73. "The media is as liberal as it's corporate masters."
However, I will take KO, Maddow and Shultz anytime over what Faux is spewing. Yes, they still are controlled by their corporate masters, but apparently, since those corporate masters got what they wanted (neverending war to make mucho buckos) some, I mean some, are allowing the "little people" to have a sounding board, like KO and Maddow, to identify with said outrage. I appreciate that KO has beating the war drums (even when * was still in office) how we are losing our freedoms, how they were going against the Constitution, how they tortured. But, those corporate masters drowned anyone out who questioned going to war with Iraq, questioned what really happened on 9/11, questioned the swift boat liars. They give access when they feel that their goals have been achieved, then take it away.

Now not all of the populace have access to MSNBC, so it does less damage to the powers that be, unlike Faux. Faux is a very dangerous network, I believe. How many of the populace realized that Faux won a court case determining that they can LIE to the American public? I have been at the automotive center, a bar and even the hospital waiting room, with nothing but a FAUX station on. We, the people, should have been not only boycotting, but protesting such a station a long, long time ago. And, their talking heads, were and still are nothing but * cheerleaders (or Cheney), catapulting the neo-con agenda-spreading fear and ignorance to the general population. A complicit media has done more damage to this country, than I think some of the politicians. Why do I say this? Because a corrupt politician cannot get elected without the access and endorsement of the media. It is the media who can make a mountain out of a molehill and vice versa. Before * was selected how did the media treat his alleged insider trading, his military record, his other business dealings, his investigations, I believe, that were happening at the time of his campaigning (Federal investigations into his head of Dept. of Labor and Dept of Housing) two departments that he directly appointed. What we heard over and over again was Gore was a liar (see how easy it was for those in the media to fabricate that Gore stated he invented the internet) and * was a man of God, a man ya'll just wanted to have a beer with. And, why do most of the populace have certain perceptions, because the media and PR firms SELL the illusion to us for the corporate master's agenda.
