metta8 said15 things everyone would know if there were a liberal media
So let me see if I got this right. A Liberal hack writing for a Liberal "media outlet" citing only other Liberal "media outlets" wants thinking people to believe that there isn't a Liberal bias in the main stream media?
Wow! Who would have ever thought such a thing?
There are so many holes in what he's written about each of the 15 things he's mentioned I wouldn't even know where to begin.
For example, he mentions wealth inequality, something I hear a lot about from the mainstream media. He tells us that 88 % of the wealth in this country is held by 20% of the people but forgets to tell us that that same 20% pay the lions share of taxes. The top 5% of earners still paid far more than the bottom 95%. The top 5% earned 31.7% of the US adjusted gross income, yet they paid 58.7% of the federal individual income taxes. (Taxfoundation.org).
Interesting that the author mentions ALEC and it's influence yet forgets to mention the influence of such Progressive organizations such as the Tides Foundation, The Open Society Institute or the PLAN (Progressive States Network, Officially called Progressive Legislative Analysis Network, formed as a Liberal counterweight to ALEC in 2005). For some reason the author failed to mention that a large part of PLAN's stated purpose is to furnish state legislatures with prewritten legislation that reflects leftist/Liberal/Progressive agendas as "models" for legislation in an attempt to gain power on a state-by-state basis. He also forgot to mention the Progressive groups that coordinated in the SoSP Project, a group of Progressive organizations that worked to get Progressives elected to Secretary-of-state positions in critical swing states such as Minnesota, the holder of this office has a key role in determining the winner in a close election and certifying the vote. ( does AL Frankin ring any bells?).
Need I go on and point out the bull laid down in each of the 15 points?
You're right Virginia, how could we have ever thought there was a Liberal bias in the main stream media? How silly of us! Thank you for exposing us to this Liberal hack, citing all Liberal sources to show us that there really is no Liberal bias in the media. I can sleep so much better now!
