60. What precedent has the US corporately owned media set?
US corporately owned media is all about corporate free speech which cares little about freedom of the press or freedom of speech. In fact any one who relies on corporate news such as fox for there source of information as too how they would vote in an election will vote the way the right wing corporate media wants them too vote. In effect the votes are stolen first by steeling your mind with lies, censorship, propaganda and tons of mockery too bury the truth and any progressive or liberal point of view or competition deemed unpatriotic by the ruling power starved corporate elite. If our dying democracy survives it will be because the media giants, so bloated with conflicts of interest, loose there licenses thus allowing the media and free press too be no longer beholden too a hand full of stockholders, but rather too the first amendment and the peoples right too know the truth before making a decision at the polls.
