  •  of course they do--just as they dominate politics (1+ / 0-)

    The media sells us what we want to see.  Both of our parties are conservative, conservatism dominates our political system.  The media gives us what we want to see. Much as we might not like to hear it, progressives are not a majority view (which is why we're not even taken seriously by our own party).

    If we were a progressive left country with a majority liberal view, we'd see Bernie Sanders on TV every night--and the media wouldn't care.  All they want is for you to watch them so they can sell advertising time. If they can sell you corn flakes watching Bernie Sanders instead of John McCain, that's fine with them.  (shrug)
