I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW
After the 1996 Telecommunications Act was signed by Bill Clinton, it didn’t take long for 50+ mainstream media corporations to be gobbled up by five. Thus Mainstream media is controlled by these five corporations. It was obvious to anyone who had not drunk the Kool-Aid served by the DNC and Liberal Media establishment, that all had become one. One Anti-Trump, pro-Hillary, pro-democratic party agenda news. All of them. MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN, NYT, WP, Huffington, WSJ, ABC, NPR et. al. With the exception of conservative Fox News. Why? I think it was a strategic move if all mainstream media was Liberal, Hillary, and Anti-Trump, how would the 50% of Americans who voted for President Trump react. How would Congress react? Fox was the bone thrown to the deplorables.
Of course, many of us called out the fake news, lying news, biased news, no credibility news. Simply because your candidate and party’s agenda can’t be correct 100%, and the opposition wrong, evil, bad 100%. Thus the mainstream media drank more Kool-Aid and must have laughed their way through producing the trash they have fed us for over a year. It’s totally incredible that 90% had been manipulated to speak with one agenda voice. Of course, we’re talking about Corporations, not the Fourth Estate of Democracy. It is no more. The collusion is striking.
President Trump’s FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai, has without a doubt set out to right this wrong with another wrong. Granny always said; “Jimmy, two wrongs don’t make a right.” It may make an Alt-Right though. He isn’t taking on the mainstream media’s bias but has paved the way for your local news to become conservative, Pro-Trump news. He’s kicked aside a few FCC requirements like your local news must have it’s studio in your area. Goodbye, weatherman, you can trust, who visits the local schools and makes corny jokes. Hello, the merger of Sinclair Broadcasting and Tribune media.
Sinclair Broadcasting is very conservative if the merger is approved, 70% of your local news will be owned by Sinclair. His company has “must air” content that all his stations must broadcast when it is released on the local news. So now conservatives may be able to watch FOX and their local Sinclair news and thumb their nose at the liberal corporate media in their tall towers in NY, DC, and Atlanta. I’m still going to miss the weatherman in his suspenders.
