can we afford to allow corporations to be responsible for determining what is important in society? Can we allow them to decide what we discuss? Even though, time and again, they have shown a blatant disregard for truth, justice and human life? And, how about the Florida Second Court of Appeals deciding that truth just isn’t important enough to be included in the news? Not a mindlessly stupid half hour sitcom, but the NEWS.

    It’s been said that the first casualty of war is truth. Well, in this instance, the war is against truth and the casualties are the millions of people who have, and will, become sick because some greedy sociopaths want to make a killing. And, killing is exactly the right word for it.

    "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
