    complaining directly to big media. If every Dem/progressive would hammer them it would make a difference.

    You can't make this stuff up.

      that much is really no longer a reasonable expectation.

      You're a mere set of eyeballs which translate to revenue.  That's all. You can complain to them until your fingers fall off from writing so much. We can all do it right along with you. When you let them know you're paying attention--even if you're pissed off at them for whatever bullshit they spewed today--all they care about is that you saw it.
       

      They no longer give a damn what you think because they no longer have to. The Corporate will prop them up, now that the information market has narrowed to six total corporate-owner companies. Because they can.

      •  Yup. They don't care if the news is accurate. (0+ / 0-)

        They care if the "news division" (i.e., shows with news content) are returning profits.

        The days of the non-profit or loss-leader news were lost in the 1980s.
