12. They would risk losing advertisers.

To some, the radical left are people who don't burn crosses in people's yards. They spend all their breath moaning about "Socialism", without knowing its true meaning.

The reality is that even stop signs are socialist because anyone can use them. I just wonder if the anti-mask, anti-vaccine, anti-seatbelt, suicidal Teabillies even do that.

19. I do not believe that. No advertiser is going to pull their product for a network

NOT using the words "radical left". BS

26. I wasn't thinking as high as the networks.

I live in a rural 2 station area that is highly competitive. The ABC affiliate seems to draw most of the conservatives I know, while the CBS affiliate seems to draw most of the left-leaning people I know. Our NBC affiliate is from 100 miles away and nobody I know watches their local news.

Their assumed ideologies reflect the businesses that advertise. The way each station presents the stories (including what's omitted) is also obvious to me.

24. consolidation of ownership means MSM largely complicit

The media 'consumed' by most Americans is owned by very few, very large corporations which benefit from keeping the tax cutters and de-regulators in power.

Independent, competitive news organizations do not have the reach of the conglomerates of cable and broadcast.

We need an FCC that works for us, as it was intended, rather than being a rubber stamp for mergers and acquisitions.

14. Well, Obama

was inviting far left radicals to the WH (you know, Paul McCartney, Beyonce & Jay-Z) and was determined to take away everyone's guns (weird how he failed to do that. I think the truck he was gonna be driving when he went out to seize them had a flat.)

20. This is part of Newt Gingrich's legacy.

Back in the '90s he came up with a list of negative words that conservatives should use when talking or writing about Democrats. I'm pretty sure that radical was on the list.

I don't accept the last election, and if he steals it again I won't accept this one.

29. Some of us are quite radical.

Some of us have access to many guns and ammunition - and we know how to use it - all of it.

None of us deny science, none of us refuse to accept the results of this election.

The majority of this country are going to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Please continue to get out the vote.

Some white supremacist's think they can change the trajectory of the political landscape in this country.

They are, not so sadly, wrong.

Some of us will disabuse them of this notion in a very sudden, and dramatic way.

I'll see how it goes down. If it's pretty obvious it's stolen I will be out protesting. Coronavirus be damned. And I'm an old woman

33. The only sense in which we could reasonably be considered "radical"

is "radical" means "roots" - and we do believe in the rootsa of democracy, like liberty and equality, as well as in the empathy and compassion which s needed to make democracy work.

The people calling us "radical," on the other hand, want to pull everything up by the roots and live in the hole that's left.

35. A KEEPER! This is GREAT!

As usual, OUR side is portrayed in, I guess, projection. Those accusing us of being such-and-such a way are actually the ones actively and outwardly behaving in such a way. Outward signs. In reality. Live and in living color!
