    ...I've said it a million times: The Corporate Media is NOT in persuit of balance!

    ...the media, in its misguided pursuit of balance...

    They have an AGENDA. When you say they are misguided in their "pusuit of balance," you give them a big, warm,  fuzzy PASS.

    Please stop saying it. Snark or no snark. It gives your readers a pass too in not facing up to what our Corporate Media has really become: a Right-Wing Extremist Propaganda Outlet--fully self-aware, fully Intentional.

      It doesn't have a single thing to do with "Media Laziness" either. Come ON. These people are anything BUT lazy. I should think it takes and Extraordinary Stamina to convince millions of people to fight tooth and nail against their own self interest. Think about it.

        had considerable fear of the intelligence of Americans, that they'd invest the billions maybe trillions in creating such a massive propaganda environment generation after generation.

          ...because they know we have the facts on our side. The only way for them to win is to lie...and to Lie Big. Dismantling our educational system has helped them "catapult the propaganda." That was no accident.
