19. Left Silenced By Ownership All The Time
The left is being silenced all the time by ownership. Liberal talk was shut down in San Francisco the other day and replaced by Beck. They backtracked some but still reduced progressive talk. Washington DC is the most Democratic area in the country yet has NO progressive talk. You can drive for hundreds of mile in the midwest and there is NO progressive talk within 800 miles when I travel through from Denver to Illinois. Christian radio has bought some stations and turned off progressive radio.
The excuse is that it is not profitable in so and so markets. That is a lie. Seems like progressives are more interested in protecting the 1st amendment rights of the haters but are reluctant to defend or demand progressive talk rights. We are being silenced every single day in thousands of ways. Yet I see few defending progressive rights.
We can play this purity game all we want and we will end up with a corporate christofascist state . When 90% of the airwaves are RW hate radio and many newspapers now are RW. Include the corrupt MSM and the progressive and Democratic message goes no where.
The MSM only uses Democrats for punching bags. And Sunday TV is mostly Republican with a few token Democrats thrown in. Most of the country thinks the Affordable Care Act is a failure and a lemon because none of the message has gotten out.
You hear well Democrats do not know how to message. Well if you don't have a vehicle to get the message out you can have all the message you want and it will not matter.
Ownership in the media is deliberately silencing progressive programming. They has also succeeded in tipping PBS to the right in some subtle ways.
I don't give a damn about the 1st Amendment Rights of these bigots inciting hatred when progressive 1st Amendment rights are already being trampled on with impunity. We can play this bean bag game all we want and be right and we will and are getting our butts handed to us.
