Rupert Murdoch is left-wing ? - I don't think so !

So it has been ever since Franklin Delano Roosevelt "packed" the Federal Communications Commission in the 1930s. At that time radio was the place where the innovation, growth, excitement and money was at. It was the growth industry of the '30s and the big newspapers and publishing houses all owned radio stations. FDR yanked FCC licenses from yokels and enemies and handed them out to his Democrat friends - NBC and CBS were his particular favorites. Newspapers took the hint and their owners kept and got more FCC licenses. Lyndon Johnson, as a congressman from Texas, got rich on radio stations/licenses handed to him by FDR's flunkies at the FCC. Ideological nepotism persists in network newsrooms and journalism schools to this day.


It's very easy, as The Donald has demonstrated, to downgrade anything you don't agree with and then put a dismissive label on it to pigeonhole it and forget about one thing that has no side of politics: THE TRUTH.

So let's examine truth in media for a moment. Faux Noize was created to purposely spin any small grain of truth wildly out of control to the right, so all the dolts looking on at home who are not satisfied with normal media can nod and agree with what they already think, regardless of veracity. The truth has taken a backseat to sensationalist hogwash that excites the masses and gets them posting more hogwash on social media because they're not smart enough to think for themselves and delineate the actual truth hidden in the bullshit.

So along comes candidate Trump, spouting ridiculous slander about his opponents and ignoring factual truth in favor os crass sensationalism. Did he steal this tactic from the media, which can say nearly everything askew of actual reality in the name of selling commercial time? Sticking with the girl he came with, President Trump continues to puke lies, half truths, and self-aggrandizement and his idiot minions and followers ring like tuning forks. How often does a lie require repeating until it becomes accepted as truth? Not very often, evidently. Please post a link from one of your political bloggers that refutes this. I'm sure it's already been printed.

Danno -

In addition to charging too much, cartels and monopolies miss market segments.
Eighty years later, the licenses granted to the Left by FDR's packed FCC remain in the hands of the Left.
The rise of cable TV broke that ideological oligopoly because FCC does not license cable.
Real competition - of political content - entered the scene. No longer one sided.
That is why Fox is successful. Fox feeds a demand that the leftists of the MSM starved for seven decades.

That's also why Trump won. Neither Republicans or Democrats were serving the interests of "flyover country," especially the blue collar "rust belt." That's why so many union blue collar voters went for Trump. Further, Blacks in the "rust belt" states stayed home, refused to vote for Clinton.

I am 75 years of age and retired. If I learned only one thing during my working life, it is that 'the system runs on bullshit'. Once you understand that, your expectations are not so high. If you look at the media and the advertising industry, it is all based on LIES. More journalists are employed by politicians than in the media ? However there is a way to handle the situation. Risk can be assessed in terms of likelihood and potential consequences. 'Likelihood' is an expression of probability. Often it is possible to detect LIES by recognising the agenda. Also body language and speech patterns are often a give-away. The problem with the latter is the sometimes liars believe their own bullshit. With experience, it is probably possible to know when ANYONE is telling lies.

There is one thing to remember about Donald Trump - 'life is a learning experience'. America will learn about VALUES.

here we go again with the name calling from someone that has the opportunity to register to vote but resorts to childish playground antics instead of offering something constructive. i took the time to LISTEN to him friday and most of what he stated makes good sense, protect OUR borders, lower tax's on corp's to bring JOB'S back ( you do know we have the highest corp tax rate) , simplify the tax code, repeal and replace obama care, ( insurance co. are leaving it instead of going broke ) to name a few things. what can you contribute other than name calling ?

I can't help thinking the Prez declaring war on the press, and calling them names, is not a good sign.
And precisely what you accuse Frank of doing. ?!!
If he doesn't get them on board, or learn how to handle them, then this is going to be a rough time.

Oddly, Mr Pence got good press internationally with his visits to Sth Korea, Japan, etc.
Seemed very sensible, and made all the right noises in all the right places.

Correction, Windy Bill. I DON'T have the opportunity to vote since I'm not a US citizen, but an alien immigrant (British).

you would have IF you got your citizenship. you have been here for how many years ( from your post I am guessing over 40 ) and refuse to participate. IMHO that makes you a taker. you came for a better life so why do you refuse to become a citizen, is it because you still want to be able to go back to take from GB,s free medical with out paying for it also. if so it just proves my point. YOU ARE A TAKER.

Actually, almost 50 years. Why I choose not to become a US citizen is nobody's business but mine. Incidentally neither my wife or our two older daughters emigrated with us have changed either.

Myob!
