Liberal Media is killing me

I start my day with Bill Press at 5am. I drive all day and am fortunate enough to listen to WCPT. That's Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Wayne Besen, and Norman Goldman. I might catch Rachel on MSNBC. But it doesn't matter. 24/7 echo chamber. Same programming from 5am to 9pm CT. Despite his flaws, Ed was alone talking about jobs, jobs, jobs. When polled, Jobs happen to be America's #1 issue.

Why are jobs in their blind spot? Don't any of them follow Robert Reich? I try to stay on top of economic trends like the job killing, tax evading "air" "sharing" Uber/Amazon gig economy but the liberal media isn't to be found. It's going to happen: Jeff Bezos has a huge stake in Uber. Those two will merge. Then they'll gobble up Airbnb and the other air companies. Nick Hanauer says Amazon didn't create jobs, it killed 1 million jobs. In 2014, already valued at $41 billion, Uber had 550 Full Time employees. Where is the liberal media? Stephanie Miller and Thom Hartmann of all people talk favorably about Uber regularly. There's a complete disconnect. Miller doesn't have the chops but Hartmann hasn't done his homework. At least Goldman and Besen blast the gig economy.

Liberal media tried so hard to be the opposite of Fox News. It should have higher goals.

Small wonder why no one talks about jobs when your parent's stock prices (and also those who reside on the parent's board of directors) depend on cost-cutting.
