20. Many of our networks are owned by corporations with investments in Arms manufacturing

 

and Wall Street and it shows. Anyone who disagreed with the Iraq war and other military conflicts is persona non grata in the American media. Anyone who doesn't agree with privatization of schools and social security or is a critic of free trade, might as well not exist as far as the major news networks are concerned. Climate change and poverty are ignored in favor of grotesque personalities like Trump and ambulance chaser stories, not to mention stories designed to sell products. Important issues are rarely covered in favor of bullshit. Fox news is owned by a right winger who promotes international austerity, in every country he own a press, yet you don't notice. There is not a complete blackout of the Bernie Sanders campaign on Sputnik like there is in the American media. I am guessing most here would enjoy sputnik much more than the bullshit in cnn, fox and now msnbc. There is no objectivity and the American media is the shittiest in the world.
