1. I dont know about MSMBC but MSNBC has some excellent journalism and good people on it

Especially Chris, Rachel and Lawrence.

But understanding what journalism is and is not is key in this observation.

Understanding the world, too.

6. Who owns MSNBC?

 

Journalism is not being owned by a corporation that is legal obligated to maximize shareholder value. You can't serve two masters.

7. I stream RT and watch Ed Schultz, Thom Hartman and many other good shows.

 

Unlike US corporate news, RT actually provides world news that many Americans are clueless about. Watching the Hawks and Redacted Tonight are really good shows too.

13. Free Speech TV is superior IMO. No corporate board or editorial

board room interferes with content.

This is better:



The Powell Memo (also known as the Powell Manifesto)

The Powell Memo was first published August 23, 1971

Introduction

In 1971, Lewis Powell, then a corporate lawyer and member of the boards of 11 corporations, wrote a memo to his friend Eugene Sydnor, Jr., the Director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The memorandum was dated August 23, 1971, two months prior to Powell’s nomination by President Nixon to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Powell Memo did not become available to the public until long after his confirmation to the Court. It was leaked to Jack Anderson, a liberal syndicated columnist, who stirred interest in the document when he cited it as reason to doubt Powell’s legal objectivity. [font color="green"]Anderson cautioned that Powell “might use his position on the Supreme Court to put his ideas into practice…in behalf of business interests.”[/font color]

Though Powell’s memo was not the sole influence, the Chamber and corporate activists took his advice to heart and began building a powerful array of institutions designed to shift public attitudes and beliefs over the course of years and decades. The memo influenced or inspired the creation of the Heritage Foundation, the Manhattan Institute, the Cato Institute, Citizens for a Sound Economy, Accuracy in Academe, and other powerful organizations. Their long-term focus began paying off handsomely in the 1980s, in coordination with the Reagan Administration’s “hands-off business” philosophy.

Most notable about these institutions was their focus on education, shifting values, and movement-building — a focus we share, though often with sharply contrasting goals.* (See our endnote for more on this.)

So did Powell’s political views influence his judicial decisions? The evidence is mixed. [font color="green"]Powell did embrace expansion of corporate privilege and wrote the majority opinion in First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti, a 1978 decision that effectively invented a First Amendment “right” for corporations to influence ballot questions.[/font color] On social issues, he was a moderate, whose votes often surprised his backers.

There's much more (ask somebody about Alex Carey). But it's how people can better believe the hypocrisy as normal.
