    Do You Agree with this definition of "Corporate Media?"

    See definition below.

Proponents point out how media outlets are owned by big corporations and therefore in their view, it's only logical to conclude:
    1) Those corporations strongly influence what stories are presented, and how they're presented to the public, based on their own corporate interests.
    2) Since the people who sit on the boards of these big corporations tend to either vote or support republican economic policies, therefore the influence they exert must create a conservative biased media, rather than a liberal one.
    Based on those conclusions, proponents assert that not only is there no such thing as liberal bias in the media, but corporate influences have actually created a media that embraces a conservative bias. The "Corporate media" strategy, is to use the logical arguments they concocted, in order to convince people that not only is there no liberal bias in the media, but that liberal media bias couldn't possibly exist in the first place.

    The idea is to convince as many people as they can, to stop believing the liberal bias they see with their own eyes and hear with their own ears, and instead accept their logic that it really doesn't exist because the media is owned by corporations.

    The lengths some will go to prop up their political beliefs... lol

    I disagree. News is there to make money and the more sensationalist the story, the better.

    Sadly agree.
    We do have both liberal and conservative slanted "news" - if one cares to call it "news".
    We have no direct counter(that I know of) to Rush/Beck.
    But the conservatives have little to counter NPR/PBS..IMO, this news is much more truthful, its no wonder the tea-bagging conservatives wish to cut spending here...
    And its little wonder that the more advanced European nations use "government news"...
    A treat , watch German news on TV ( a public channel)....its on a digital channel..

    No.

    First the term "corporate media" has been around longer than the early 2000's. (god i can't believe I just said that..i feel old :P )

    Second it is a definition slanted heavily to make liberals sound bad and conservatives as the good guys when both are equally as bad or good as the other.

    Third the news media is about profits and influencing people to whatever cause they happen to care about the most at that current time.
