    What about the lying far right media?

    Shouldn't we boycott that also?

    What's good for some should be good for others , eh?



    How about if everyone just ignores all of the published news and we all spend all of our time traveling all over this planet collecting our own news?

    That should eliminate all of the bias and corruption, eh?

    Note the " ? " .
    American media is a potpourri of lies, half truths, foolish opinions, and the truth...Its primary function is to "entertain " .
    Finding and knowing anything is the hard part.
    Solution ?
    I'd greatly expand NPR and PBS.

    Not at all, then the government has a monopoly over the news.

    Perhaps you miss the point. You will never see this article on the MSM-Mainstream Media. Gee, I wonder why?

    no vote
    I do not know if Fox is included.
    Is NPR included ?
    Most if not all "news" is actually entertainment; but not corrupted as such...

    I see. You need to be dumb as a box of rocks to publish the truth. It's an old true story.

    Of course it is. Why else do you think we have created agencies to monitor and regulate it. To protect workers from its vise. Late 19th early 20th century American industry was nothin nice to work in unless you were in management. Work place safety, 40 hour work week, disability, child labor laws and a host of other things the Democratic Party delivered to America turned all that around and gave us the strong middle class that grew throughout the 40's, 50's, 60's and seventies and then came trickle down (not) economics and the attack on labor unions. But if your a 1%er.......................

    Why shouldn't they be? It's not as though the American people aspire to a higher level of virtue. People in the media are all members of the body politic, and there is no reason for them to be any better than the rest of us.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I would assume that this is because paranoid schizophrenics are not their target audience.
