If We REALLY had a Liberal Media...
This article lists fifteen facts that everyone would know if there were a liberal media.
Among other things:
ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) would be a household name — as common as “Democrat,” “Republican” or “labor union” — if we had a liberal media. We don't, so it isn't. If the media were liberal, you couldn't turn on the evening news or open a newspaper without learning and relearning that a shadowy group of corporate lobbyists (ALEC) sends out hundreds of “sample” bills to Republican legislatures, and these sample/model bills are dutifully enacted by ALEC's legislator/prostitutes. Stand Your Ground laws, voter suppression laws, Ag Gag laws making it a crime to report animal abuse at factory farms, and most union-busting legislation — you can thank ALEC for all of these laws. These laws themselves are pretty much under the public radar (which they wouldn't be if we had a liberal media), let alone the fact that these laws all rolled off the ALEC assembly line and were quietly rushed through dozens of state legislatures.
Which country has the world's largest prison population? China? Russia? You won't hear this from the liberal media, but the United States of America has 25% of the world's prisoners. We have not only the largest percentage of the world's prisoners, but the largest number as well. Think about it. China — that evil Communist police state we've been scared shitless of for decades — has five times America's population but fewer prisoners.
In a related (censored) story, also forgotten by the liberal media: African-Americans make up 13.6% of the U.S. population; but they make up 39.4% of the U.S. prison/jail population.
If there were a liberal media, everyone would know about the mass honeybee die-off, caused by colony collapse disorder. 25% of our food supply depends on pollination by bees. The most likely causes of colony collapse disorder are certain chemicals manufactured and marketed by the Chemical/Agribusiness Syndicate. This might have something to do with why the corporate-owned “liberal” media isn't reporting this.
And speaking of corporate media: 90% of all the information we see and hear is controlled by six corporations. These would be Time Warner, Disney, News Corporation, Viacom, Comcast, and CBS. These liberal corporations haven't bothered to tell us about the wave of media consolidation that's engulfed the country in the last ten years.
Anyway, check out the article. All fifteen items are things everyone would know if we had a liberal media.
