>How long will it take for Americans (and folks in most other developed countries) to finally understand that the major media is not liberal or conservative - it is corporate.  Commercialism has totally ovetaken unbiased discussion of public affairs (news).  And they feed us their propaganda constantly!  This is how they control elections.  Corporations continue their constant agenda to control government, and they are succeeding, so far.

Yes you are right.


However, it veers far more towards the Conservative aganda because corporatism doesn't much like change - therefore being reactionary it is bound to be more right wing (look at Murdoch and abominations like Fox News). They spread the term liberal media as an effective cloak to their real purpose which is to be totally illiberal. It is classic black politics - keep spreading the falsity and everybody will eventually buy into it.

That method also works. I just like to have my fact corroborated. Real tired of "pack journalism"


I guess to clarify as an example of what constitutes "fact", from reports on the war in Afghanistan, or the quakes in Christchurch, and other such events, I believe(d) that these happened of course. But as far as the attitudes and responses of people; Not to say they're wrong, but that's where people have to think about what they should consider true. It's difficult when the only story presented is the "official" version, however.

Of course not. The liberal media is of satan and anyone who listens to that BS should be put in a rubber room, not only for their own safety but for everyone else's as well. I can't wait for November. I'm ready for a new president.

3 out of 10 times you see?read something about Obama in the media: "This happened today; and now we go to President Obama's response..."

You guys keep talking about how bad Fox is..... I just might have to purchase cable/satellite TV and watch it!  (What little I see on their website is much better than ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, PBS, etc.)

Just what would you consider as Liberal media exactly? I don't watch the news often but if I do I watch ABC, CBS, and NBC news.

I just came across The Wilkow Guide to Two Way Media Perception


(I'm paraphrasing)



Education:


If you're ProRegressive, your Ivy League school is all you need to mention and that's the end of the discussion.  If your Conservative, it's the degree and your GPA that matter and will be criticized.


If you don't have an education....  If you're a conservative, you're dumb and uneducated, but if you're a ProRegressive, you're an artist or an activist.


 


Faith:


If you're ProRegressive, you're "spiritual", but conservatives are "fundamentalists" and "Bible thumpers"


 


Wealth:


If you have wealth and are a Progressive, you're "successful", but if you're a conservative, you're a cheat and greedy.


If you don't have wealth and are a ProRegressive, you're a "victim of capitalism", but if you're a conservative, you're just poor.


 


Beauty:


If you're into fashion and a ProRegressive,  you're a "trendsetter", but if you're a conservative, you're "shallow".


If you're not into fashion and a ProRegressive, you're "Natural" and an "intellectual", but conservatives are "ugly."


 


Environment / Outdoors:


If your a ProRegressive, you're an environmentalist and "earthy", but conservatives are "rednecks"


 


Time in DC:


If you've been in DC a long time an a ProRegressive, you have experience, but if you're a conservative, you've been there too long and part of the problem.


If you're new to DC and a ProRegressive, you represent "change".  Conservatives are just "inexperienced."



Rallies:


If you're participate in a ProRegressive rally, you're a demonstrator.  If you're a conservative, you're a thug.



Liberties:


If you're believe in individual liberties and a ProRegressive, you're for "choice".  Conservatives just want inequality.


 


Popularity:


If you're a ProRegressive, you're a leader that started a movement, but conservative leaders only have blind followers.


 


The Constitution:


If you're a ProRegressive that cites the Constitution, you're a civil libertarian, but Conservatives are called "close minded."

There it is. Report anything but what is in Republican Party press releases is taken as proof of "liberal bias".  Only the official versions of Herr Romney are to be considered unbiased.
