MSM & Profuse RW Lies ~ The Class War on the Radio Silence Front
Even though MSM is owned by the 1% and it shows, they try to be cool about it. Fox Lies is a news network of RW Propaganda, an act of treason 30 years ago. And RW Hate and Lie 24/365/every city is comparable to global warming or the rise of autism.
Bottom line: We are an UNDER INFORMED (propagandized) populace and electorate!!!
That said, there have been rescue attempts that seem to have gone unnoticed:
After the insidious commercialization and conservative-ation of NPR, Air America Radio finally came to the rescue in 2004 starting on KPOJ and quickly spreading nationally, coast to liberal coast. Finally the push back and truth against the bias and lies coming from MSM and RW Radio that NPR was banned from uttering. Pitifully, many seemed to have missed its six year run. Lack of promotion and administrative mismanagement killed AAR in 2010: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_America_%28radio_network%29 .
Fortunately the affiliate radio stations kept airing the shows, and they still do TODAY! At least some still do: http://www.randirhodes.com/pages/affiliates.html
Two days after the re-election of our first Black POTUS, Clear Channel/Bane Capital canceled the "Plymouth Rock of Progressive Talk," Portland, Oregon's AM 620 KPOJ. In a matter of seconds, during Randi Rhodes' show, it switched to 24/365 FOX SPORTS for "business reasons." Two moths later Seattle's Progressive Talk AM 1090 KPTK switched to 24/365 CBS SPORTS... for business reasons! Searching the list of Prog-Talk stations across the nation, more than half have been "canceled" for business reasons.
Our media, our news is processed. First through corporate ownership interests, then through commercial value, then through POLITICAL ramifications. But the airwaves are ours (We The People), and journalism is THE only Constitutionally protected trade.
We are busy trying to survive and have some fun.
Aren't we being ripped off?
Where are people getting their info?
When the people don't know, then it is OK!
