The so called "liberal media" has been the CONSERVATIVE PRESS all along

This is why each morning I see posts here like "Do you believe they just blamed the left for everything that's going wrong?" <<<------ why yes...yes I do because it gives cover to the conservatives and helps them along their way

This is why when Melanoma the former? prostitute PLAGIARIZED Michelle Obama's speech and they INVENTED a speech writer out of thin air, it wasn't investigated because it gives cover to the conservatives and helps them along their way

This is why Barack Obama's tan suit was a fucking scandal....because it gives cover to the conservatives and helps them along their way


This is why Michelle Obama's bare arms were such a pearl clutching travesty...because it gives cover to the conservatives and helps them along their way

Stop giving them your attention because it gives cover to the conservatives and helps them along their way

2. "The media is only as liberal as the conservative corporations that own it."

From a bumper sticker I once saw.

8. The link is actually correct

(it's a long chart)

These 6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America
Ashley Lutz
Jun. 14, 2012, 9:49 AM

This infographic created by Jason at Frugal Dad shows that almost all media comes from the same six sources.

That's consolidated from 50 companies back in 1983.

NOTE: This infographic is from last year and is missing some key transactions. GE does not own NBC (or Comcast or any media) anymore. So that 6th company is now Comcast. And Time Warner doesn't own AOL, so Huffington Post isn't affiliated with them.

7. The "liberal media" would never call itself the "liberal media"...

...with all the negative connotations that come with it. It doesn't compute. The term "liberal media" is a creation of conservative propaganda.

12. Corrupt by Design

The Powell Memo (also known as the Powell Manifesto)

The Powell Memo was first published August 23, 1971

Excerpt...

What Can Be Done About the Public?

Reaching the campus and the secondary schools is vital for the long-term. Reaching the public generally may be more important for the shorter term. The first essential is to establish the staffs of eminent scholars, writers and speakers, who will do the thinking, the analysis, the writing and the speaking. It will also be essential to have staff personnel who are thoroughly familiar with the media, and how most effectively to communicate with the public. Among the more obvious means are the following:

Television

The national television networks should be monitored in the same way that textbooks should be kept under constant surveillance. This applies not merely to so-called educational programs (such as “Selling of the Pentagon”), but to the daily “news analysis” which so often includes the most insidious type of criticism of the enterprise system.12 Whether this criticism results from hostility or economic ignorance, the result is the gradual erosion of confidence in “business” and free enterprise.

This monitoring, to be effective, would require constant examination of the texts of adequate samples of programs. Complaints — to the media and to the Federal Communications Commission — should be made promptly and strongly when programs are unfair or inaccurate.

Equal time should be demanded when appropriate. Effort should be made to see that the forum-type programs (the Today Show, Meet the Press, etc.) afford at least as much opportunity for supporters of the American system to participate as these programs do for those who attack it.
Other Media

Radio and the press are also important, and every available means should be employed to challenge and refute unfair attacks, as well as to present the affirmative case through these media.
The Scholarly Journals

It is especially important for the Chamber’s “faculty of scholars” to publish. One of the keys to the success of the liberal and leftist faculty members has been their passion for “publication” and “lecturing.” A similar passion must exist among the Chamber’s scholars.
Incentives might be devised to induce more “publishing” by independent scholars who do believe in the system.

There should be a fairly steady flow of scholarly articles presented to a broad spectrum of magazines and periodicals — ranging from the popular magazines (Life, Look, Reader’s Digest, etc.) to the more intellectual ones (Atlantic, Harper’s, Saturday Review, New York, etc.)13 and to the various professional journals.

15. You are most welcome. Important history from TUC Radio

Time of Useful Consciousness explains monetized mass propaganda and its impact - now more than a century in action...

Alex Carey said that the people of the US have been subjected to an unparalleled, expensive, 3/4 century long propaganda effort designed to expand corporate rights by undermining democracy and destroying the unions. Carey’s unique view of US history goes back to World War I and ends with the Reagan era.

And Part the 2nd:

The rich get richer and democracy vanishes down the Memory Hole.
