These guys get paid pretty big bucks and this is what they do all day. Real journalism is just too tough for them I guess

have the corporate media eager to bury Biden in favor of a more corporate friendly president, even if that means Trump. But I expect that establishment Republicans will try to put forward one of their own in place of Trump, especially as Trump's legal problems increase.

They hope that an establishment Republican can draw Independents, other Republicans who don't like Trump, and Dems who will turn away from Biden over Israel. The media will be happy to help establishment Republicans win over Biden

Corporations do not like Bidenomics, especially the part about making corporations and the wealthy pay their share of taxes. Trump gives them tax breaks. Trump also gives them ratings with his performances.

That’s why I don’t pay attention. The media is supposed to report news..not make it. Sadly, everything is about the bottom line, the spread sheet and if that’s policy, no wonder we’re in such a mess and people think tfg is gonna be better?

Right before the elections there will be over the top coverage by all media of the "bad" economy and people will buy the BS since they choose to be ignorant and stay misinformed. This is the same old, same old.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$...this is what is driving all of the media to make BS claims. They have and will ALWAYS do this. They get $$$$$ to antagonize the general public and create issues and divides that do not even exist and inflame issues that are minor. The media is our enemy!!!! As well as the billionaires who benefit from its profits.

Americans are dumber than dirt, have the memory of a house fly, believe everything they read and everything they hear from any source.

Americans are pissed off over the abortion issue and that is what drove the last elections....no Red Wave!!! The new nazi-Speaker of the House has given Dems a gift as far as that goes and the Senate knows it. However, the media will be able to get more and more money by blowing this whole thing out of proportion (as usual).
