    for using accurate terminology.  I'm talking about the "C" word:  

    Corporate media
    .

    I also like the phrase corporate media infotainment.

    That's what they are and until ALL progressives learn to identify the perpetrators accurately, we're not going to go very far.  In the days of the Roberts court, the Citizens United decision, it is critical to get this right.  In a country in which corporations are granted the same status as natural persons, this is important to have some awareness about this.

    The 14th amendment, that was  designed to strengthen the rights of African Americans was twisted and used by railroad robber barons to give corporations the same status as natural persons.

    It's the CORPORATE MEDIA.

    It's not the TV, the MSM, traditional media, the papers...

    Unfortunately, i t is human nature to take information sources for granted.  Information is as basic as the air we breathe and we're not always aware of it.  When we talk about "facts" we are seldom aware of how our minds were introduced to those "facts" and how our minds latched on to certain memes.

    I'm not liberal. I'm actually just anti-evil, OK? - Elon James White
