Why is it do you think this continues to emanate in the mainstream media today? We have so many more options from which to choose now...

    Media is "for profit". This means it works for a business entity & that entity has its own agenda.

    MSNBC won't report poorly on (I think) GE

    ABC/ESPN won't say anything against Disney

    Fox... Well I can't figure them out. Are the just stupid OR are they stupid like a Fox? (Hah - I kill me)

    Getting the "scoop" depends heavily on favorability, which depends heavily on historical news concerning the entity that the station/newspaper wants the insider info from.

    Typically a news station/paper models the views of their Editor in Chief, or owner.

    It's ALL about the money.
    Same thing with "Documentaries" we see on PBS or cable tv. A documentary is produced (funded) by a person or group. That group always has an agenda. Fortunately most have an educational/historical purpose, while others attempt to re-write history.

    People in America need to learn how to think and develop opinions of their own without the need to be led around like sheep at pasture.

    It's a lot less work to be a sheep than the shepherd. It's much easier to adopt someone else's opinion than to think for yourself.
