3. A monopolistic conglomerate owned corporate media dependent on selling commercials

to major corporations is saturated with conflict of interest just by the nature of their business model.

Even if individual journalists or newscasters wanted to tell you the unvarnished truth, they would be greatly limited by their corporate owners and million dollar commercial buying clients.

The underlying message from the corporate media, no matter which "team" they're rooting for is that mega corporations and plutocrats should rule over the people as a natural state of being, it's just a matter of whether that media outlet presents this as a hard or soft sell.

Thanks for the thread, Jamaal.
