    to follow Rachel Maddow's reports is smart enough to make their own decisions about what other media they also expose themselves to.  I don't think I get sucked into the "tv machine" (Rachel's term) tractor beam and loose all my intellect and ability to discern. I expose myself to multiple news sources.

    Some people might be insulted by the insinuation that's we are sheeple being manipulated.  I agree that we all have to be aware that it is corporate media by it's nature.  But then again I work for my husband's S-corp, have a car, a mortgage, kids in college.  I watch some tv, make art, enjoy nature.  I make choices everyday and don't feel like I have no control over my thoughts or behaviors.
