Quote from HM-8404
Before you start quoting 4thestate for statistics and facts I suggest you look at the entire website objectively. The site is an ultra left-wing liberal site. Worse than the Huffington Post. Nobody would consider them a credible source. Repeating what they say as fact would be like repeating what the KKK says as fact. They both have agendas. Besides this website is a British website that is owned by a company that was once owned by Rupert Murdoch.
"The 4th Estate's parent company, Global News Intelligence, provides similar influence analysis services for government and Fortune 500 companies." Just like the KKK?
Is the Huffington Post worse than Fox News?
Is there a particular statistic on the page you referenced faulty? Or do you dismiss it simply based on your opinion of source that compiled the statistics?
In reality the news, at least cable news, cares little about conveying information, or news. They want to attract viewers so they can sell advertising. If Fox News runs a story criticizing Gabby Douglas for not dressing as an American flag, or fanning the flames of Obama birtherism, they stir controversy and attract even more high-fiving views. The owners of the news outlets, almost all large corporations, are laughing all the way to the bank. (Corporations can laugh, since their people too, as Mitt Romney and the Supreme Court said.)
The news you get is almost completely from corporate sources. That is what the MSM is. Guys in suits with fiduciary responsibilities to shareholders. Good luck running a democracy on that.
