9. Let's say the big billionaire friends of SCOTUS were also big advertisers.

Let’s say they told the MSM they were not sure they would advertise if certain stories were reported on. Do you think the MSM would run those stories or give them much air time?

Let’s briefly discuss another related issue. Let’s say the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, through its Institute for Legal Reform, created courthouse newspapers (all with the word “Record” in the name, I.e. Louisiana Record, West Virginia Record, Southeast Texas Record…) for potential and current jurors to read. Let’s say these papers were put in areas considered “judicial hellholes” by the Institute for Legal Reform. Let’s say they hid their ownership of said papers and put in (off-times fabricated) pro business stories to demonstrate the unfairness of laws or prosecutions. Let’s say that these stories coincidentally matched cases going to trial where the courthouse newspaper was published for potential jurors to read before their deliberations.

We have so much big money corruption. They control our politicians with donations, our media with advertising, and us with propaganda. We have a shadow government which would explain why the will of the people is ignored routinely. Campaign finance and propaganda are the two root causes for most of our country’s problems. We need to support and back anyone who is committed to addressing these two root causes!
