The New Main Stream Media-CSPAN and PBS

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE turn off CNN, FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC. These so called media are a joke. Particulary, MSNBC. I know that we have had an affinity for that channel because we feel they may be a little more in line with the opinion we want to hear, but I am convinced those guys only like hearing themselves talk.

Lest we forget this is the same media that crowned George Bush, the same media that became tools of the Bush Administration, beating the drum for war, bargaining our children's lives for exclusive em-bed. Remember the em-bed reporters who were implanted with the troops covering the war. Yes the war was big business for those who conspired and those who exploited.

Look at the news these days, how many familiar faces do we see? These people are all new faces, and remember they all advanced during the marketing of the war. We cannot and should not trust them. Remember what happened to Dan Rather, Bill Maher?  Who became popular, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly. Hannity was just some obscure loud mouth on MSNBC, now we trust MSNBC.

The media's poor coverage of these conventions are a betrayal of the American people, the people who literally put the money in their pockets. The media pimps the public, luring us in with promises of being fair and balance, honest, and the only place for politics. They use our viewership to extort money from businesses for advertisement. We feed them. This is the most important election of our time and the media is not even covering the biggest event in that election. The Convention. I remember when every channel carried the conventions, every four years along with the olympics when as Americans we understood that our television programming would be interrupted, and we reluctantly tuned in and in the end was glad we did.
