I want the medias to be independant from BOTH THE STATE AND THE COMPANY BOSSES, this is the ony way to preserve the freedom of the press.
In our right-wing/fascist oligarchies like in the marxist-leninist dictatorships the only ones who pay taxes are those who don't finance the elections and don't pay commission/bribes to the politicians. The company bosses like jeff bezos don't pay any tax.
Why aren't the taxes managed for people's interest in so many countries?
- Because of the evil villain state?
- because any psychopath can usurp the power like in a marxist-leninist country? because of the absence of financial transparency? because of rigged elections since all the parties don't have the same financing?
We ostensibly have freedom of the press here in the US, however, most news outlets, regardless of what media they use, are parts of a very few conglomerates. The number of truly 'independent' outlets is vanishingly small. And each conglomerate has their own bias as well. It is evidenced by what news they report, and the manner in which they report it. And that is inevitably geared toward supporting what THEY believe are the 'facts'...... They exclude information that doesn't support their position. Read an article about some particular topic on MSNBC, then, read an article about the same bit of news on someplace like Fox News, and it almost seems like they are reporting on two unrelated events.... Accuracy doesn't seem to matter any more either. Look what happened to Tom Brokaw. In their rush to be "The First" to break a story, that didn't bother to fact check at all, and the story turned out to be completely false..... It is no longer about reporting news, it's about ratings. Doesn't seem to matter if they have the story straight, it just needs to be pushed out there, before someone else beats them to it.
Another example.... A few years back, an airliner botched a landing, clipped a fence, and had a somewhat less than successful landing.... It was on the news within an hour. There are youtube clips of it out there, where the talking head was talking about the pilot... Wi Tu Lo..... and the co-pilot... Sum Ting Wong...... and he actually reported that with a straight face....... I was floored. How could someone NOT realize that those are not something made up by the good folks on the internet as JOKES??????
Nope. The news media is not what it once was. Their priorities have changed dramatically, and accurate, unbiased reporting, no longer exists. Its all social outrage, and drama now. Simply not worth watching.
