41. Bad career move by Chelsea, working for corpo-fascist media moguls...

...who have, a) destroyed journalism, and b) helped destroy our democracy and our economy.

Can't avoid the stench of privilege either. Would she be doing "color" for the NBCons if she wasn't the Clinton's daughter? Maybe. But probably not. In any case, she has seriously risked that a lot of people will see it that way--that she aced many poor, unprivileged young journalists out of a job because she has a famous name. If she wants a career with the corpo-fascist media, fine. You go, girl! But if she wants to springboard from one of the destroyers of democracy into elected office, frankly I don't think she can represent ME, and I would have trouble voting for her, knowing that the NBCons gave her a leg up. Why, would be my question. Why would one of these evil media monopolies jumpstart her career?

As for the NBCons getting all huffy about the perception of bias, it's just laughable. They lost legitimacy as journalists a long time ago--threw it away for war profiteering and 1%er propaganda. They aren't gonna get it back by banning Chelsea's ads on gay rights.

Some upthread posters ask, Do we want NBC to be Faux News where the line between journalism and advocacy has been erased and everything they broadcast is far rightwing "Big Lie" propaganda? I don't think these posters realize how far gone ALL corporate media is, in this country, nor how wrong it is that those who brought us the Bush Junta and the War on Iraq control our PUBLIC airwaves, not to mention print newspapers, books, magazines, movies, TV shows and radio stations, conglomerated with the weapons industry and other evildoers such as the financial industry.

We are the most disinformed, brainwashed people in the world. The corporate media is WHY. And their pretensions about objectivity are not just a joke, they are a disaster. That people are beginning to understand the bias of Faux News is encouraging. But that many people still believe in the "objectivity" of NBC News or the New York Slimes or the Associated Pukes is disastrous. It means they can lead us right off the cliff into more wars, into more stolen elections, and into yet more massive looting by the rich, while the very planet we live on is destroyed
