So conservatives who own the media place profits above truth and then other conservatives complain that the media is unfair. Interesting idea. This assumes that liberal news makes more money than conservative news.
but the conservatives tell us they represent the majoiry in america. If that is the case then wouldn't conservative news make even more?
If liberal news makes more money then more liberals watch it and since most americans watch tv it would seem that the majority of americans are liberal.
So which is it? Conservatives tolerate liberal news because it makes more money because there are more liberals
or this is all a lot of bull and the media is not liberal.
Jeffjoe – I believe it is because liberalism makes money. Liberals love to hear their views voiced and conservatives love to hear anything they can argue and attempt to refute.
In the early stages of ‘yellow journalism’ media moguls learned that the populace enjoyed hearing stories of sensationalism. The easiest target for sensationalism in this country is the government – hence the attacks on the present administration and past administrations.
As a republican I do believe that FoxNews is more right-winged, both MSNBC and CNN I see as left-winged.
As a side note – I believe I must be the only republican on this board! However, finding a military member, other than Wesley Clark (and 2 year service man John Kerry), who is not a republican is hard to do!
