5. As you probably already know,
The reason of course is that we're not dealing with old fashioned "journalistic integrity" anymore. The truth has a Liberal bias but the media isn't Liberal... it's corporate and corporate is mostly "conservative". Sadly most of the the MSM is owned by corporations and those corporations are owned/run by people who are mostly Republicans, whose soul purpose is to make money... not small money from selling real news/ads... but BIG money for their main corporations like GE, etc.

Here's what Gore Vidal said about Corp Media at the very end of the clip around 1 1/2 yrs ago or so (bolding mine... I think he nailed it with this comment especially)...
When our media does not want to make money out of news, corruption is complete. You would think that that was something totally against nature, you don't want to sell papers, you don't want to sell washing machines or whatever you're selling on television. You don't want to go against what the owners of the country want and they don't want bad news of this sort and the don't want people to really know about these things."
