Letter: Press dismisses Ron PaulSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Sun, 05/27/2012 - 09:42
ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News and others in the mainstream media distribute their selective “information” to the American public about all things governmental, political, business, sports, entertainment and sensational.
These are collectivist companies that are not part of the fabric of the free, open and independent market for the dissemination of information to the public.
The corporatism of this mainstream media has a socialistic flavor resulting from its most favored status with the various agencies of the federal government, together with a cabal of advertising patrons consisting of investment banks, insurance companies political parties and the like.
This is all so unfortunate, since the altruism of true journalism is trumped by social and political agenda or the bottom line of a P&L. The resulting carnage is a dumbed down, misinformed public, and an electorate that opts for an extant slate of presidential candidates consisting only of Obama and Romney (collectivists if ever there were any).
ABC (Walt Disney Corp. et al), NBC (GE et al), CBS (Westinghouse, Viacom et al), and Fox News (News Corp., Rupert Murdock et al) all profess to report the news in a fair, impartial and balanced manner.
Nothing could be further from the truth, since they all represent an establishment that has disenfranchised the American people from the electoral process of what should be the earmark of a democratic republic.
