That Darn Liberal Media
BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
We have one, two, and sometimes three radio stations in every town and city, many operating 24 hours a day, that actively promote Republicans and the Republican agenda.
There are from one to nine religious fundamentalist radio stations in every town and city, most directly or indirectly broadcasting the Republican agenda.
Most of the music radio stations are owned and operated by two or three Republican corporations who use their stations to support the Republican agenda when choosing news, commentary, disk jockeys and play lists.
In virtually every city and town in America there are zero radio stations which actively promote Democrats and the Democratic agenda.
We have a national television news network, with local affiliates in virtually every market, which actively promotes Republicans and the Republican agenda.
There are zero national television news networks that promote the Democratic agenda.
We have a 24-hour cable news network that actively promotes Republicans and the Republican agenda. The other cable news networks are Republican owned and operated.
In American there are zero Liberal cable television news networks that actively support and promote Democrats and the Democratic agenda.
ABC, NBC, and CBS, the big three broadcast networks, are Republican owned and operated.
In America there are zero national broadcast networks that are owned and operated by Democrats and who support the Democratic agenda.
In most towns and cities we have one, sometimes two, local newspapers. Almost all newspapers are Republican owned and operated, and endorse and frequently promote Republican candidates.
There are zero large newspapers and only a handful of medium-small newspapers scattered around the country that actively support Democrats and the Democratic agenda.
In every medium virtually all news for at least the last two decades has been Republican filtered and spun propaganda, sometimes subtle, sometimes blatant.
And yet, the Republicans must constantly lie about their agenda to get public support and get it passed into law.
And yet, Al Gore won the 2000 presidential election by over 500,000 votes and Republicans had to stage a coup d'etat to take power.
And yet, the country is still a 45-45 split between Democrats and Republicans.
