Default What liberal media?

Is there really such a thing as a liberal media? The reporters and journalists may be liberals but they're not the ones who decide what's aired to the public. Editors and station owners have to walk the line or their advertising would dry up. Maybe someone can convince me otherwise? Now on non economic issues such as gay marriage, gun control, immigration. These will get reported and this is where conservative pro corporate democrats can act liberal to their hearts content. These issues don't affect one way or the other, the direction our country's inequality of wealth is continuously shifting in favor of the billionaires and corporations. Obama has completed some trade deals started by bush. He would like to shove the worse than Nafta, Transpacific Partnership through by fast track, meaning no public notoriety or debate in the congress or senate. He's been working on this for years. Does anybody read or hear about this in the so called liberal media?

The very first thing I read from Daily Kos shows how wacky they are...

Here's what they write...

Quote:
1. Where the jobs went.

Outsourcing (or offshoring) is a bigger contributor to unemployment in the U.S. than laziness.

Since 2000, U.S. multinationals have cut 2.9 million jobs here while increasing employment overseas by 2.4 million. This is likely just the tip of the iceberg as multinational corporations account for only about 20% of the labor force.

When was the last time you saw a front-page headline about outsourcing?
This spounds nice, but if they ACTUALLY listened to the media, you'd find that they repeat (over and over and over again) Obama's laughable statistic that he's created over EIGHT MILLION jobs under his administration...And NEVER met with skepticism from the press...

Quote:
CARNEY: Jon, as I think you know, when we talk about the monthly jobs reports, we always begin with the fact that whether it exceeds expectations or comes in below expectations, that there is more work to do. This report is no different. What it does represent is 46 consecutive months of private sector jobs creation. 8.2 million jobs over that period.
Where's someone on the networks saying "Hey dip****! You're not counting the people who stopped looking for work!!!!...Over 300,000 in this month ALONE!"...

Think you're gonna see that out of Schiffer's,William's or Lauer's mouth anytime soon?...

Of course not...Dissent from the master will be met swiftly...

Yeah, but their liberal producers, directors, and superiors decide what goes on the f*cking air.

Is this thread for real? Is there a liberal media? It's not even a good troll thread. Try harder next time.
