The media decides who gets air time, who gets favorable attitudes from their reporters and anchors, who gets investigated, who gets embarrassed. You remember scream of Howard Dean, that got played and replayed, and endlessly ridiculed in the main stream media, until he had no chance of beating Kerry?
What was at the top of Dr. Dean's political agenda? Media re-regulation. Clinton and Gingrinch decimated the laws that protected us from the type of wholesale corruption we suffer now at the hands of the corporate media, leading to a stolen election, wars without end, the Patriot Act. Of course the MSM was going to use its power over public opinion to destroy the man who made it his mission to make the MSM play fair.
Joseph Goebbels said, "What you want in a media system is ostensible diversity that conceals an actual uniformity."
*This* is what I am talking about when I complain about Fox News/MSNBC "rivalry". While they point fingers in outrage at one another, their bosses are making policy, framing the debate miles away from what is important to average people, and directing our money into their investments, directly by selling us crap, and indirectly, using their influence to direct our taxes into what makes them and their friends rich. Who are their friends and sponsors? Banks. Petroleum companies. War contractors. Pharmaceutical companies!
I can't tell you this very important story as well at this film maker can. You must watch. You must share. We can't have Democracy with the MSM running amok as it is, meddling with our information, and flat out ignoring the issues that matter the most to 98% of us. They keep the everyman focused on triviality and culture war, and distracted from the degradation of our constitutional right to live without the corporations getting a cut of absolutely everything we do.
Yes, its 3 hours long. 3 short hours in the face of months and years of MSM absorption. Deprogram yourself, a few minutes at a time. That is what the pause button is for. But once it starts to sink in, you won't be able to tear yourself away. Hmm... It is embedded funny. Just go to YouTube to see it as intended. Peace!
