"We need to take back the media"
We need to take back the media
[Remove the muzzle that keeps Keith Olbermann silent!]
But how? We need to take back the control of the message of the media.
[Yeah, like SeeBS is constantly pushing conservatism...in the Alternate Universe.]
Either the government would have to regulate the partisan activities of the media, which isn't likely to happen or they would have to be paid more money than they now are getting from Republicans to cease their partisan political activity and that would take more money that the Dems could raise.
[Note the REAL goal here: government control of the media. For the DUmmies the leftwing media doesn't tilt Bolshevik enough for them.]
I think the first step is that we need to win the war of soundbites because we have been losing the war of soundbites to Republicans for decades.
[Gee. It couldn't be because your message SUCKS?]
Repukes somehow find ways to get their talking points perceived by average Joe Blow voter in the manner they want them perceived. Democrats have never learned how to play this game. We either don't dumb down our message enough or we don't do enough to explain why we do the things we do.
[Trust me. I've heard Big Ed on MSDNC and your message is truly DUmb.]
The only way to take back the media is to overthrow Capitalism.
[A DUmmie gets to the real TRUTH of the problem.]
Capitalism is full of flaws. But strictly measured as overall prosperity creator, nothing else comes close.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
The media are controlled by wealthy, corporate interests. They control what pablum they wish to spoon feed to you as news. They also give you 20 minutes of commercials every hour. So, if you don't accept "news" coverage that skips important controversy, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. You have to change to make the media change.
