WHAT IF MSNBC WAS LIKE FOX NEWS?
Whichever television station you rely on for your political news, at least we know that currently you can get a “conservative” version, Fox News, and a “liberal” version, MSNBC. We put those two terms in quotes because it is easily arguable that how both stations report the news is neither conservative or liberal. Regardless of your perspective, at least currently you can check out the other station to see what the “other side” is saying. One thing that both stations have in common is that they are both owned by corporate behemoths. You would think that their corporate interests would be the same: to skew their political coverage in order to help politicians get elected that would work for them to keep their taxes rock bottom, pass their favorite social agenda and generally help them increase their power. Imagine, if you’re a conservative, that you wake one day to find every station is like MSNBC, or if a liberal, every station is like Fox News. “Scary”, is the response we get the most. The power the media has is underestimated and dangerous. Never stop researching on your own, forget what you think you already know and watch your sources.
