    They have lots of time, money and plenty of resources. It is the motivation that is the problem.

    Main stream media now exists to further the propaganda objectives of their corporate masters.

    They now view this objective as supporting the corrupt Bush administration.

    This means either whitewashing the Republican's evil deeds or going after the Democrats like a pack of rabid dogs.

    Currently the entire objective is to distract people from the myriad of real issues that an informed public needs to be debating to save a free society. It's the old "watch the birdy, keep your eye on the birdy," while the accomplice picks your pocket.

    That is why they plaster the screen with eyecandy and neglect to seriously address the major issues.

    The goal is to such all the air out of the room. What a mighty Wurlitzer it has become.

      newspaper, it's still more profitable for you to cover info-tainment than it is to do investigative journalism of current events and the powers active in your region.

      It's cheaper to produce, it's easier to sell to sponsors, and it's easier to tailor to consumer demand.

      There's no provision in the American system for a free journalistic press. The framers presumed that only government would suppress it. It was a great idea in many ways but sorry, they're flat wrong. The economy has no need for it in this age.
