They gave us a republic...:: Media Malpractice

They gave us a republic...:: Media Malpractice

This is perhaps the most important of the lies being told to us by the right-wing elite. That the media is biased in favor of liberals. When the truth is, mainstream media has been gutted and trimmed to the point that it consists mainly of talking heads who either refuse to [or are incapable of] hold politicians to account, who fail to report on the true dangers and problems facing us, instead spending their time reporting on non-stories, or in reading listeners texts and emails as part of the news programs. Mainstream media is owned and controlled by corporate interests. It tows the line, follows the scripts provided by their corporate masters, with occasional outbursts provided, perhaps to allow Fox News and others to point and say "See, we told you they're liberal puppets!" . When the truth is, The Truth often does not agree with political talking points. True facts do not fit into political agendas; and understanding the truth might force us [the American public] to make some hard choices. To realize that we can't continue to have it all, to live as if there is no tomorrow, no need to save for the future.
