13. I agree with your post, but...


I contend that making money is obviously a priority or they wouldn't be in business. The cable news networks we have now are no where near progressive/liberal. The cable news networks we have now as I stated in my previous post, have fired news anchors who were their most popular money makers. They fired them because they strayed from the corporate right wing narratives.

Today there is an audience for a real cable news network that is progressive. Tom Steyer should spend his money creating a real progressive network whose priority is not putting a liberal slant on everything but in truth telling. Phil Donahue, Keith Olbermann and Dylan Ratigan were fired by msnbc because they told the truth, not because they were liberal or because they weren't making msnbc money.

I'm not just picking on msnbc. The NY Times and Wa.Post went way overboard in covering the caravan nonsense, their coverage has dropped since the election but they are still covering it. When will they call the caravan out for what it was/is, a political stunt meant to fire up the right wing base. 220 million dollars wasted sending our military to the border should be the narrative.

C'mon Tom Steyer start up a real liberal cable news network with real truth telling anchors like Charlie Pierce, Stephanie Miller, Bill Press, and yes even Thom Hartmann. There is an audience for truth tellers.

Remember Helen Thomas? Who was a vanguard for women journalists, who was feared by Democratic and Republican presidents alike. Remember Helen who asked W. why did you really go into Iraq, was it for oil or for Israel? JFK said about Helen, "she would be a nice girl if she'd ever get rid of that pad and pencil."
